We have to work together so we’re able to keep the things we have, like our health care and other benefits.

“I’m fighting for a fair package for all the employees, such as the porters and the other workers who aren’t provided with residency. Many of us have to keep up with transportation and living costs in Hudson Valley.”

~ Robb Archigian

Bargaining has begun for a new multi-year contract that covers superintendents, janitors, handypersons, porters, doormen and elevator operators in 500 buildings in Hudson Valley serving about 100,000 tenants.

Every day we’re faced with the challenge of keeping up with the high cost of living in Westchester, which remains one of the wealthiest counties nationwide. Westchester is almost as expensive as the city and providing our children with educational and extracurricular opportunities is difficult on our salaries, not to mention paying for gas, food and other basic necessities.

For us, this contract is about making sure that the men and women who make Hudson Valley home to thousands of tenants can continue to call it home too.
