On Thursday, February 9 we lost a member of our union family when Doorman Miguel Gonzalez died while sweeping ice-coated steps at his building on East 93rd Street in Manhattan. Mr. Gonzalez leaves behind a wife and stepson.
In the 32BJ family, we know that our members risk injury and even death each day as they go about doing their jobs. We are heartbroken that one of our own has passed while at work, caring for the building he worked at for over 20 years. While we can’t compensate his family for their loss, we can sympathize and show our support during this difficult time.
