After a tough fight, about 30 Commercial Division members who work at Citi Field Stadium in Queens, the home of the NY Mets, won a good new contract on May 26!
The new deal includes wage increases each of the four years of its term, a shorter period for steady extras to become eligible for health care, improved vacation accrual for these workers, and a training stipend for members.
This victory was possible through actions by Citi Field members and support from commercial members to show employers that we would not settle an unfair deal. We expect to conclude negotiations shortly for the remaining 170 members at Citi Field. When we fight, we win!
