The following statement can be attributed to Kyle Bragg, President of 32BJ SEIU:

“At a time when we are seeing relentless attempts from the White House to terrorize immigrant families and hinder their everyday lives, we applaud Governor Cuomo for signing into law legislation that protects immigrant workers against unscrupulous employers who issue threats to report workers or their family members to immigration authorities as retaliation or harassment when they exercise their rights to stand up for themselves against unfair and illegal work conditions. Like all New Yorkers, we believe that all workers who contribute to our communities must be treated fairly and must be supported in their demand for lawful, fair and just conditions for themselves and their coworkers.”

 

DECLARACIÓN DE 32BJ SOBRE LA LEY DEL ESTADO DE NY PARA PROTEGER A LOS TRABAJADORES INMIGRANTES DEL ACOSO

 

La siguiente declaración se puede atribuir a Kyle Bragg, presidente de 32BJ SEIU:

“En un momento en que vemos atentos implacables de la Casa Blanca para aterrorizar a las familias inmigrantes y obstaculizar sus vidas cotidianas, aplaudimos al gobernador Cuomo por firmar una ley que protege a los trabajadores inmigrantes contra empleadores inescrupulosos que emiten amenazas de denunciar a los trabajadores o sus familiares a las autoridades de inmigración como represalia u hostigamiento cuando ejercen su derecho a defenderse de las condiciones de trabajo injustas e ilegales. Como todos los neoyorquinos, creemos que todos los trabajadores que contribuyen a nuestras comunidades deben ser tratados de manera justa y deben ser apoyados en su demanda por condiciones legales, justas y justas para ellos y sus compañeros de trabajo “.
