Statement from 32BJ President Hector Figueroa on Affordable Housing Plan

We applaud the New York City Council and Mayor de Blasio for coming together on a plan that will create more affordable housing that the city’s working families desperately need. We also thank them for finding common ground with labor and housing advocates to reaffirm that progress is made when when a broad spectrum of New Yorkers unite on critical issues. This agreement will help more of the workers who keep our city running continue to live here, raise their kids here and stay here as they get older. We commend Council Members Richards and Greenfield who as chairs of the Zoning and Land Use Committees, respectively, helped bring this deal together and score a win for hard-working New Yorkers. We call on Albany to secure all the other elements needed to make this plan a reality.
