2023: A Year-In-Review
This year, the whole world watched as workers across New York City and across the country came together in an unprecedented wave of activism and solidarity. In NYC, we saw more than 70,000 striking workers hit the streets demanding fair contracts, improved working conditions, protections against unregulated technology and a voice at work. Healthcare, entertainment, media, retail, legal, cultural, manufacturing, academic and other workers all stood up to say that enough was enough, and they were joined on their picket lines by union siblings and supporters from every sector of our City’s economy.
The impact of the surge in strike activity was felt far beyond just the unions and members involved. Other workers watched and learned from the strikers, and put those lessons into practice when it came to their own negotiations. The result? For every strike victory we saw this year, we saw another negotiation end in success without the need to strike, because union members turned out in force to show the bosses what solidarity looked like. Employers saw what was happening in our City’s streets, and many thought twice about bringing the movement to their own doorstep.
The wind is at our backs, but we can’t afford to lose momentum. Corporations haven’t given up on wrestling power away from their workers – just this month veteran labor reporter Steven Greenhouse wrote about how they’re attempting to crush new unions by delaying negotiations and making it harder than ever to reach a first contract. It’s a tactic we’ve certainly seen here in New York City, where workers from our coffee shops to our legal services providers have successfully unionized only to find themselves bogged down in first contract negotiations that drag on for years because there’s little incentive for bosses to come to the table in good faith.
The New York City Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO is committed to continuing to support and fight alongside our affiliates and labor organizations across our City to level the playing field, and build an economy that works for all working people. But to do that, we need your help. We’ll continue to reach out with the latest news, and ways that you can support workers in the struggle through Union Matters and through our social media platforms, and we encourage you to share those updates with others.
As we say goodbye to 2023 and look ahead to 2024, we’re encouraged by the news that a potential strike of more than 20,000 building service workers has been averted through successful negotiations, leaving us with no major job actions currently ongoing. But the bosses aren’t going to rest, and neither can the labor movement.
On behalf of all of us at the New York City Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO, we extend our deepest appreciation and gratitude for your solidarity and for your partnership, and we wish you and your loved ones a bright, happy, and healthy 2024.
See below for the 2023 Union Matters Year in Review!
Throughout the winter and early days of spring, the CLC and our affiliates showed up in solidarity on picket lines and at demonstrations in support of striking nurses, musicians, and publishing company workers. These workers, alongside the hundreds who turned out to stand with them, would set the tone for the historic surge of successful labor actions that would come to define the year.
Labor and Civil rights leaders gathered in February for the NYC CLC's annual Labor and Civil Rights event, a panel in which they engaged in a vibrant discussion of the role of the Labor Movement in the fight for racial, social, and economic justice. Moderator Anthony Harmon, AFT Vice President and President, NAACP New York Branch, was joined by Edgar Romney, Secretary-Treasurer, Workers United, SEIU; Gloria Middleton, President, CWA Local 1180; Jonathan Smith, President, New York Metro Area Postal Workers Union; George Gresham, President, 1199SEIU; and NYC CLC Secretary-Treasurer and UFT Vice President for Academic High Schools Janella Hinds. Panelists reflected on the last three years and their impact on working families in New York City and across the country: the disproportionate effects of COVID-19 on African Americans, the challenges facing workers as prices rise and incomes remain flat, how their organizations are engaging in conversations around systemic racism and violence, and how all of these issues intersect. Watch video of the panel here!
The CLC also continued our work with Climate Jobs NY (CJNY), the coalition of labor unions united around a shared goal of combating climate change while reversing income inequality. Building off years of partnership with New York and national labor leaders to foster high-quality, climate-friendly employment that advances equity, the ILR School Climate Jobs Institute launched in New York City with an event co-sponsored by CJNY and the Climate Jobs National Resource Center. It is the first U.S. academic institution focused on conducting research and developing policy for governments across the nation to support clean energy targets and create union jobs that help drive a more inclusive and equitable economy.
In March, the CLC joined Workers United/SEIU (ILGWU) and the Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition for the commemoration of the 112th anniversary of the 1911 Triangle Factory Fire, a pivotal event in US history and a turning point in labor’s struggle to achieve fair wages, dignity at work and safe working conditions. Outrage at the deaths of 146 mostly young, female immigrants inspired the union movement and helped to institute worker protections and fire safety laws.
We also continued our participation in the Community Working Group that has been working to create a community vision for the future of the Kingsbridge Armory. First opened in 1917 but now vacant for almost 30 years, the Kingsbridge Armory is one of the Bronx's vital landmarks. Today, the City has a historic opportunity to redevelop the Armory, placing the needs and priorities of Bronx residents and business owners at the center of the process.

About a dozen unions and labor organizations including the CLC joined forces in April at the City Council to rally for a higher minimum wage in the final state budget. As New Yorkers faced the gravest cost of living crisis in 40 years, we urged Albany lawmakers both to raise the state's minimum wage and index it to inflation to make future minimum wage increases automatic. Eventually, these efforts would result in the minimum wage increasing to $16 in New York City, Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester, with wage increases tied to the Consumer Price Index beginning in 2027.
We also engaged in efforts to ensure that the City finally deliver economic stability for an essential workforce. The city was required by Local Law 115 of 2021 to implement a minimum pay rate for delivery workers — or “deliveristas” — by Jan. 1, 2023, but months later, the workers were still waiting. In May, NYC CLC President Vincent Alvarez and Workers Justice Project Executive Director Ligia Guallpa penned an OpEd in the New York Daily News calling on the City to fulfill that promise.
With our partners at the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH), we once again hosted a Workers Memorial Day event to honor those who have died or suffered injuries or illnesses while on the job, recognize the sacrifices made by all essential workers on the front lines, and renew our fight for strong safety and health protections for all working people. The names of nearly fifty working New Yorkers who died over the past year were read aloud at the event at Foley Square, where we were joined by unions and labor orgs from across the City, NYC Council Committee on Civil Service and Labor Chair Carmen De La Rosa, New York State Senator and Chair of the Committee on Labor Jessica Ramos, and additional elected officials. A livestream of the ceremony is available here.
We also continued partnering with NYCOSH on our ongoing Occupational Safety and Health Training Series, with expert Monona Rossol conducting two worker safety forums. The first training highlighted asbestos–the OSHA rules that apply, sources of asbestos, the human tragedy of asbestos exposure, and other topics aimed at helping unions and labor orgs to gain a stronger understanding of asbestos and how we can better advocate for worker protections. The second focused on heat stress, which can result in heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, or heat rashes and can also increase the risk of other injuries. Look for more trainings in this series in 2024!
On the political front, the CLC made two rounds of endorsements in City Council primary races, with our member-to-member NYC LaborVotes! Program focusing on educating, engaging, and facilitating union members’ and their households’ ability to cast their ballot during the 2023 elections, with our volunteers making phone calls, canvassing, and completing literature drops at thousands of doors. Throughout the spring, with our affiliates we turned out union members to elect candidates who will engage with us to build a New York City economy that works for working people.
Our solidarity efforts on behalf of striking workers continued through the spring, supporting members of the Writers Guild of America East, the Insider Union, Hispanic Society, and doctors employed by Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai at Elmhurst Hospital.
At the May CLC Executive Board meeting we also adopted a resolution reaffirming our support for workers across all sectors of New York City who face significant challenges in organizing and bargaining for living wages, benefits, and better working conditions. The NYC CLC resolved to work to mobilize its affiliates and allies to support worker campaigns, including new organizing/union recognition campaigns, contract campaigns, and strikes, through public education and outreach, direct action, and political advocacy; and that the CLC will make available its own resources to affiliates and to unorganized workers in support of such actions. Read the full resolution here.
The CLC was pleased to be able to host the first in a series of digital skill-building trainings for CLC-affiliated union members, staff and community partners. This training covered content planning and social media best practices, and was led by NYS AFL-CIO’s Liz Sutton O’Neill.
At our annual Awards Reception in May, the CLC honored Patricia White, President of the Theatrical Wardrobe Union, Local 764 IATSE and Rich Maroko, President of the NY Hotel & Gaming Trades Council for their years of service in building and maintaining worker power not only within their own industries, but on behalf of working people and families across New York City. We also recognized the New York Branch of the NAACP for their commitment to the ongoing fight for civil rights and social and economic justice, and their long and rich history of working with the NYC Labor Movement to promote fair wages, good benefits, workplace protections and equal opportunities.
Spring also brought the kickoff to the CLC’s Labor Mobilizes-New Americans Initiative, with the CLC working together in partnership with unions across New York City to assist eligible permanent residents in navigating the process to becoming new U.S. citizens. Naturalization allows people to vote, apply for federal jobs, receive full legal protections, earn higher wages, and make investments that help make the economy stronger for all of us. Through a series of in-person and virtual activities throughout the year, the Initiative has been assisting union members and their families through the application and gathering of necessary documentation, culminating with an attorney review process on National Citizenship Day in September.

There was no such thing as a summer slowdown at the CLC, with SAG-AFTRA’s more than 30K NYC members voting in July to join their WGA siblings on strike against the AMPTP, and unions organizing solidarity actions at picket sites across the City, including a National Day of Solidarity in August and a NY/NJ Day of Action in September. Union members and supporters also turned out for striking workers at the Children’s Law Center as well as for the members of the DCINY Orchestra who continued to wage their campaign for a fair contract well into the fall.
In August, CLC President Vincent Alvarez testified at a hearing of the NYC Council Committee on Civil Service and Labor alongside SAG-AFTRA and WGA East, called in order to better understand the concerns of the two entertainment unions and vote to move forward two resolutions in support of fair contract negotiations for both unions. Read more about the hearing and resolutions here.
In response to the labor activism happening here and around the country, Pres. Alvarez also penned a Labor Day Op-Ed in the NY Daily News, writing that “workers are done waiting for the wealth to trickle down, for bosses to stop rigging the game in their own favor. They’re watching each other, learning from each other, and showing up for each other. They’re showing the bosses that when you take one of us on, you take all of us on.” (Link for non-subscribers)
CLC staff spent the summer busy with preparations for the nation’s oldest and largest Labor Day Parade, and on September 9th the rain held off and spirits soared as more than 75,000 workers from across our City and region came together to march in solidarity up Fifth Avenue. 200-plus local unions and constituency groups were joined by Federal, State, and City elected officials, with approximately 30,000 supporters cheering them on from the sidewalks. This year, our labor movement was honored to be led by Parade Grand Marshal Nancy Hagans, RN, BSN, CCRN, President of the New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA), and Parade Chair Mark Henry, International Vice President of the Amalgamated Transit Union, along with the NYC CLC's Executive Council. Thank you to all who came out, and save the date for September 7, 2024!
The CLC also turned out to deliver a message of solidarity with Starbucks baristas organizing with Starbucks Workers United on the National Starbucks Day of Action. CLC staff joined hundreds of customers, union members, elected officials and allies in leafletting Starbucks stores to educate its customer base about the mega corporation's blatant union-busting tactics. The day’s actions hit more than half of the total number of Starbucks stores in New York.
UAW workers across the country joined the strike lines in September, with NYC’s nearest plant in Tappan, New York answering the call just a week later. In response, the CLC helped to coordinate a SAG-AFTRA/WGA East/UAW picket that together brought striking members from all three unions plus supporters from across the City. Days before the event took place, the WGA East reached a historic tentative agreement with AMPTP, and still turned out to encourage SAG and UAW members to hold the lines and keep up the fight.

In October, the CLC was proud to be part of the long-awaited dedication of the Triangle Fire Memorial to the victims and legacy of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire at the site of the historic fire in New York City. Watch a video of the dedication ceremony here. The Triangle Fire Memorial tells the story of the fire in the languages spoken by the victims: English, Yiddish and Italian. It is also one of the only memorials in America dedicated to workers. We invite you to visit the Memorial at the corner of Greene Street and Washington Place in Greenwich Village (23 Washington Place) and find more press coverage of the dedication here!
Together with UFT, the CLC held our Future in Focus: Exploring the World of Organized Labor and Unionized Careers event, an opportunity for students to learn about unionized careers in New York City, as well as collective bargaining and the impact of organized labor on our society. They also had the chance to hear directly from young workers, all members of various IATSE locals, working throughout the entertainment sector. Thank you to all who participated in both the panel event and the tabling sessions!
This year the CLC’s Community Boards Initiative added a new pillar to the program. In addition to assisting rank-and-file members seek appointments, we are currently working with affiliates to establish Community Board Outreach Plans. These plans are designed, on a case by case basis, to help affiliates connect with appointed labor siblings and their respective Community Boards regarding contract negotiations, new organizing, and strikes and their impact on the community.
We also hosted a second digital skill-building training for CLC-affiliated union members, staff and community partners, again facilitated by the NYS AFL-CIO’s Liz Sutton O’Neill and this time exploring best practices for creating short form video for social media. This is an ongoing series, so please keep an eye out for information about upcoming trainings that your organizations might find helpful!
Finally, as many of you know, FIFA has awarded the UNITED Bid, made up of the United States, Canada, and Mexico, to host the 2026 World Cup. The NYC CLC and its affiliates have met regularly throughout the year to assess the impact of the tournament. The NYC Labor Movement will continue in 2024 to work with the Co-Host City Managers and its committee to ensure strong labor standards in New York City.
