Joint Council Letter in Daily News

Re “Factory foreman Bill” (editorial, Nov. 9): The News has it right. Mayor de Blasio is giving New York City’s industrial sector the attention it deserves. It is industrial jobs — like manufacturing, transportation and warehousing — that have kept this a middle-class city. My union represents tens of thousands of industrial workers in New York who have good wages, benefits and pensions. Too many of these jobs have been lost to developers who turn factories and truck lots into luxury condos or non-union hotels. The mayor’s plan can protect the jobs we have and bring more to New York.
