Take Action

The executive board of Local 3599 stands in solidarity with the black community, who have suffered and continue to suffer discrimination on both individual and systemic bases.  We encourage our members to be alert, educated, and actively anti-racist.  This is the commitment to fight racism wherever, whenever, and in whatever form it may be presented.  A core value of the labor movement and unions in general is to give a voice and representation to those who are exploited or oppressed.  We know that this aligns with the movement to fight racism, and as it pertains to the workplace, diversity makes us stronger.  Please use these resources to take action!

Take the 21-Day Anti-racism Challenge!

Enacts the "New York city teleworking expansion act"; provides that each agency shall establish a policy and program to allow employees to perform all or a portion of their duties through teleworking to the maximum extent possible without diminished employee performance; defines the term "telework" to mean to perform normal and regular work functions on a workday that ordinarily would be performed at the agency's principal location at a different location, thereby eliminating or substantially reducing the physical commute to and from such agency's principal location.
