Crisis averted in doorman buildings
Just as luxury real estate in New York is emerging from a pandemic-fueled downtown, the city narrowly avoided a strike by the thousands of door staff and maintenance workers who belong to Local 32BJ of the Service Employees International Union. The union reached an agreement with the Realty Advisory Board on Labor Relations on April 20, averting what would have been its first strike since 1991. Had it not, open houses and renovations would have been paused, and tenants in more than 3,000 buildings may have been left sorting their own mail and hauling trash to the curb, among other duties.
As a result of negotiations, wages will increase an average of 3% over four years, meaning that a typical doorman’s pay will be about $62,000 by 2026, when the new contract expires. Union members were able to avoid concessions of health care premiums, sick pay, and vacation time. Union president Kyle Bragg commended door staff for taking on additional duties and risking their health during the height of the pandemic. Reportedly, at least 40 members of the doorman’s union died from COVID-19 during the past two years. “They were there, keeping our buildings running and our communities safe, when the city needed them most,” Bragg told The New York Times.
