President, Local 376
Local 376 represents Construction Laborers, Highway Repairers and Watershed Maintainers, and Apprentice Construction Laborers at the Dept. of Environmental Protection, the Dept. of Sanitation, the Dept. of Transportation and the Dept. of Education. They maintain and repair upstate watersheds that bring clean water into the city, and maintain thousands of miles of DEP water mains, as well as roadways, streets and highways citywide.
“Our biggest achievement as a local has been to finally settle two prevailing wage contracts that give our members wages they deserve and pay compatible with what people in the private sector doing the same jobs earn,” DeMartino said.
