President, Local 508
Stein fights aggressively for his members, whom he calls the “first responders who patrol New York City’s public beaches and pools.” Under Stein’s leadership, the local has made political action a priority, and on election days, Stein volunteers with hundreds of City Lifeguards and Supervisors to support the labor-friendly candidates DC 37 endorses.
“Political action is labor’s battle ground,” Stein said. “If we are to achieve economic victories and social justice for our members, political activism is essential. The ballot box is where we show our strength as a union.”
