NEW YORK—The Labor Strong 2021 Coalition, including 32BJ SEIU, DC 37, CWA District 1, and NYSNA released the following statement regarding the New York City Council Speaker’s Race:

“With enthusiasm, the union coalition of 32BJ, DC37, CWA District 1, and NYSNA has made the case for Adrienne Adams to be the next City Council Speaker. She is hard-working, well-liked, and has the proven ability to unite the council behind a worker-led recovery from COVID-19. We’re thrilled that her candidacy has galvanized a majority of the council and we look forward to seeing her make history as the next leader of New York City’s legislative body.”

District Council 37 is New York City's largest public employee union, with 150,000 members and 50,000 retirees.
