Dear Local 1500 member,
As always, you are holding the frontline during this extremely tough time. New Yorkers would not be able to get through this crisis without you.
As the days go on and more schools, businesses, and key locations temporarily close, you continue to get up, out, and back to work every day to ensure New Yorkers have what they need to survive.
Thank you for all of your hard work, your selflessness, your commitment, and the sacrifices you have made to help us all get through this time. We expect that your employers will never forget what you’ve done, and are doing to make their companies stay open and profitable. If you are a customer reading this, think about how difficult and how necessary retail jobs are, and please take the time to thank the employees when you see them.
One of the factors that will always be remembered is how critical your jobs are, where it’s basically you (retail) and emergency service/healthcare employees that are expected to keep working, no matter what the situation is. Rest assured that Local 1500 will do everything possible to make sure you are treated fairly and are in no way financially disadvantaged during this time.
