The following statement can be attributed to Kyle Bragg, 32BJ Vice President:

April 19, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — “Today’s findings by OSHA are more proof that the owners of Flatbush Gardens have no regard for the health and safety of their workers or the welfare of their tenants,” said Kyle Bragg, 32BJ Vice President. “The workers – who have been locked out since November – have for years voiced concerns about deteriorating structural conditions at the complex; their concerns have been ignored by the building’s owners.”

With more than 120,000 members in eight states and Washington, D.C., including 70,000 in New York, 32BJ is the largest property services union in the country.
