Local 1212 Is in The Building

10/7/2011

The NFL is currently moving their corporate headquarters. Big moves like this, especially when they take place in major metropolitan areas such as New York City, require skilled professionals, and USWU Local 1212 members are much sought-after for this challenging work. Not only do they have a great track record, but their rates are some of the best in the industry. So it was no surprise they were originally chosen for this move.

But then, under pressure from Teamsters Local 814, the NFL suddenly refused to allow the members of Local 1212 to work in their headquarters. Of course, USWU couldn’t stand by and let that happen, so we went to the public. We showed that with teamwork—along with a little planning and creativity—we can accomplish big things in a short amount of time.

In just three hours of handbilling and a bombardment of phone calls to the NFL Headquarters from a concerned public who recognized just how unfair this treatment was, Local 1212 members are now back on the job.
