An Open Shop is a Broken Shop!
On January 24, 2018, thousands of union construction workers from all building trades rallied to defend their hard-earned pensions and fight for their future.
During this massive rally, hardworking construction union members called on State Street Bank, who has over $15 Billion of construction union pension dollars invested in Mitsui Fudosan bank to stop using their pension money to work against providing jobs.
Mitsui Fudosan Bank is a 90% owner of 50 Hudson Yards a project that is currently being built non-union in the beginning phases of the project. Union members rallied to tell State Street and Mitsui that our pension dollars will not be used against us and we won’t stand for that.
The NYC Building Trades is asking for State Street Bank to facilitate a meeting with all parties involved with 50 Hudson Yards to resolve the matter.
