Support local 831 president, Harry Nespoli and his slate

This petition had 134 supporters

This is a petition in support of Uniformed Sanitation worker association, local 831.


My name is Salvatore Gomez, current garage steward of QE12

In the last few months, we have seen an upswing of complaints, allegations and attacks against the current slate and its leadership. Even though organized labor is under attack around the country, I can sincerely say that, we NYC sanitation workers, have the strongest and most respected union in the city of New York. Harry Nespoli and his slate have fought countless battles against the powers that be, which would see organized labor die a “quick death”, and has won. Even in the streets, our business agents are fighting the battles for the workers and getting result. For example, my BA, John Campisi, has done so much to improve the conditions of the garages under his watch.

Countless other municipal unions in New York have lost so much over the years, but the sanitation worker continues to achieve raises, benefits and pension wins, time and time again. The current climate in the labor union has seen anti-union legislation, budgetary cutbacks, etc. affect so many union workers, but 831 continue to win. Every union has its disgruntled workers, but I find the complaints to be unfounded or misinformed.

I am a proud Sanitation worker and I sign this petition in full support of our president Harry Nespoli and his slate.
