We, the members of New York City's affordable housing development and construction community, oppose Intro 1169 as this legislation:
- Damages our businesses by unjustly excluding us from work on city assisted projects
-Discounts the existing experience, training and certification of our work force
-Ignores our track record of building high-quality affordable housing for New York City residents
-Does not provide any resources or reasonable timeframe to help us access the required apprenticeship programs
We are committed to fighting this bill to preserve our right to compete to work on New York City's affordable housing projects.
