I would like to take this message to call on all of our members to support our association this April at our 2023 Construction Awards Gala.
Your support will help our association operate effectively to advocate on behalf of all of New York City’s union subcontractors as well as organize networking and educational opportunities. In 2023, STA lobbied on behalf of its members for Material Price Escalation relief. The bill passed both houses of the state legislature and while it was ultimately vetoed by the Governor, we continue to pursue this issue in 2023. We held many direct committee meetings with public agencies, and we have upcoming plans for our “Meet the CM/GC Purchasing Agents” on June 1, 2023, as well as other collaborative events. The money raised from the awards dinner goes directly to funding these types of programs for our members.
Beyond being a fundraiser, however, this night brings together professionals from all aspects of the building process into one room to celebrate and strengthen union construction. In an ever-evolving New York City industry, the unity of owners, general contractors, construction managers, subcontractors and labor leaders is vital to maintaining our market share.
