In April 2018, nurses at the Albany Medical Center voted to be represented by the New York State Nurses Association and began their fight for a fair contract with AMC administration. Over three years later, the fight continues. The Greater Capital Region Building Trades has fully supported the nurses since the beginning and will continue to do so until their contract is established and ratified.
Our belief in fair wages and benefits for skilled labor goes beyond the construction industry. ALL skilled workers deserve fair compensation and a reasonable quality of life.
