Our LSNYC members are serious about our contract demands and are willing to go on strike if necessary. Our members sent in selfies saying what they would be willing to strike for.
“LSNYC: Put DEI principles into practice and meet LSSA’s contract demands!” - Emily, Manhattan Shop
“You can’t say you’re about racial or economic justice and simultaneously assign different values to a person’s 365 days based on whether they’re a lawyer or not. If LSNYC refuses to make salary scales equitable, regardless of position, we should just pack up and call it a day.” – Liz, Brooklyn Shop
“LSNYC vows to helping low income households, when many of their employees fit under that same bracket, when will they start to do the same for us! If a strike is what it takes, then let’s do it!” - Danielle, Brooklyn Shop
"I am holding management accountable to their promises and to pay equity for support staff. If it takes a strike, then that's just going to be what it takes." – Andrew, Brooklyn Shop
“At LSNYC, we take pride in taking care of our clients’ needs, but what message does it send when management constantly disregards the needs of the countless staff working tirelessly to provide for our clients? As a Housing law advocate, I won't be able to effectively assist my clients in their eviction cases if i am on the same eviction line due to lack of pay equity. I will strike to show management that in order for us to provide for our clients they need to provide for us.” – Wilesca, Brooklyn Shop
