NYC sanitation workers union endorses Kathryn Garcia for mayor, Sandra Ung for City Council

City Council candidate Sandra Ung and former sanitation commissioner and mayoral candidate Kathryn Garcia, on Wednesday, April 7, called for a full restoration of sanitation services to serve businesses in Flushing that have been hit hard by the pandemic and now face the challenge of reopening. 

Ung and Garcia were joined by sanitation workers and Harry Nespoli, president of Teamsters Local 831, whose union endorsed both candidates for office. The Uniformed Sanitation Men’s Association, Local 831 IBT and its 6,700 members collect trash, recycling and organic waste from New York City homes. Every winter, Local 831 Teamsters plow the streets to keep New York moving.
