City Council coalition foots the bill for new legislation protecting delivery workers


A coalition of City Council Members held a rally to introduce a new bill to protect delivery workers from being shortchanged from employment protections on April 27.

“All too often we pay lip service to essential workers. Talk is cheap, real action is much better. Today we are taking action, we are taking the first steps in making things better,” said Councilmember Justin Brannan.

City Hall Park was the scene of a coalition between elected officials and delivery workers Tuesday afternoon as politicians look to introduce new legislation that hopes to benefit those who have been keeping the Big Apple’s belly full throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
