GrowNYC Workers Collective

On Tuesday, April 25, GrowNYC management was presented with a letter asking for employees in certain programs within GrowNYC to be represented by the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU). As an organization, GrowNYC's mission is to equitably empower all New Yorkers to improve our city. A strong, dedicated and supported staff is essential in that mission.

We fully respect the decision these employees have made to unionize and have already contacted the union to work respectfully together. We look forward to cooperating with our employees' representatives as this process moves forward.

Please rest assured that GrowNYC Management remains committed to working with the Workers Collective in good faith and to reaching a speedy agreement with their designated representative. Meanwhile, we do not foresee that any programming will be impacted, and all sites will remain open as scheduled.

Marcel Van Ooyen
President and CEO, GrowNYC
