  • RESIDENTIAL BURGLARY ALERT IN NYC BOROUGHS

    We have been notified by the NYPD that a recent rash of burglaries has occurred across New York City’s five boroughs. The point of entry is usually in rear windows with air conditioners being pushed in or rear windows left unlocked. Please follow these important safety tips: 

    • Window Air Conditioners - Air conditioners should be properly secured to the window opening to prevent from being pushed in or pulled out.
    • Fire Escape Windows – Install Fire Department approved safety gate.
    • Window Locking Procedures - All windows should be closed and locked.
    • Opened Windows - Avoid sleeping with your windows open. If you can’t, secure the windows so they cannot be opened to allow access to a person.
    • Suspicious Persons - If strangers are seen in the building, on the rooftops, or on the fire escapes: PLEASE CALL 911. 

    Other Safety Tips:

    • Door Buzzer - Do not buzz people into your building unless you are absolutely sure of the visitor’s identity.
    • Piggybacking - Do not hold the lobby door open for a stranger.
    • Door Locks - Equip your door with a deadbolt or deadbolt lock. The lock should have a highly pick-resistant cylinder protected with a metal cylinder guard plate.
    • Door Viewer - Never automatically open your door to strangers. Use a wide-angle peephole. Do not open your door even with the chain latch. A chain latch provides a false sense of security and can easily be defeated by kicking the door.
    • Suspicious Persons - If strangers are seen in the building, on the rooftops, or on the fire escapes: PLEASE CALL 911.
    • Security Survey - An NYPD Crime Prevention Specialist will visit your home to conduct a free security survey and provide a written report with recommendations to improve the existing security of your premise.

  • Greedy contractors are trying to destroy the IUOE Apprenticeship Program - Don't Let Them

    The IUOE invests $180 million every year creating the best-trained workforce in the world. IUOE apprenticeship programs produce highly skilled apprentices who deliver projects on time and under-budget.

    But greedy anti-union contractors want to destroy our apprenticeship programs. They are determined to lower our standards, cut corners, and boost profits on the backs of their workers.

    Unscrupulous contractors have been using apprenticeship as a way to evade federal and state prevailing-wage laws for years. They lie about whether an apprentice is actually registered. It’s the only way a worker on a public-works project can be paid less than the prevailing wage. If this rule allows industry-registered apprenticeship programs into construction, there will be a massive hole blown in prevailing-wage laws. We cannot allow this back-door attack on prevailing wages and apprenticeship.

    It’s time to make our voices heard and stop the assault on our training.

    Send an email right now to the Department of Labor: Visit the saveiuoeapprenticeships.org website to learn more and to send your message

    Tell them to protect IUOE apprenticeships.
