Union Resilience Post Sandy is a video that depicts the perseverance of maintenance workers and porters of labor union SEIU 32BJ in maintaining the main building of DC37, the largest municipal labor union in New York City. DC37 headquarters are located at the corner of Barclay and West Street just two blocks from Hudson River. For over 24 hours I was fielding calls from colleagues concerned about the welfare of the workers as they were trapped on the second floor due to rising waters. The building’s Assistant Manager Mike Corbin, lives only two houses down from me in Marble Hill so we made plans to trek down and photograph the damage and check in on the workers. The photos in the video are those that were taken as soon as we were able to get to the building some 24 hours after the waters subsided. The news footage by “Sky News” were of the building as the waters were rising.
