Building workers are lifesavers, literally. That's what struck me while reading over the amazing profiles that make up the next 10 pages. From suicide attempts to people who've fallen on subway tracks, these workers are ready to spring into action and help at any given moment. Because they are the eyes and ears of the buildings that they take care of, they are the most likely to step in when help is urgently needed. For the sixth year in a row, SEIU 32BJ, the largest property services union in the country, and Manhattan Media are proud to honor their contributions with the Building Workers of the Year Awards. With so many great nominees, it was difficult winnowing down the list to the following winners. Their profiles and amazing life stories are detailed in the next 10 pages. Three of the 19 winners were uable to meet with us before press time, but we plan on having coverage of Gladys Rivera, Jose Repollent and Daniel Rosenblum in our next issue. Thanks to all the sponsors of the Building Service Worker Awards: SEIU 32BJ, Algin Management, Durst Organization, Ogden Cap, Cooper Square, BMS, Feil Organization, Kaufman Organization, CUNY, Douglas Elliman Property Management, George Comfort & Sons, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, Monday Properties, Yankee Stadium, Segal Company, Akam Associates, Balber Pickard, SL Green, Madison Square Garden, Gerner Kronick & Valcarcel, Converged Technology Group, Robert Derector Associates, Stonehenge Management.
