Workers Who Make a Difference
good building workers do not usually get the credit they deserve. that's why for the third year in a row, 32bj seiu, the property service workers union, and manhattan media present the building service workers of the year awards. this special issue, along with the oct. 22 awards ceremony, honors those workers who keep the city's commercial, residential and other buildings running smoothly. we received more than 200 nominations for building workers from all over the city. after winnowing the list down to a handful of finalists, a panel of judges voted on the winners. their profiles are linked below.
thanks to all the sponsors of the building service worker awards: 32bj seiu, the durst organization, george comfort and sons, inc., brookfield properties, cooper square realty, sl green realty corp., newmark knight frank, the city university of new york, ogden cap properties, llc, trinity real estate, fordham university, american building maintenance, douglas elliman property management and bms, llc. -charlotte eichna
