The August meeting for Local 1049 will take place on Tuesday August 20th. At the meeting we will have a special guest, Assemblyman Mike LiPetri. The Assemblyman represents the 9th District which includes the communities of Babylon, West Bablyon, North Bablyon, Bay Shore, Brightwaters, South Farmingdale, Massapequa, Massapequa Park, and West Islip. Since he was elected in 2018, Assemblyman LiPetri has worked hard to build a strong relationship with organized labor. He joined our brothers and sisters in the Construction Trades by supporting a bill to redefine public works. This bill would have expanded the projects that would be required to pay a prevailing wage. He is also sponsoring a bill that would protect our law enforcement officers after a video went viral of residents pouring water on police officers in New York City. I encourage all members, regardless of political party, to come to the meeting and listen to what Assemblyman LiPetri has to say.
