The following statement was released by the DC 37 Union boss Henry Garrido (above) regarding the resumption of 80,000 municipal employees returning to their offices to work as the COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed.

“Progress has been made, but we’re not there yet,” DC37 Executive Director, Henry Garrido, said, referring to safe conditions for resuming in-person work. “For starters, we are only aware of 34 percent of our workforce being vaccinated. The city should focus on bringing that number up before bringing everyone back to work gradually.”

“Second, the inconsistency across the agencies tells you everything you need to know. Some agencies are bringing everyone back every day, others once a week. It does not make sense and makes clear everyone is guessing. We need to figure out the safest approach and apply it evenly across city government.”
