U.S. Representative Tom Suozzi (D-NY) visited BAC Local 1 New York bricklayers on the jobsite of Ritz-Carlton Residences in New York City on December 11th, 2017. During the visit, he met with Local 1 NY officers and members, praised the quality work BAC members are doing, took up the trowel and laid brick along with our Local members.

Suozzi said that young people should consider a career in the building trades. "When you go to trades like this, you get the skills needed to make a decent living, start a family, buy a house, and live the American dream."

"I loved working with the bricklayers today. They work hard, get paid a decent wage and care about what they do. We need more jobs like these – good jobs at good wages!" Suozzi added.
