The New York City chapter of the Planners Network stands in solidarity with Hunts Point Market workers of Teamsters Local 202 as they strike for a fair wage. As workers and professionals in the built environment, we recognize that cities are run by labor, not private capital. Hunts Point is city-owned land, and it is unconscionable that it is being leased to private companies who refuse to fairly compensate essential workers, especially during a pandemic. We encourage Planners Network members and the planning community to join the picket line at 772 Edgewater Road, Bronx, NY, or make a donation to strike support.
