Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and thank you to Local 804 members everywhere. You've loaded and sorted the packages, delivered presents and essential (and non-essential) goods. You're fed the hungry through City Harvest. Now you are delivering the vaccine and putting a stake through the heart of this pandemic. In a million ways, you've been there for New York and for each other. One union, one goal!
