Pres. Floyd Joins Gov. Cuomo, Labor Leaders at LaGuardia Ground Breaking

On August 8th, Local 237 President Gregory Floyd helped break ground on the new Delta terminal at LaGuardia Airport.  The ceremony marked the second phase of the airport’s reconstruction.  Once complete, it will be the first new airport in the US in more than 20 years.  

The $4 billion public-private project will create and maintain tens of thousands of good-paying union jobs and is a significant step in restoring New York City’s crumbling infrastructure.
