STATEMENT FROM GARY LABARBERA, PRESIDENT OF BUILDING & CONSTRUCTION TRADES COUNCIL OF GREATER NEW YORK REGARDING HARCO CONSTRUCTION GUILTY VERDICT
June 10, 2016


“Today is a landmark day for New York City’s construction industry and more importantly for worker’s rights,” said Gary LaBarbera, president, Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York. “The guilty verdict handed down today against Harco Construction for the death of Carlos Moncayo sends a clear message that irresponsible contractors and foremen will be held accountable for a worker's death. For far too long criminally negligent and reckless contractors have been merely slapped on the wrist with no real consequences. Today’s decision changes all of that. Irresponsible contractors are now on notice that they can no longer put profits ahead of the safety of workers and that they will be held liable for their actions. While we still grieve for Mr. Moncayo’s family, at least they know that justice has been served.”
