“We endorse Ben Kallos for Manhattan Borough President because he knows how important the skilled craftworkers in the masonry trades are to building and maintaining our city. We know Kallos appreciates the depth and rigor of our members' training and skills because he saw it first hand at our training center.  He was even willing to pick up a trowel and lay some brick and put on a harness and get up on a suspended scaffold,” said Jerry Sullivan, President of International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local 1, NY. “As a Council Member Kallos pushed for more worker training along with better wages and benefits on city subsidized jobs and we know he will continue to do so as the next Manhattan Borough President.”
