Construction union members across the country are threatening to walk off the job over Trump’s win.
On Tuesday, the Local 821, an industrial union, sent a letter to all workers that said it would not allow construction contractors to unionize after Trump’s victory.
“If you were told by a union leader you had to sign a contract with them, you would know what a sham that is,” Local 811 President David Storch said.
The union has been pushing the state to strike over Trump policies on immigration and worker safety.
In a statement, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which represents the state’s 4.8 million workers, said the union will hold a vote on Wednesday to formally recognize the union.
Trump has promised to enact policies that are “dangerous” to workers and the economy, and he has pledged to protect the environment and build roads, bridges and airports.
Trump also promised to cut taxes and regulations and eliminate regulations that have been “job killers” and have made it harder for businesses to hire workers.
The president-elect has said he would work to end union busting and help workers make ends meet.
But union leaders say the policies that Trump has enacted have weakened the middle class and harmed workers.
