October 4, 2018 – Today, Sean McGarvey, President of North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) issued the following statement commending the Terminal One plan to revitalize John F. Kennedy International Airport:
“We commend New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for his announcement today on the new $13 billion Terminal One plan to revitalize JFK Airport.
“This project was awarded to a team including Ullico, along with the Carlyle Group and JLC Infrastructure. It will allow the pension funds of our hardworking members to invest in critical infrastructure and put over 4,000 union members to work, while also supporting 8,000 permanent jobs upon completion.
“The Terminal One rebuild will also allow us to expand our training and apprenticeship programs in South Queens and the other New York City boroughs, which provide pathways of opportunity to the middle class. We look forward to working in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to break ground on this transformative project as soon as possible.”
