We Must Enact the Grieving Families Act Now

September 7, 2023

The Lipsig Firm proudly supports NYSTLA’s efforts to enact the Grieving Families Act.

Statement from our NY State Trial Lawyers Association:
Construction-related deaths in the city are at a 10-year high and Latino construction workers accounted for 25% of the lives lost. New York Committee for Occupational Safety & Health (NYCOSH) Executive Director, Charlene Obernauer, calls on the governor to sign the Grieving Families Act and protect our fallen workers.
“New York City is the city of dreams. But embedded in those dreams is a nightmare: one that has for hundreds of years abandoned the weak in their greatest moments of need.
It is my hope that this Labor Day, our governor remembers the fallen workers who died in pursuit of the American Dream and signs the Grieving Families Act. New York is the heart of the labor movement, and our state must lead the crusade to protect workers.
It also must restore hope to the relatives of those who lost their lives chasing this dream. The Grieving Families Act will honor the fallen, and bring justice to the living.”
