The RAB and Local 32BJ SEIU have reached a tentative agreement in the negotiations





About RAB 

Our Mission
The RAB negotiates collective bargaining agreements on behalf of owners and operators of real property with unions that represent their maintenance and operating employees. We also advise and represent members in the administration of their collective bargaining agreements and in matters concerning personnel and human resources.

History
From its inception, the Realty Advisory Board on Labor Relations, Inc. (RAB) has taken the position that the representation of employers is best accomplished by working cooperatively with building workers and their legal representatives.

New York City in the 1930’s was plagued with labor disputes in the Building Service Industry.  On November 1, 1934, members of union Local 32B went on strike thereby shutting down elevator service to New York’s skyscrapers.  The Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), along with New York City Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia, found it necessary to step in for fear of continued violence.  REBNY and Mayor LaGuardia promoted the resolution of labor disputes through arbitration, and an agreement was successfully reached on November 21, 1934 and the RAB was organized in order to handle similar labor matters in the future.
A few years later New York City and the building service industry suffered another major loss as a result of Hurricane Sandy.  Losses to health, supplemental unemployment, and legal fund benefits totaled to about $1,030,000.00.  The RAB again worked to extend benefits to affected employees, and avoided bumping issues in commercial buildings.

Currently the RAB sits on multiple committees and serves as a representative of the building service industry.  To date, the RAB has 4,077 Commercial and Residential Building members as well as building maintenance contractor members who employ more than 20,000 members of Local 32BJ.  The RAB continues to negotiate collective bargaining agreements on behalf of building owners who employ the major unions in the building service industry, which include SEIU, Local 32BJ, Local 94, IUOE, and a Craft Groups.

De Blasio touts progress on OneNYC

Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration says it has made progress on its OneNYC plan, the policy document that sets a course for the city's efforts on environmental and climate change resiliency — from solar at City Hall to a new tool to control buildings' energy use.

"This morning, the Mayor announced that of the nearly 3,000 public buildings with any significant energy use, almost one-third already have retrofits in place or underway," Nilda Mesa, head of the mayor's Office of Sustainability, told a joint hearing of the City Council Committees on Recovery and Resiliency and Environmental Protection on Monday. "The City has installed nearly four megawatts of solar on its buildings in the last year alone, bringing the total to nearly five megawatts."
The public buildings already getting retrofits account for roughly half the greenhouse-gas emissions from city-owned buildings, and City Hall itself is installing a solar installation and a fuel-cell generator, she said.

NYC With Energy Conversation Tactics Taking Hold
 The city has also issued requests for proposals for another 15 megawatts of solar — including 66 schools, Bellevue Hospital, Hostos Community College, the Bronx Hall of Justice, the Queens Museum and the Abe Stark Ice Rink, among others.

 Already, private buildings have doubled their solar installations since the end of 2013, going from 25 megawatts of solar to 54 megawatts currently across 3,500 installations, Mesa testified.
The administration also announced a new program to measure and control energy use in large buildings — the New York City Energy and Water Performance Map, a tool created in partnership with NYU's Center for Urban Science and Progress that lets building owners and managers analyze water and energy consumption.

NYC Without Energy Conversation Tactics Taking Hold
"We're greening every public building, with retrofits now in buildings representing half of all public building emissions," de Blasio said in a statement. "Our progress is clear, but we won't stop leading by example — and providing the tools for the private sector to do the same — because our very future is at stake."

Environmentally Sustainable Facility Solutions

There’s more to janitorial services than a mop hitting the floor! Environmental concerns and new technologies have taken commercial cleaning service to a new level. Which is why Guardian Service Industries provides environmentally sustainable facility solutions such as green cleaning, organic based window cleaning, Green Shield Certified pest control and energy efficient and cost-effective lighting! Curious to see how all this rolls into one of our buildings? 


 What is Green cleaning? Refers to using cleaning methods and products with environmentally friendly ingredients and procedures which are designed to preserve human health and environmental quality. Green cleaning techniques and products avoid the use of products which contain toxic chemicals, some of which emit volatile organic compounds causing respiratory, dermatological and other conditions. Green cleaning can also describe the way residential and industrial cleaning products are manufactured, packaged and distributed. If the manufacturing process is environmentally friendly and the products are biodegradable, then the term "green" or "eco-friendly" may apply.

What is Organic Based Window Cleaning? What are the pros and cons of using pure water versus traditional window cleaning systems? Water removes the environmental impact of chemicals by using pure water alone while also allowing operatives to clean windows safely – and more quickly - from the ground. As for using chemicals, did you know chemical window cleaning agents contribute to indoor air pollution? Our window specialists come out and clean your windows, using natural, nontoxic ingredients, so you can bask in the sunlight...year round!


What is Green Shield Certified Pest Control? Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest control that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in conjunction with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.



What is Energy Efficient and Cost-Effective Lighting? Our Lighting and Electric division ensures your systems are optimized and cost effective. Our vision is to create an individualized service plan that reduces your administration/energy cost, prevents system failures, and limits your liability. While our goal is to provide your business with mobile electrical service and solutions that enhance electrical, lighting, safety, and security levels, and are energy efficient and cost-effective.
