Dolce Panepinto has joined the fight to hold the rich and powerful accountable at University at Buffalo. A legal team is requesting that a nonprofit corporation that develops residence halls for UB, make their financial records public. The State Supreme Court has been asked to force the University at Buffalo Foundation Faculty-Student Housing Corp. to release annual budgets and other documents related to the nonprofit organization.
“Taking cases, which help empower people, whether construction workers or students, is our firm’s mission,” stated Sean Cooney, a partner at Dolce Panepinto.
A lot is at stake this November for workers all across the state. New Yorkers will have the opportunity to vote on hosting a constitutional convention. The purpose of this convention is to write a new state constitution or revise the existing one. However, if this happens it could lead to many problems for workers and their families. Labor regulations are already under attack in Congress, and it is crucial that we keep state protections for workers. Currently our state constitution gives workers the right to fair compensation and the right to unionize. We need to ensure these rights stay ours and VOTE NO in November.
These are just some of the groups who will be voting against the convention:
