According to Joint Council 16:
Labor leaders have repeatedly reached out to the organizers of Frieze New York and their local events coordinator, Project Glue, LLC without response. The unions have demanded that the New York City Parks Department look into altering the permitting process for major private events in order to better evaluate labor standards. Last week, a hearing was held to shed light on the festival’s use of public park space at Randall’s Island and its consequences for New York City residents and workers.
Labor unions involved in the event include: Teamsters Joint Council 16, the NY District Council of Carpenters, Painters DC9, Operating Engineers Local 30 and IATSE Locals 829 and 1.
