This made news a couple weeks back but it’s worth noting now. A partnership between the pharmaceutical companies and labor unions in New York was announced on Sept. 24 at the UA Local 7 Plumbers & Steamfitters in Latham, NY.
The new group, called Pharmaceutical Industry Labor Management Coalition (PILMA) of New York, works to grow this important sector of our economy, create high-quality jobs, and promote medical innovation to cure disease.
Local 7 members were joined by biopharmaceutical industry officials and elected officials – including Sen. Breslin, Assemblymember Steck, Assemblymember Fahy, Assemblymember Santabarbara, Assemblymember McDonald.
