Several unions in New York are banding together to help the state make progress on constructing more housing statewide.

This, after Gov. Kathy Hochul and state lawmakers failed to reach a deal on housing legislation last year, despite the governor’s ambitious goal of getting 800,000 new units built over the next decade.

This year, Hochul has focused efforts on passing a tax incentive for developers, similar to the expired 421-A abatement that would encourage office conversions, and using state-owned sites for housing.

Now, a coalition of unions, including the Hotel and Gaming Trades Council and District Council 37, have banded together to help the state achieve that goal.

Manny Pastreich, president of the Local 32BJ, one of the unions involved in the coalition, joined NY1 political anchor Errol Louis on “Inside City Hall” Wednesday to discuss more.
