We are the underrepresented majority.
We are the real human lives directly affected by COVID-19.
We’re the artists and service workers that give our city its heart.
We are financially unimpacted allies.
We are people who believe human life comes before profit.
We are sick and tired of unsafe living conditions and greedy corporate landlords
We’re your neighbors, colleagues, friends and family.
We are you.
We demand the following to be enshrined in a legally-binding collective bargaining agreement between the Full Time Tenant Union and our landlords-- an agreement guaranteeing these rights for all tenants in the FTTU-member buildings:
We demand an immediate and comprehensive cancellation of rent, including back rent starting April 2020, for the entirety of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
No one is to be illegally evicted for the duration of the eviction moratorium, or due to non-payment after the moratorium has lifted. Rehouse all tenants who have been evicted illegally or legally during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tenant unions are protected under law (Real Property Law § 230) which allows tenants to organize and call for change without fear of reprisal from their landlords. We demand an end to the harassment from Full Time Management LLC that we have experienced.
We demand a renewed interest in the maintenance of buildings and faster responses to issues.
We demand that a tenant’s ability to renew a lease not be affected from participation in the Tenant Union’s rent strike or inability to pay rent during the pandemic.
We demand that new rents reflect the current housing market.
FTTU is a part of the statewide rent strike campaign supported by Housing Justice For All.
We are also a part of the Bushwick-Bed-Stuy Tenants Coalition fighting for the cancellation of rent, landlord accountability, and tenants rights.
Please call your state reps to demand that they support the 3-Bill Package currently in-review by the State Legislature.
