With 31 members facing term-limits and with special elections slated to fill five recent vacancies, it is set to be a transformative year for the New York City Council. City politics have undergone a dynamic shift since the last class of Council members was seated after the 2017 municipal election, and activists and organized labor are hoping to take advantage of that fact in announcing their support for a new crop of Council contenders.

New York City’s public and private unions are joining forces to influence the makeup of the next City Council — a new association that’s formed in lieu of their previous involvement in the Working Families Party.

Five unions that comprise more than 360,000 employees are announcing a partnership called #LaborStrong2021 on Tuesday. In the coming weeks, they will roll out 26 Council endorsements — enough to influence the speaker’s race if they’re successful at the polls.
