Forest City executive on CBA signatory BUILD: "THEY WORK FOR US" (plus, criticism of state's owner's representative)
Participants claim they were promised jobs and union cards by not only by BUILD but also by representatives of Forest City Ratner.
By the way, "yet another c ludlow" refers, I'm fairly, to Charles Ludlow of STV, which was hired Empire State Development to be its owner's representative to monitor construction and assess progress. (That's not the same as the job of environmental monitor for the state, which is done by HDR.)
So it doesn't look like Forest City was eager to be reporting to the state. As I've suggested, Atlantic Yards may be more a private-public partnership than a public-private one.
