Live Protest Updates: Influential Union Presses De Blasio To End NYC Curfew Now

Mayor Bill de Blasio is facing continued pressure to lift the 8 p.m. curfew that is in response to the protests, this time from an influential union.

In a tweet sent out this afternoon, the 175,000-member-strong 32BJ SEIU union demanded de Blasio end the curfew while also calling for „the immediate release of all who have been arrested for curfew violations.“ The union comprised of service workers has been an ally to de Blasio in the past, having endorsed him twice during his tenure as mayor.
