Moya Holds Rally at City Hall, Calls for Greater Safety Protections for Construction Workers

Council Member Francisco Moya gathered with other officials and labor leaders on Thursday to demand the passage of Carlos’ Law, state legislation that aims to protect the lives of construction workers from dangerous building sites.

Moya, along with Assembly Members Marcos Crespo and Carmen de la Rosa, Building Trades Council President Gary LaBarbera, and laborers, rallied on the steps of City Hall last week and called on Albany to pass Carlos’ Law

The legislation, written by then- Assembly Member Moya in 2015 and supported by late state Sen. Jose Peralta, was prompted by the death of 22-year-old Carlos Moncayo, who was buried alive on a construction site in Manhattan in 2015 while directed to perform illegal excavation work.
