Local 1501 represents 16 different titles, including ticket agents, attendants, maintainers, animal keepers, custodians, and gardeners at five city zoos, the New York Aquarium, and cultural institutions within the Wildlife Conservation Society. “As new leaders, we are excited and bring a lot of positive energy that’s needed to move our local union forward and to protect members’ hard-earned benefits and work rights,” Domenech said.
