Labor Alert!!!!

On November 22 the Department of Labor (DOL) issued new regulations relating to the scheduling of employees, which if implemented, will create a significant burden to our membership (Call-In/On-Call Scheduling).

The board is currently working to finalize a position paper/statement and setting up meetings with the Governor’s office. We are also in the process of meeting with key legislators and aligning ourselves with larger trade groups to fight these regulations (see attached link; scroll down to “Department of Labor” in the right hand column).

We have 45 days, from November 22, to voice our concerns.

We will provide the membership with instructions as to how to reach out to their legislators and what to say in the next week.

Thank you for your quick attention to this issue. More to come.

Walt Hartl,
NYSCWA President

NYSCWA Hits Another Homerun 
With 10th Baseball Event

  The New York State Car Wash Association (NYSCWA) hit another homerun on Thursday, June 30, with its annual trip to the ballpark at CitiField in Queens. The annual pilgrimage was attended by 50 and capped off with a visit by Mr. Met (the team’s mascot) and a team victory beating the League leading Chicago Cubs 4-3! “This event is great every year,” said NYSCWA President Walt Hartl. “This year we didn’t have rain, there were no delays and the Mets won so it doesn’t get much better!”

  The event, now in its 10th year, is chaired by NYSCWA Treasurer Mike Benmosche. “This event is a great way to bring your kids to the ballpark in the luxurious Empire Party Suite, and reconnect with fellow operators,” he said. “We’ve been doing this for many years now thanks to the help of Stuart Rosenberg and his connections, and every year it’s a great event.”

  A special thanks to the following event sponsors who help make this a success include: Batting Practice Sponsor Micrologic Associates, Grand Slam Sponsor Innovative Control Systems, Home Run Sponsor Simoniz USA and Triple Play and Ball Park Sponsor ZEP Vehicle Care.
