Buffalo Open For Business: The IUOE, Local 17
We're all adjusting to the new normal--working from home, moving to digital platforms, providing goods and services on a virtual or delivery basis. That change has been especially difficult for many of Buffalo's businesses, but in true WNY spirit, Buffalo has remained open for business.
In that light, we wanted to shine a light on how some of our WNY community business leaders are doing to keep Buffalo working. Each of them brings their own unique insight on what challenges their industry is facing during the era of social distancing. Each day Clay Moden and Dave Fields will speak with a different business leader to get a boots-on-the-ground look at how Buffalo is reopening following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today Clay Moden spoke with Gary Swain of the International Union of Operating Engineers (Local 17) on how they're moving forward now that WNY is in reopening mode.
