Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation (NDC) Statement Related To Job Equity/Access, Living Wage And Worker Standards.
Codman Square NDC is committed to job equity, working with others to employ community members in all aspects of the work we do, and to insure fair access to jobs for community members. We also seek to insure that all workers are treated fairly and equitably in all aspects of our operations, from our internally controlled hiring, to expectations of others acting on our behalf as service contractors.
To that end, Codman Square has:
In regard to Codman Square NDC’s Whittier Lyndhurst Washington (WLW) affordable housing development, currently under construction, we are pleased this project will provide 44 units of housing that will be affordable to people earning 30%-60% of the area median income. This project, slated to be completed by the end of 2016, will help stabilize people in place.
Fully 1/3 of the WLW development is a union-contracted job, using union labor. We also have over 90% minority labor deployed at two sites. Codman Square NDC has agreements with WLW general contractors (GCs) to monitor compliance of all subcontractors to the labor standards expected. In cases where contractor and subcontractor labor standard questions arise, Codman Square NDC receives weekly worker compliance reports from our GCs and closely monitors those reports to insure compliance.
Any questions related to this statement should be directed to Gail Latimore, Executive Director, Codman Square NDC at 617-825-4224 x132.
