“Katie Cristol is a dedicated public servant who is committed to enacting policies that benefit working people,” said David Allison, Business Manager of the BWLDC. “Katie understands the importance of collective bargaining and the value of unions in the workplace. Katie is our advocate, and we can always count on her to be in our corner.”

Board Member Cristol walked the picket line with LIUNA members several times during her first term in office, demonstrating her strong commitment to worker protections and the right to organize. She showed her support at actions on behalf of groundskeepers at Arlington Cemetery and Didlake custodians at the Arlington National Guard facility.
