Since joining NELP as the database and office associate in December, 2016, Frank Gattie has been actively engaged in a number of key projects, including streamlining the organization’s databases.
A recent college graduate, Frank comes to NELP with a strong dedication to workers’ rights and issues, with experience organizing with the Fight for $15 campaign and conducting outreach for the Street Vendor Project at the Urban Justice Center.
Frank also previously worked as a waiter while earning a degree in history at CUNY Queens College, where he connected the history of America’s labor movement with his own struggles as a worker in the New York City restaurant industry. Writing on this topic, he won first place in CUNY’s Making Work Visible Labor Arts Contest while he was a student.
Frank is excited to begin his journey at NELP, and to be part of an organization that fights tirelessly for the rights and respect that workers deserve. He is a member of the NELP Staff Association, NOLSW, UAW, LOCAL 2320.
