Teamsters Joint Council 16 has called for Diana Taylor, the mayor's partner and a member of the board of directors at Sotheby's, to resign as chair of the Hudson River Park Trust over her comments to Sotheby's art handlers at an HRPT meeting.
She told them, in front of an audience, "I have had one conversation with [Sotheby's CEO] Bill Ruprecht about this, and I told him that if he accedes to any of your demands, I will resign from the board."
If Taylor does not step down as chair of HRPT, the Joint Council has called on Gov. Cuomo to remove her from that position as she serves only at his pleasure.
