Renee Campion is the first woman ever to lead the Mayor’s Office of Labor Relations
Mayor Bill de Blasio appointed Renee Campion as Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Labor Relations. She will assume the position on February 15 and will be the first women ever to lead the office. Campion will be responsible for negotiating labor agreements with 150 bargaining units representing over 360,000 City workers.
“I can’t think of anyone better to take the helm at the Office of Labor Relations than Renee Campion. From her time representing medical doctors and dentists to her 17-year tenure at the Office of Labor Relations, Renee brings a wealth of experience to the negotiating table,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “Her deep understanding of labor relations and maintaining a respectful dynamic will help us negotiate additional agreements that are fair to workers and New York City taxpayers. I’m also confident that Renee will build on the success of the last five years and bring a new and important perspective to the office.”
“I’m honored to be leading the Office of Labor Relations and look forward to expanding the great work we’ve done these last five years. As a City worker and New Yorker, a key focus of my work will be to continue balancing the needs of New York City taxpayers, the City and the entire City workforce all while maintaining a respectful dynamic. I’d like to thank Mayor de Blasio for appointing me to this role which I truly consider the pinnacle moment of my career. I also want to thank Bob Linn for his unwavering support and setting such a high standard at the Office of Labor Relations,” said Renee Campion, incoming Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Labor Relations.
“I am so happy to be able to pass the torch to Renee. She has been the quintessential First Deputy enthusiastically leading the Office of Labor Relations team on all our endeavors. Together we have set a high bar for NYC labor relations and everyone is fortunate that Renee will lead the office into the future,” said Robert Linn, Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Labor Relations.
Renee Campion has served at the Mayor’s Office of Labor Relations for 17 years, first serving as Assistant Commissioner, Associate Commissioner, an Advisor to the Commissioner and, most recently, as First Deputy Commissioner.
