ACS workers claim they are being overworked in deplorable conditions

Workers at the New York City Administration for Children's Services (ACS) continued to protest on their lunch break Friday. They say the city is forcing them to shove as many cases through the system as possible, neglecting the children and their families. They also say conditions inside the buildings are deplorable including problems with mold and insects. In response, ACS officials issued a statement saying, We are aware of the concerns our staff has raised and are working closely with their union. Union officials, however, say negotiations haven't started. Workers say they will protest until the city starts meeting some of their demands.
