After Charlie Price, the porter at the Bay Club for 30 years, filed a racial discrimination and retaliation complaint on May 19, 2010 the New York State Division of Human Rights investigated his allegations and issued a probable cause determination.
The division has since issued several probable cause determinations based on Price's complaints against both the Bay Club and 32BJ, the union.
Documents show that other employees also filed complaints that against the Bay Club with the Human rights division which then issued probable cause determinations.
Witnesses corroborated Price's allegations to investigators at the division, including Stuart R. Palatnick, and Bay Club general manager Eugene Gardner also confirmed that Price complained on several occasions about being referred to in "inappropriate language" documents show.
Yet when contacted for by The Black Star News, Gardner refused to comment.
Gary Brenner denied the allegations with a "not true" comment.
