Members in Action!

Picket Action:

Organizers Representatives and Members participated in a very effective Picket Action against non-union paint company, Canterbury Painting. This company was paying under area standard wages to their employees on a project where almost all other crafts were signatory. NO ONE crossed the picket line and we effectively shut the project down. After conversations between our organizers, we got written confirmation that Canterbury was to be removed from the project and the remainder of the work was to be put out to bid to UNION CONTRACTORS ONLY.
