Judge Orders Striking Workers Back to NYC Projects

July 8, 2015



Work resumed at New York City construction sites after a federal judge ordered members of the New York City District Council of Carpenters back to work, ending a three-day strike, reports Crain’s New York.

Work stopped for three days at NYC construction sites when workers belonging to the council went on strike after collective bargaining negotations failed between union workers and the Cement League, a trade organization composed of independent contractors.

Crain’s reports Judge Edgardo Ramos agreed with the League, and “prohibited the carpenters from striking on all jobs governed by a project-labor agreement.”
