Concrete Workers Strike in NW DC(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Striking construction workers temporarily shut down Military Road in upper Northwest Washington Wednesday morning in a dispute with Baker Concrete over wages and benefits. The members of CWU Local 202 – part of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Office of the Laborers – and allies including DC Jobs with Justice charge that “workers are not sharing in the construction boom” in DC. “Construction companies like Baker treat workers as disposable,” tweeted JWJ. “You get hurt? Replaced. Demand higher wages? Replaced. We need a new model.” Click here for a short video of the strike action
