Working at the Trade While We are on STRIKE It is a sad day when we need to report that two of our members have been caught working for a non-union contractor installing duct work on an ICI site during the strike. At the very same site, one of our siders was also found doing bargaining unit work. Doing bargaining unit work during a strike is a betrayal of the brothers and sisters who are fighting in solidarity for the betterment of all. We want to remind members that this misconduct is NOT ACCEPTABLE and that it is a violation of our Constitution (refer to the posting below).
