NYC Concrete Truck Drivers Strike Brings Construction To A Near Halt – 07/03/08
By Doug Cunningham
Wages and working conditions are at the heart of the trucker’s strike by Teamsters Local 282. The strike by 400 cement truckers has shut down most of the city’s major construction projects. The new Yankees and Mets stadiums are among the affected projects. Further talks on the contract aren’t expected until next week.
