Construction watch – a yellow rat on Clark Street

Members of Chicago Laborers Union Local 6 were out picketing the site of the new Stout Barrel House & Galley at Clark and Erie in River North yesterday afternoon. They reported that Aberdeen Construction, the contractor for the new “chef-driven American comfort food spot,” was using non-union labor in violation of its agreements.

According to a Local 6 member, between 20 and 30 non-union workers are employed on the site at a time when hundreds of Local 6 members are out of work.

I found the yellow rat a refreshing change from the gray variety I typically encounter.
