Warner Brothers Construction (non striking) crew on Triangle Street 11:30 AM
BREAKING NEWS: Strike has been settled. Machine operators will be back on the job tomorrow morning. (An early Christmas present).
"Work" resumed on the town's Triangle Street road project, albeit s-l-o-w-l-y as the International Union of Operating Engineers Local Union 98 are still on strike, and they are pretty much the skilled heavy equipment operators.

Thus Warner Bros is trying to finish this job using less than optimal work procedures . For instance using a non-union job foreman, in this case John Baronas, to run the roller.

Mr Baronas was not overly happy about having his picture taken, as he came over to me and said somewhat sternly, "If any of my men come to harm, I will hold you personally responsible."
I of course pointed out the Amherst police officer within spitting distance of the work site. And that we are standing on a public street and he is using public tax money to
break a union, um, complete the project.
