Martin O’Rourke from the Carpenters Union disputes this claim, saying members were exercising their first amendment right to protest.
Union Carpenters and Teamsters signed a new agreement with the Convention Center today, but Center officials say it’s too late and their employment there will end after tomorrow.
The Carpenters Union has ended a brief strike against the Convention Center and has agreed to a contract extension until May 10th.
After 16 hours, the strike at the Pennsylvania Convention Center is over.
That appointment is noteworthy because tourism industry officials have long privately (and occasionally publicly) blamed the carpenters for customer dissatisfaction at the center.
