Dan McAweeney of DMC Construction, a company that’s been the focus of intense picketing by the local carpenters union for nearly two years, is calling for an end to the protest.
Since July 2005, Carpenters Union Local 605 has been involved in a picketing campaign against DMC, because DMC pays its employees based on merit and skill, as opposed to a “prevailing wage,” something the union objects to.
“We want it to stop,” said Dan McAweeney, president of DMC Construction Inc. “It’s obnoxious and embarrassing, and it’s gone on long enough.”
The picketers, mostly immigrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries, are not union members and are paid solely to picket.
They are gone. Thankfully.
