The carpenters' strike at St. Joe's Hospital continues. They are also striking several other construction sites around Bellingham. The dispute is over the construction industry association reducing their health benefits over the past couple years. Actually, playing games with the health benefits. Nothing in the Herald since the original article a few days ago.

The state L&I is continuing to investigate St. Joe's Hospital's release of toxic gas into the construction area for over a year. This morning, KGMI had a good report on the toxic gas release, a story NwCitizen broke on May 19 (see below). The Bellingham Herald has still not reported this. Nothing in that supposedly alternative weekly either. A tip of the hat to KGMI for reporting this.
