Carpenter’s Union strike nearly over?

• In Business,

The Associated General Contractors and the Carpenter’s Union will meet tomorrow morning to try and settle the health benefits dispute and end the strike, which has stopped major construction projects all over Puget Sound. Several projects in Whatcom County are stopped.

The Herald has told you nada about this over the past week, so I am reporting it here. This has had a serious impact on our summer construction season. We all hope they can end the strike. The Carpenters are striking to prevent decreases in their health benefits, and are not seeking any increases in wages.
