Come to our press conference prior to the City Council meeting on Monday to show your support as courageous construction workers call for the passage of policy that would encourage developers to disclose their contractors’ employment practices as part of rezoning petitions.
Charlotte’s construction industry is booming, but a study published last month revealed its dark side - unsafe and precarious work, low wages and wage theft, a lack of access to benefits and workers’ compensation, and the exploitation of unskilled and immigrant labor. Fairly compensated and highly trained unionized building trades people in our community point to the high road not taken, but there are concrete steps City Council can take to get there.
