Local 40 ironworkers protest non-union job in Yonkers
Members of the ironworkers union Local 40 are calling a non-union job on Central Avenue unsafe.
Local 40 ironworkers are demonstrating outside a construction site at 2000 Central Avenue because it is a non-union job. They say the job is unsafe and it's only a matter of time before someone gets hurt.
According to the protesters, the non-union workers being used for the project are not properly trained. They claim there are a number of safety violations at the job site, and say there has already been an accident.
The construction site is owned by a Honda dealership that's just a few doors down. The dealership's management says the contractor has assured them that all safety issues have been taken care of.
Construction of the Honda dealership's new showroom is expected to be completed by the spring.
The union members say they will continue to protest at the job site.
