There apparently is a break in the 116-day-old concrete strike by 330 members of Teamsters Local 174.
An online post by Rick Hicks, Local 174 secretary-treasurer, late Monday directed to some of the sand and gravel companies being struck said: “After much consideration, and on behalf of the bargaining unit we represent and who you employ, which is currently engaged in an unfair labor practice strike against your company, the Union hereby accepts your March 4, 2022, offer to permit our members to return to work ‘at any time’ for the Seattle Location. We designate the beginning of the workday on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, as the time when our members will return to work. To maximize efficiency, please promptly inform our members who are employed by you regarding their work assignments on that day.”
