Seattle's construction boom could be on the verge of a big pause as more than a quarter of King County's concrete delivery-truck drivers have gone on strike. With the prime summer season well underway, the rush to move projects forward is paramount but many concrete deliveries have been halted leaving "dozens of projects in jeopardy" according to a statement on concrete supplier, CalPortland's website.
The walkout began Friday morning. According to reports, three hundred teamsters have been working without a contract since the beginning of August. The walkout could cause "untold financial damages" since the trucks are filled with perishable concrete, potentially damaging trucks if the concrete isn't moved in a timely manner.
With 74 major construction projects in Seattle alone, we'llbe watching for a (hopefully quick) resolution.
