Canine Construction Workers’ Union Chides Layoffs
In a memo released today, the Canine Construction Workers’ Union of America (Local 47) repudiated The Sizemore Group for what it calls “penny-pinching layoffs.”
The real estate developer contracted union dogs to lay cement for five new housing complexes. After only two foundations were complete, the company let go of half the contractors, citing “unnecessary labor.”
The union says Sizemore is running the workers ragged, expecting the same results and speed from half the team.
"The work will end up being shoddy" says Jim Rockland, a union representative. "I wouldn’t want to live in a shoddy house, and I don’t expect Sizemore’s clients to either."
