St. Regis Mohawk Tribe questions union's hiring practices

The St. Regis Mohawk Tribe says its members aren't being hired for jobs at a Superfund remediation project because they don't belong to a union.

As part of a settlement with the federal government and the tribe, General Motors agreed to clean up the Powertrain plant in Massena. But tribal members who don't belong to the Laborers International Union Local 322 weren't offered employment.

The Environmental Protection Agency said no new hires for the project are expected any time soon.
