St. Regis Mohawk Tribe questions union's hiring practices
Posted: Friday, May 27, 2011
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,
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.
Environmental Protection Agency
said no new hires for the project are expected any time soon.
