Electricians picket outside of Peru Mall

Posted by wlpo on August 12, 2009

Shoppers coming and going at the Peru Mall are being greeted by electricians upset over the use of out-of-town workers.
About 14 electricians with IEBW Local 176 began picketing the Peru Mall entrances Tuesday morning.
Jim Conness is with the Local 176. He says they’re upset because the money and jobs aren’t being kept local.
Mall management released a statement Tuesday saying they work with many area contractors that have union shops and that they provide tenants who need services a list of union contractors.
