Commercial Construction workers to boycott NY mosque

Some union commercial construction workers say they will refuse to help build an Islamic mosque and cultural centre planned for Lower Manhattan.

One a website for the building trades, a blog has started what is called the 9-11 Hard Hat Pledge, encouraging union and non-union tradesmen to refuse work at the site near Ground Zero. The mosque would be two blocks from Ground Zero.

The planned 13-story construction project has exploded into a national debate after President Barack Obama recently appeared to offer support for the project.

Some construction workers say, politics and personal feelings aside, jobs are hard to come by and some of them just can’t afford to turn down work.

The Building Trades Employers’ Association has not yet taken a formal position on the project or a potential boycott by union workers.

Military Construction Regulations

Military construction requires a vast knowledge of regulations and guidelines, much more than typical commercial construction. Having worked on numerous military bases and facilities, we provide the experience needed to avoid potential issues and obstacles.

Construction is much more than erecting buildings and structures, it is understanding the needs and regulations of your client. Military projects and scrutinized not once but twice, meeting local, state and federal code and the high standards of the military.

Professionalism through experience, that’s West Constructors!
