On Aug. 21, the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 302 went on strike against the Associated General Contractors of Washington. The strike is ongoing and is affecting Seattle Children’s construction sites. This will impact the dates of some tasks listed in previous Construction Blog posts, such as the new driveway to 40th Avenue at the hospital. Once the strike is over, work on the delayed tasks will resume as soon as possible, and we will post updates on the blog once new work dates are defined. In the meantime, work that does not rely on members of Local 302 is continuing. Stay tuned to the Construction Blog for details.
