Attention: Philadelphia area union brothers, sisters, activist organizations and supporters,
Currently member unions of the Philadelphia Building Trades Council are picketing the job sites located at 12th & Woods Streets as well as Rittenhouse Street & Wissahickon Avenue in Philadelphia, PA. There are currently non-union workers working on both job sites as independent contractors. The developer/general contractor on both job sites is Post Goldtex GP, LLC.
The purpose of our protest is to protect the wages and benefits of the highly skilled men and women of the union construction industry throughout Philadelphia and vicinity. Make no mistake about this -- if not resolved, the outcome of this serious situation could negatively impact the FUTURE of the entire union construction industry throughout the Philadelphia area.
TAKE ACTION: PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION THEN FORWARD IT to interested union brothers, sisters and supporters.
SEND A MESSAGE TO Alan Butkovitz, City Controller; City Council President Darrell L. Clarke; Keith Richardson - Commissioner, Department of Revenue; and Fran Burns - Commissioner, Department of Licensing and Inspections that in the interest of protecting the wages and benefits of the highly skilled men and women of the union construction industry throughout Philadelphia and vicinity, we respectfully request that they confirm that Post Goldtex, GP, LLC, in their capacity as the "General Contractor" on the above-mentioned construction sites, is operating in compliance with all applicable Philadelphia ordinances as is required of all contractors in our city.
