There are people protesting CitiCorp in front of the Pike Creek Citi building at Limestone Road and Linden Hill this week.
With all of the press attention on the Occupy Delaware people, I thought they might be part of that group, so I stopped to get a flyer (see attached) and see what was upsetting them. They had an inflatable thing there yesterday but it had an ED problem so I could not see what it was.
Turns out they are not the Occupy people. It would seem that Citi is moving some offices to the Brandywine Building and building out some office space. The protestors are members of the Carpenters Union who are angry because Citi’s general contractor has hired a sub-contractor that pays their carpenters less than “the area standard for wages and benefits.”
I have not seen anything about it in the paper, so I wanted to share this important knowledge with the readers of Resolute Determination.
