THIS WEEK’S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log onto the Las Vegas Business Press Web site and let us hear your opinion on this week’s question.
A 24-hour walkout by union workers shut down construction on the CityCenter and Cosmopolitan projects on the Strip last week and led to an agreement by Perini Building Co. to pay for a safety assessment of the work sites and implement on-site training for all construction workers. The general contractor also agreed to give union and safety officials full access to the work sites. The Southern Nevada Building and Construction Trades Council called the walkout after Perini failed to meet a deadline to implement the safety measures following the death of the sixth worker on the CityCenter project since the it began in February 2007.
Do you believe the measures agreed to by the union alliance and Perini go far enough to reduce fatalities and injuries on the Strip work sites?
