Black Fights for Job on Stadium
More details on the strike over the employment of Jesse Oliver on the Veterans Stadium project in Philly. He's the father of five, and, ironically, a veteran. This appears to be a dispute over control of hiring; the union is retaliating against the contractor, Westinghouse Corporation Elevator Division, for not hiring its men, by refusing to issue a permit for Oliver. In the meantime, pending a DOL resolution under the RPP, Westinghouse has hired Oliver as an office worker.
