To the Editor:
Thank you for reporting on the switch to non-union labor at the massive-scale Park West Village construction site, referred to as Columbus Square in your article (“Columbus Sq. Labor Fracas,” Aug. 6). About a week before your article appeared, I sent a letter to the Chetrit Group decrying this latest slight to our community. The developer’s decision is not only short sighted but potentially dangerous. It is disheartening to know that these buildings will not only take away open space and impose untold traffic and noise, but will be financed by forgoing livable wages, local jobs and job site safety. The developer should immediately reverse its decision.
