Union dispute delays tunnel project

Waste of time and money

Do you really think the taxpaying public really cares who moves the dirt? [“Tunnel work grinds to a halt over union dispute,” page one, Sept. 7.]

Holding up a project of this magnitude and cost for eight jobs is absolutely ludicrous. In the meantime, there are 250 construction workers twiddling their thumbs, waiting for someone to get off the dime.

Come on, project manager — get Bertha moving! Go with those you hired to do the work, and let the other group pout and picket.
