    I remember the old Hardware store near to the convention center.
    And the old saying about the union workers in the convention center.
    Anybody need a hammer?
    $100 to use the hammer.
    The people with displays at the convention center would quietly buy stuff at
    the hardware store to avoid the big rip off union.
    Ashame we are losing valuable Convention business due to RICO Unions.

    Union carpenters, Convention Center still, still, still battling in Philly, Harrisburg | Philly.com

    At the Convention Center on Monday, more than 6,000 cell biologists and life scientists from the American Society for Cell Biology and the European Molecular Biology Organization will focus on connections between cell biology and neurobiology.

    Nearby, at the federal courthouse, there will be another gathering — of lawyers representing the Convention Center and the union carpenters who used to be the center’s main labor force. The courthouse discussion will focus on a lawsuit over whether the union engaged in racketeering after it lost work at the center in May 2014.

    Meanwhile, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board hearing examiner Jack E. Marino has set Monday as the due date for briefs from the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (formerly the Metropolitan Regional Council) on whether the Convention Center committed an unfair labor practice when it ousted the union after its leaders didn’t immediately sign a new customer-service agreement.

    The leaders signed a few days later, but by then the traditional work had been divided among other unions.
