Strike shuts several Bellevue projects
July 3, 2008 · Updated 6:27 PM
Several Bellevue construction projects were shut down last week following a strike by members of the fire-sprinkler installers union.
Bellevue projects included The Bravern, Bellevue Towers and City Center Plaza.
A union spokesman said the union struck sprinkler contractors after their contract expired.
Issues in the contract negotiations include the length of a new contract, wages and working conditions.
No new negotiating sessions were scheduled as of the Bellevue Reporter’s deadline Thursday.
