Strike Worsens for Arrowhead construction. Feds might get involved

The Builders Association wants federal mediators to step in and solve the cement masons strike.The strike shut down all work at the Truman Sports Complex and some other large projects on Friday.

Yeah, let's get Congress involved too. We all know how brilliantly they're handling the bailouts.
The Builders Association has asked for a federal mediator to get involved in the strike.But at this point, there is no response from the cement union on whether they want to do that.
Course not. Drag it out.
Meanwhile, the union on Friday made good on its threat to go on "full strike."
Yeah, no shit. "Threat" is the right word.
The Builders Association said they're offering the cement union a wage increase and a conventional pension plan, as opposed to a 401(k) and health care. Union members said they want more money and a four-year deal, among other things.
And I want a friggin job guarantee as well.

Friggin brilliant. As though the Feds aren't already knee deep in putting their fingers and toes in  the financial crisis, now they're trying to get them involved. I have a gut feeling this strike is going to last longer than anticipated.

I'm starting to get a little irritated with the way this is getting handled. Specifically with the cities part in not putting a "no-strike" clause in the contract negotiations in the first place.
