Members of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades picketed the site of the United Food and Commercial Workers federal credit union being constructed on South Main Street Friday morning.
A large inflatable rat, kept inflated by a gas-powered generator, was set up on the sidewalk near the picketers.
Bob Griffiths, IUPAT union representative, said his union’s labor is not being used for painting, drywall and glass.
“They’re building this building with non-union workers,” Griffiths said. “Our union does business with this credit union. All 260 members have individual accounts here. We run our Vacation Fund for our members through this credit union.”
UFCW Chief Executive Officer John Hayduk could not be reached for comment.
