The union people you deal with are not in the construction trades.

Brasco, lets see now, you say union workers work with more pride, quality and timewise than their non-union counterparts basing this on your personal experience as an engineer on construction projects. My 38 years working with "union workers" have given me this insight: every Monday morning half of the union workers need to be retrained, and when asked to do a job, it's usually "I'm on my break" or it's not in my classification, or why do you always seem to pick me out for jobs, and as far as doing quality work, most of them don't care one iota, they say they're getting paid whether the product is good or not, and nothing gonna happen to me, that why I pay union due. Yes my "engineer" friend your union workers are NOT what they used to be so spare me your pep talk, why is it most projects today are using NON UNION LABOR, could it only be the lower bids or are people finally catching on to that phony union mentality?

brasco, well put i dont think jonathon knows how much it involves remodeling a school, there are so many new codes in affect today, when you remodel say the electrical you dont know what you are getting into because of others going in to do repairs, you just can not go in and snap your fingers and say it is done, it just doesnt work that way, there is a lot of things that you do not understand and sorry that you are not an understanding worker there is a lot of pride that union workers use

WP, Incompetent would be describing Warren's BoE. They have done such a good job hiring coaches & superintendents and educating after all.

Jonathon, you don't know what your talking about. I've worked as an Engineer on construction projects for over 20 years and I can say that the unioin work is done with much more pride, quality and timewise thatn any of the non-union projects I've been associated with. Please, don't speak what you don't know.

Just curious. Are the construction workers supposed to rush their work so that it can be finished quickly, but the buildings will fall apart in a few years? Does the school board have anything to do with how quickly the work progresses? Do they control the weather that can cause delays in construction? Come on, people. They are building new buildings. It's going to be a little difficult for everyone while they are getting done.

Union workers work "slower" than traditional NON union workers, guess the school should have taken this into consideration then maybe school would have started ON TIME!

It's obvious the Weathersfield school board is incompetent. They have no idea what they are doing.
