Palm Beach County union leaders plan to protest outside the Solid Waste Authority’s headquarter Wednesday to argue that not enough of their members have been hired to build the county’s new $600 million waste-to-energy plant.
The 8 a.m. protest, which union leaders predict will draw more than 400 people, follows a full-page ad in The Palm Beach Post Monday that said 63 of 75 cars in the project’s parking lot had out-of-state plates on Dec. 15 and urged readers to contact county commissioner to tell them to hire local tradesmen. Ironworkers Local 402 and the Green Collar Task Force paid for the ad.
