Union protestors stand silent at Findlay High School

Posted: Updated:
FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A group of union-backed protestors reappeared in Findlay Wednesday, this time, in front of the construction site at the high school.

It's part of a labor dispute that's been going on for awhile. Protestors stood silently in front of the high school for hours holding a banner calling ‘shame on the school.' The protestors refused to speak, but handed out fliers explaining their cause.

Their target appears to be Five Angle Construction, a company hired for roof work at the school.

The flier read, in part:

"Five Angle Construction does not pay its employees Findlay's area standard wages, fringe benefits and economic conditions…Five Angle Construction and/or Findlay City Schools is acting out of greed."

The protestors are hired by the Indiana-Kentucky-Ohio Council of Carpenters, and take their sign everywhere. Last year, they protested at the University of Findlay.

Jeff Schroeder from Five Angle Construction says none of the protestors work for his company. He said his is one of several companies getting backlash from the labor union for not hiring unionized workers.

Representatives from Findlay City Schools could not be reached for comment.
