Rally against wage theft & in support of union construction

September 5, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Rally against wage theft & in support of union construction

Silverbrick Development recently received a tax break from the city of Springfield and then proceeded to hire an out of state general contractor with a track record that includes serious workplace safety violations, wage theft, lawsuits resulting in multiple judgments, and a willingness to use subcontractors who commit insurance fraud. Just recently, a subcontractor working on site at 122 Chestnut Street was ordered by the Massachusetts Department of Industrial Accidents to stop work for not having workers compensation insurance.  Construction is one of the most dangerous professions and workers should be able to count on having a job that follows safety laws and pays its workers properly for hours worked. Developers like Silverbrick, that receive significant tax breaks, should have an even higher bar when it comes to these issues.

 

Springfield should support growth but not growth at all costs. Unhappiness with Silverbrick does not just come from tradesworkers, but it also comes from Springfield residents who live at Silverbrick Square, people who themselves pay their full taxes.  Please join us on Wednesday September 5th at 4pm to say NO to taking tax breaks while workers, tenants & tax payers get shortchanged!!!
