According to a Seattle Times report, about 500 union fire-sprinkler installers have gone on strike in the Seattle area. This has affected a few Downtown Bellevue projects including The Bravern, Bellevue Towers, and City Center Plaza.
Local fire-sprinkler contractors have been striking since Tuesday, when their contracts expired. Prior to the strike, bargaining had been going on for about a month to reach a contract.
Currently no negotiations are scheduled, but those close to the matter are hoping for a resolution next week.
