Pickets halt work on Ravens stadium

December 06, 1997

Union representatives set up picket lines and stopped work temporarily yesterday on construction of the Baltimore Ravens stadium complex in downtown Baltimore.

Representatives of the AFL-CIO picketed the stadium site yesterday morning to protest the hiring of nonunion workers to complete the project, according to Edward E. Cline, deputy director of the Maryland Stadium Authority.

Kline said that union workers arriving for work refused to cross the picket lines and that work ground to a halt for at least a few hours.

He said that union officials ended the demonstration and left the site about 11 a.m. after stadium authority representatives explained the contract terms.

Construction work was progressing at the site last night.
