BOSTON (CBS) – Boston construction companies, developers and trade unions are trying to build something that’s been elusive up until now: concessions over job rules and pay.

A number of developers are pushing construction companies to push down costs so several stalled mega-projects can get back on track.

Suffolk Construction CEO John Fish says he’s negotiating with trades unions.

    Why does John Fish think he needs to negotiate with trades unions? Does he and other companies realize there are a lot of great companies out there that are not union, charge less and do great work? It’s about time thinking changed to the fact that just because you’re not union, you’re not good. Non-union workers have a lot more invested in their own companies than unions because the unions protect them! Proud to be non-union!
