    Youngsters send message against union-busting Workday Minnesota
    They wore signs, tied on sandwich-board style, that read, “Union-busting attorneys Seaton Beck Peters Bowen & Feuss are trying to take away my dad’s benefits.”

    The Edina law firm represents JT Electric Service, Inc., an Albany, Minn., contractor that is trying to back out as a signatory with Local 292, organizer Robbie Crofoot said. The contract with JT Electric went into effect May 1, but the company is refusing to pay into the health insurance, pension and other benefit plans, he said.
