    3 lab rats sent out to play at restaurant - The Boston Globe
    "I'm all for the union's right to organize, but that is not a tactic that is going to earn them support anywhere,'"said Councilor Michael P. Ross of Beacon Hill, who dines occasionally at The Capital Grille. ". . . That goes too far. That's criminal and inexcusable."

    Rand Wilson, a veteran union organizer, said the action might have crossed the line, but added that the message Antonellis was trying to send was the right one. He said rats symbolize nonunion contractors who do not provide fair pay and benefits.
