    Talks fail to crack concrete stalemate - By Bibeka Shrestha, The Seattle Times
    About 100 members of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 302 went on strike July 31 against Redmond-based Cadman, Seattle-based Glacier Northwest and Salmon Bay Sand & Gravel, and Renton-based Stoneway Concrete over disagreements about pay raises and the ability of workers to support other strikes.

    Developers, contractors and others in the construction industry are trying to work on tasks that don't require concrete, but some have reached the point where that is no longer possible.
