    Negotiation, Shmegotiation | Carpenters Union Strikes over Wages - BY TOM LUNDBY, The Portland Mercury, OR
    That's the cue. The carpenters purse their lips against candy-colored noisemakers and, for a moment, there's a crude rhapsody. To bystanders, it would sound like someone pissed off a nest of bees.

    And they'd be absolutely right to think so.

    The strike began on June 1, after discussion of new contract terms broke down between the carpenters' union and the Associated Wall and Ceiling Contractors of Oregon and Southwest Washington, a group that represents drywall contractors across the two regions.
