    Union says workers not being rushed - By ARNOLD M. KNIGHTLY, Las Vegas Review-Journal
    Construction workers are not being hurried at Boyd Gaming Corp.'s Echelon project site, where a carpenter died in an accident Monday, a union official said Tuesday.

    "Everyone is doing everything they can safety-wise," said Marc Furman, senior administrative assistant for the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters.

    He said Boyd officials and contractors on the Echelon project are not pushing workers to meet deadlines as some construction workers have said is happening at other Strip construction projects.

    A worker wearing an Ironworkers Local 433 shirt said Monday after a carpenter was killed at the 87-acre construction site that "they push us hard to meet deadlines."

    However, Furman said, "Nobody is speeding up anything here."

    "People keep looking for some kind of cause and effect. Compared to what is going on at CityCenter, here is a less-complicated project because it is early on, less activity."
