During a September 14 rally in Buffalo, union representatives cut up a 15-foot-tall rat balloon to symbolize that their organizations were ready for a more "business-friendly approach," says Michael McNally, business manager for Local 22 of the Plumbers and Steam-fitters Union. The unions are going to use marketing and face-to-face meetings with contractors as part of their new strategy, McNally says. It remains to be seen whether the unions in western New York will make headway with their new tactic, but it's worth a shot, says David Gregory a professor of law at St. John's University in Queens, NY.
