Atlantic Yards Project in Brooklyn Threatened by Strike

A work stoppage by operating engineers could stop construction on major projects worth nearly $10 billion and idle more than 11,300 workers, according to Crain's NY.

Projects that could be halted include Forest City Ratner's Barclays Center (Atlantic Yards) in Brooklyn, which employs 1,000 construction workers, says Crain's, including crane operators. Builders are stockpiling materials on upper floors.

The contract deadline is a week away. More here.
