Bruski: Labor agreement between Sacramento and Kings another sign downtown arena moving forward
Bruski: Labor agreement between Sacramento and Kings another sign downtown arena moving forward

It may be fun for opponents to poke holes in the labor agreement reached between Mayor Kevin Johnson, the Kings and the Sacramento-Sierra Building and Construction Trades Council, which calls for most of the construction and labor jobs for the downtown arena to be filled by union workers, and it may be good for ratings to tell you that groups opposed to the agreement could join with STOP (Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork) to try and derail the arena project.

It’s just a waste of time.  One could almost hear faint undertones of that when Johnson told observers at today’s press conference that “fringe groups” would not “rain on this parade.”
