Here are the road projects affected by lockout

Major roadwork projects across the state have been stopped or slowed down because of a contract dispute between Local 324 Operating Engineers and the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association.

In a press release, MITA said that they have tried to negotiate with the Local 324 and they have refused.

MITA said because of that they will, “stand together as a unified front against these coercive actions by the union and the union’s refusal to negotiate and has initiated a defensive lockout of all OE 324 employees."
