RatwatchSebastian Sokolowski of Laborers Local 78 stood outside
Red Bank Corporate Plaza with
a large, inflatable rodent on West Front Street for the second day Tuesday.

The union is protesting the hiring of a non-union asbestos abatement contractor on a job in Long Branch by PRC Group, co-developer of the Red Bank office building, according to a union flier.

Sokolowski’s proximity to the rat wasn’t solely a matter of solidarity, he told redbankgreen. “I’ve got to stand on the foot, because it keeps flying away in the wind,” he said.
