IRVINGTON - Subcontractors from a local company protested in front of the owner's home in Irvington Friday to demand better wages.
The employees work for San Mateo Construction, who subcontracts traffic flaggers to Con Edison. The workers say they are treated unfairly, making low wages with no raises. The employees are demanding better wages and employee benefits so they can make a living and support their families.
San Mateo's owner says this is an issue between the workers and Con Edison and there will be no raises until a new contract is negotiated. Con Edison told News 12 that this is an issue between the workers of San Mateo and the owner of the company, and it has no further comment.
Workers have been on strike for three days and say they have no plans to stop picketing if San Mateo will not increase pay.
