    Michigan Roofers Strike Over $1 Pay Dispute

    Roofers in Michigan are making headlines with a strike centered around a $1 pay dispute. The union representing the labor on commercial projects demanded a 3.50-an-hour raise in the first year and a 3-dollar raise in the second. However, the Southeastern Michigan Roofing Contractors Association countered with a 3.50-an-hour raise in the first year and a 2-dollar raise in the second. This 1-dollar difference led to the strike.

    • Current Pay: $21/hour
    • Union’s Initial Demand:
      • Year 1: $3.50/hr raise
      • Year 2: $3.00/hr raise
