On March 15th, seven people were killed on 51st St. east of Second Avenue when construction workers were “jumping” – installing steel bracing so additional section could be added – the crane, and a six-ton steel collar broke loose, fell, and knocked out some lower braces. A Buildings crane inspector has since been arrested after he lied about inspecting the crane the day before the accident.
Local 14 of the International Union of Operating Engineers, which represents crane operators, is strongly opposed to the new changes.
