Protest held over lack of available jobs at Atlantic Yards Project

BROOKLYN - Protesters gathered at the Atlantic Yards construction project in Downtown Brooklyn today, claiming the developer, Forest City Ratner, is failing to live up to the Community Benefits Agreement (CBA).

The CBA requires that the developer hire many local non-union workers on the construction project.

Forest City Ratner says it is complying with the agreement, hiring 166 locals in various positions.

Protesters say that is not enough considering the size of the project.
