Work resumed at the Hudson Yards project and other construction sites around the city Monday, after a federal judge ordered New York City Distrcit Council of Carpenters members to end their three-day strike.

The strike began last week after a breakdown in collective bargaining negotiations between the cement workers’ union and the Cement League, a contractor trade group whose members hire union workers.

The work stoppage affected nearly 30 sites citywide, including Related Cos.’ Hudson Yards development and Time Equities’ 50 West Street condo project.

But Judge Edgardo Ramos ordered the carpenters back to work July 4 – ruling in favor of the contractors, who had pointed to “project-labor” agreements at many of the job sites that legally prohibit strikes, according to Crain’s.

The carpenters’ union criticized the court decision, with executive secretary and treasurer Joseph Geiger labeling it “superfluous.” [Crain’s]Rey Mashayekhi
