Pipeliners Union protests Columbia construction site

COLUMBIA, MS (WDAM) - Members of the Pipeliners Union picketed the Kinder Morgan Parkway Pipeline early Monday morning in Columbia.

Around 60 union men converged on the Loutex staging site in Columbia. Grievances voiced were that Loutex, a non-union shop, pays substandard wages with no benefits.

Kinder Morgan and Loutex officials weren't on hand to comment, but say they will comment soon.
