Do­min­ion in­ves­ti­gat­ing Cove Point noose in­ci­dent

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND NATION -

North Amer­ica’s Build­ing Trades Unions are of­fer­ing a $100,000 re­ward to any­one with in­for­ma­tion about an in­ci­dent in­volv­ing a noose at the Do­min­ion Cove Point LNG project site. Union and com­pany of­fi­cials de­clined to of­fer de­tails about the in­ci­dent. Do­min­ion and IHI-Kiewit, the joint ven­ture be­tween con­struc­tion con­trac­tors IHI E&C and Kiewit En­ergy Corp. tapped to ex­pand the liq­ue­fied nat­u­ral gas site near Lusby, con­demned the in­ci­dent and said in a state­ment they are in­ves­ti­gat­ing it. “It is the pol­icy of both Do­min­ion and IHI-Kiewit that ha­rass­ment in any form is un­ac­cept­able,” the com­pa­nies said in the state­ment. In a Nov. 8 let­ter to Kiewit, copied to Do­min­ion and oth­ers, North Amer­ica’s Build­ing Trades Unions Pres­i­dent Sean McGar­vey de­scribed the in­ci­dent as “dis­turb­ing and un­ac­cept­able.” He also called on Do­min­ion and its con­trac­tors to find the per­son re­spon­si­ble. The union was un­avail­able for ad­di­tional com­ment. Do­min­ion said it can­not share de­tails about in­ves­ti­ga­tions.
