BRONX - Construction workers held a rally Wednesday to protest a site where they say non-union workers are being used.

The union workers say that the company running the site, Knickerbocker Construction Co., is known to have a history of unsafe work environments. They also say the company underpays its workers.

Workers representing Teamsters Union Local 282 and Local 79 marched from Yankee Stadium to 163rd Street and Washington Avenue.

Efforts by News 12 The Bronx to reach Knickerbocker Construction Co. have so far been unsuccessful.
