Local union workers now using child labor?

Here's a great letter from the Daily Herald:

While I have walked past the carpenters union's "Shame on BYU" sign every day for the past three months, it hasn't bothered me until recently. This is a free country and everyone is entitled to their say.

However, several times in the past two weeks, there have been small children out holding up this sign. One day there were no adults there, just children...

What type of a message is the union wishing to send? That they believe in child abuse, forcing small children to stand out in the sub-freezing temperatures to hold up their sign just so the parents can collect a pay check?

Does anyone know what that little dispute of theirs is all about, anyway?
