WARSAW — Scabby the Rat is once again making his appearance around the Warsaw area, this time in protest of D&D Electric’s use of MacAllister Machinery Inc. as a subcontractor.
Scabby is a giant, inflatable mascot of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 labor union. While he was not available today, Thursday, May 12, a sign outside D&D Electric, US 30, west of Warsaw, states his case.
Earlier this year, IUOE Local 150 staged a protest outside of MacAllister using “Cheesy,” a smaller, stuffed animal rat affectionately termed, “the son of Scabby.”
Ink Free News also spoke with DJ Kierpaul of D&D Electric, who spoke well of MacAllister.
“MacAllister is an outstanding company to work for on prices, quality of equipment and their service is outstanding,” he said, adding that D&D intends to continue using their services.
