Kennel workers strike, volunteers take over duties

A new union took over the care and feeding of dogs at the municipal kennel yesterday and immediately went on strike for higher wages, showers and safety clothes. Also, they don't think they should have to exercise or feed the dogs.They are assigned to catch the stray dogs, provide veterinary services and clean the cages. They are paid in line with a city's salary for an office cleaner and think they should earn more.
Meanwhile, the Friends of Animals association is doing what it deems morally required of them: stepping in to care for the dogs.
The kennel in Via Tiroasegno and its accompanying stench, barking and howls is right across the street from the rear entrance of Fra Biagio Conte's first homeless mission in Via Archirafi.
