Why would you have a tribute to a serial rapist?

Alleged serial rapist.

On paper, the US justice system still operates under the presumption of innocence until guilt is proven.

It took a sec, apparently because I'm a bit slow today, to realize that the article's trying to say that:

Members of the Northwest Carpenters Union, in a divided vote, authorized a strike against the Association of General Contractors of Washington.

The only reason Microsoft's even mentioned is because that's one of the hundreds of affected work sites involved in an AGC contract with the NCU.

Glaziers make the glass.  Wouldn't the windows installers be the fenestration union?

Glaziers cut and install glass. They do not usually make the glass itself, as far as I know. They're not glass-blowers.

Ok, fine.  The glassmakers make the glass, the glaziers cut the glass and put the glass into the frame to make the window, and the fenestrators install the window.
