Construction on the 800,000-square-foot transmit hub at the World Trade Center reportedly stopped when concrete workers from local unions went on strike on August 1, 2011 in protest of a contract that expired on June 30, and has yet to be renewed (Getty Images)

Concrete workers also walked off the job at One World Trade Center, with minimal affect so far. Construction continued in other areas of the World Trade Center, though it was unclear how construction could be affected if the strike continues (Getty Images)
