POLICE MOVE IN ON RUCKUS AT CONCRETE PLANT, ARREST 1

Police officers from four precincts were called this morning to control an unexplained disturbance at a Bailey Avenue concrete company that has been the scene of a three-week-old strike, police said.

It was not known what caused the ruckus at Pine Hill Concrete Mix Corp., 2255 Bailey. But police said cars from the Broadway, Fillmore, Southside and Kensington stations responded.

Police said one man, Carmen Gaglia, 33, of 628 72nd St., Niagara Falls, was arrested for allegedly punching a Broadway Station police officer.

Gaglia was charged with second-degree assault, fourth-degree criminal mischief, inciting to riot, second-degree riot, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstruction of governmental administration.

Sixty-nine truck drivers who are members of Local 449 of the Teamsters Union have been on strike since June 1.

They have warned they would confront any replacement drivers hired by the company to take their place.
