The circus comes to town, and brings a labor dispute along with it.

The Canadian-based Cavalia horse show provoked action by local 107 of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees when it went to non-union temp agencies to supplement its in-house crew.

Cavalia's big tent and 30 show horses are located on the North Basin Strip just south of Gilman, on property now owned by East Bay Regional Park District and slated for development as waterfront playing fields.
