1. Here is the answer to the question - these are Bush supporters!
Menino suggested the union, which endorsed Republican Vice President George H.W. Bush over then-Massachusetts Governor Michael S. Dukakis, a Democrat, in 1988, had political reasons for picketing and disrupting the convention now that the contract was solved.

``The question I keep asking is what is the other agenda, if they continue to picket?'' Menino said.

Looks like they are supporters of the Bush family.
