They said at the last 157 mtg that close to 300 left. This is either members who couldn't or wouldn't pay their dues. This could be for the past quarter so dont shoot me if its the quarter and not the month. Either way we're not flourishing & not a good sign. This is for 157 & doesn't include the other locals. The figure is probably higher. If the dockbuilders go the numbers will also rise. Way to go scumbag unity team.
Have you considered the possibility that they are out of work and cant afford to pay dues? Perhaps we need to go after work that is in our jurisdiction but too small to be considered worth the bother by our organizers. How much does someone really care if they're well paid and others aren't?
It's because the carpenters lost 40%--50% of the Market Share of work. Keep up the great work you organizers and BA's phoneys. Further--McCarroons system don't work. Fire all the stiffs & flunkies
and go back to the old systems of elected Business Agents who are accoutable to the membership.
