They have a whole lot nothing on thier website. They don't address any of the most important issues that would be detrimental to the starting and survival of a new union. I cannot vote yes in good faith just because I hate McCarron without answers to these questions UPFRONT.... Pensions? 401Ks? Lifetime Medical For Retirees? Medical Plan? AnnuityPlan? Vacation Plan? Job Security? Political Action? Training Center for Journeymen and Apprentices? Wages/Collective Bargaining Agreement? What about dues and assesments to fund and operate the new Union? What about affiliations with the Building Trades, AFL-CIO and IUPAT? I AM VOTING NO IF THIER IS NO LONG TERM VISION FOR THIS NEW UNION. AT LEAST NOW I KNOW MY FAMILIES FUTURE. WE NEED ANSWERS BEFORE THE VOTE OR AMALGAMATED WILL LOSE. http://democracyfordockbuilders.com/ This website is filled with Propaganda and Lies but Lacks Answers, Facts and most of all the Truth
NO ANSWERS==NO VOTE
WHEN READING THE REPLIES TO THIS POST TAKE NOTICE THE AMALGALIARS WILL NOT DIRECTLY ANSWER ANY OF THE QUESTIONS I POSED TO THEM........THEY WILL REPLY WITH HATRED, PROPAGANDA AND LIES ! ! !
DEMAND ANSWERS--------DEMAND FACTS-------DEMAND TRUTH
How can you expect members to believe anything on that site? Not 1 committee members name posted on it. An unsigned affiliation agreement between the painters and amalgamated. Campaign promises and propaganda posted by cyber ghosts. How dumb do you think we are? No signatures = No sale!
You better believe in the Amalgamated Dockbuilders or you will be stuck with McCarron. The NYCDC will be disolved just like 1456. Come on guys WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE. The Carpenters should follow the Dockbuilders otherwise McCarronism will spell your death. You can't trust McCarron, here's why. HIS plan was to hire Walsh and his kangeroo court to eliminate and merge locals. He also hired Conboy to help destroy the council. He had Frank Spenser hire the Retired NJ State Police Officer who is the manageing director of the NYCDC. He was hired because they said he was a specialist in getting Consent Decrees removed. Can't you see the writing on the wall??????? With ONE STROKE of the MIGHTY McCARRON PEN THE NYCDC DISAPPEARS. He dissolves all the locals and forms 3 new ones (395A Construction Carpenters, 395B Specialty locals Rugs, Millrwights, Timbermen; 395C Shop locals). After he appoints Officers, etc. in the new locals he then tells them that they are now proud members of the NORTHEAST REGIONAL COUNCIL. All your money (billions) will be transferred to the NRC (Northeast Regional Council) their funds aren't doing to well. McCarron and the NRC lost millions of pension dollars with the Bernie Madoff fraud. You will be in the NRC pension fund and medical program. This will all happen after Walsh leaves and the NJ State Trooper gets rid of the Consent Decree. He will also transfer the 395 Hudson street building to the NRC, and they will rent out the 9th and 10th floors as there will be no benefit fund employees (Fund was transferred to NRC). The three 395ABC will have to rent offices.
I mean no disrespect here but why don't you guys answer the above posts by some concerned members? They seem like serious questions that need to be addressed if you expect to win not only the dockbuilders votes but the carpenters as well.
