There seems to be either few misinformed and misguided carpenters, or carpenters who are intentionally trying to confuse what is happening around the country to the benefit of Doug McCarron and the UBC leadership. Either way, I am not going to participate in frivolous dialogue with disgruntle rank and file carpenters who want to complain, but never have solutions or who keep turning on those that attempt to assist them. If they do not want help, then that is their choice, but please do not keep tearing down those who are going a different route and are having some success. That is unless you are doing this intentionally to benefit Doug McCarron and you do not care about any true grass roots movement within the UBC to pursue true local democratic unions.
There are so many different labor laws and contract laws involved in the collective
bargaining process that there is no easy way to change the top leadership of the UBC through the democratic process or to start a new union. There are professional organizers and labor attorneys with many years of experience that cannot always agree on the best course of action; however, any assistance given to any group has come at their request. So far, the campaigns that have not been successful are those that had individual’s egos become bigger than the movement, or there was not enough support from the rank and file carpenters involved for whatever reason.
I have attached several copies of charges filed against the UCB and correspondence in the name of rank and file members from attorney Richard Furlong of the law offices Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria, LLC. These were provided at no expense to the members.
There is more going on throughout the country than what is showing up on the different blogs and websites. Respect Our Crafts and the Affiliates of the BCTD, AFL-CIO are assisting those carpenters who asked for help and want to help themselves.
McCarron started this fight over 10 years ago. The other union trades and the rank and file carpenters are now starting to fight back. Do not be fooled by the rhetoric. Actions
speak louder than words.
WHATS THE MATTER CAN'T TYPE THE WORDS OUT. IT'S AFL-CIO, AND IT STAND FOR MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT DOUG MCCARON IS DOING. DUANE MOORE WAS THE MAIN DRIVER IN HELPING CARPENTERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY TRY TO FREE THEMSELVES FROM DOUG MCCARONS DICTATORSHIP.
