NYCDCC'S LETTER IS PURE LIES

DISSIDENT
THE NYDCC OR ANYONE IN THE UBC CANNOT GET YOU THROWN OFF ANY JOB FOR NOT PAYING YOUR DUES OR ASSESMENTS. ANY EMPLOYEE OF THE NYCDCC OR ANY STEWARD THAT REMOVES YOU FROM THE JOBSITE OR ANY CONTRACTOR THAT COLLUDES TO DO THIS WILL BE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE. ANYONE WHO LOSES THEIR JOB DUE TO NON-PAYMENT OF DUES AND ASSESMENTS GO TO YOUR REGIONAL NLRB OFFICE AND FILE A CHARGE AGAINST THE UBC AND ALL PARTIES INVOLVED. THE CHARGE WILL BE 8(b)(1)(A). YOU HAVE FEDERAL RIGHTS. DON'T LET THE UBC SCREW YOU OVER. FILE THOSE CHARGES IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT PAY THE DUES OR ASSESMENTS. LET THE UBC STARVE AS THEY HAVE STARVED THE MEMBERSHIP OF THEIR DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS TO A VOICE AND A VOTE, TO HAVE A SAY IN THE DIRECTION OF THEIR LIVELYHOOD. IT IS NOW TIME TO STARVE THE UBC OF THEIR DUES AND ASSESMENTS. IT IS TIME FOR THE MONEY FOR THE FAT CAT SALARIES OF THE APPOINTED UBC SCUM TO DRY UP.IT IS TIME TO PUT THE UBC SCUM ON THE STREET. LET THE MEMBERSHIP SHOW HOW POWERFULL THEY ARE BY NOT PAYING THE DUES AND ASSESMENTS. IT WILL BE A STATEMENT BY THE MEMBERSHIP FOR THE WORLD TO SEE.

MAKING OR ENFORCING ILLEGAL UNION SECURITY CLAUSES OR AGREEMENTS OR HIRING AGREEMENTS WHICH MAKE AS A CONDITION OF EMPLOYMENT MEMBERSHIP IN A UNIONVIOLATES THE NLRA. EVEN CONDUCT THAT DOES NOT ACTUALLY RESTRAIN OR COERSE EMPLOYEES BUT IS REASONABLY CALCULATED TO DO SO IS PROHIBITED. NLRA

We have a "maintenance of membership" clause in our union contract. You have to maintain your membership in the union as a condition of employment.

The NLRB recognizes the right of unions and employers to have a maintenance of membership policy and for the union to require the employer to fire workers who violate that clause by failing to maintain their membership in the union.

Read your contract.

Re: Article V Section 1

Ted
The UBCJA cannot contract rules designed to end run Federal Labor law. The maintenance of membership clause is one such illegal rule which the UBCJA & DC refuses to expunge from the contract (CBA). However, said refusal to expunge the illegal rule does not via default make it legal.

In a recent NLRB decision & order (D & O) dated June 27, 2012, the Board stated:


358 NLRB No. 73

June 27, 2012

Comeau, Inc and Automated Systems Workers (AWS) Local 1123 affiliated with Carpenters Industrial Council and United Brotherhood of Carpenters & Joiners of America & Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters (MRCC) **
_____________________________________________


DUES CHECKOFF/AUTHORIZATION FORMS, pg. 4/26

3. We agree with the judge, for the reasons he set forth, that Comau violated Section 8(a)(1) of the Act by threatening employees Nizar Akkari and Gasper Calandrino with discipline or discharge if they did not execute dues-checkoff authorization forms for the CEA.

We further agree with the judge, for the reasons he gave and for the additional reasons set forth below, that Comau and the CEA violated Section 8(a)(1) and Section
8(b)(1)(A), respectively, by making statements and engaging in other conduct that had a reasonable tendency to coerce employee Jeffrey T. Brown to execute a dues checkoff
authorization form.

*An employer may not lead employees to believe that the dues-checkoff authorization method of fulfilling financial obligations to their union is compulsory. Rochester Mfg. Co., 323 NLRB 260 (1997).

The Board has repeatedly held that “the Act guarantees to each employee the right to determine for himself, free from coercion,whether he shall sign a checkoff authorization or not.” Herman Bros., Inc., 264 NLRB 439, 442 (1982).13


{Contrary to the Board, which is a quasi-legislative & judicial administrative agency organized under the Executive Branch of the federal government, the Supreme Court of the United States has declared individual contracts to be illegal. See J.I. Case (1944) which remains "good law" as it has yet to be over-turned. Also, for further reference, see the topic "Blue Card Boy Lives" & you can read the many cases cited which caused the DC to rescind the illegal Blue Card Vacation Wage extortion after 14-years of illegal exactions from your earned vacation wages.}

“Any conduct, express or implied, which coerces an employee in his attempt to exercise this right clearly violates [the Act].” Electronic Workers IUE Local 601 (Westinghouse Electric Corp.), 180 NLRB 1062 (1970).

IF A UNION OR EMPLOYER COMMITS A ULP (BEING THREATENED BY LETTER OF JOB TERMINATION, OR GETTING YOU THROWN OFF A JOB FOR NOT PAYING DUES AND ASSESMENTS) , THE BOARD MUST ORDER THE GUILTY PARTY TO CEASE AND DESIST FROM THE ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR, ( SENDING OUT THREATENING LETTERS STATING YOUR EMPLOYMENT WILL BE TERMINATED). IF AN INDIVIDUAL EMPLOYEE (CARPENTER) IS INJURED BY A ULP (TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT FOR NOT PAYING DUES AND ASSESMENTS), THE BOARD MAY ORDER AN EMPLOYER TO COMPENSATE THE EMPLOYEE. COMPENSATION CAN COME IN THE FORM OF REINSTATEMENT, PAY OF LOST WAGES AND BENEFITS, AND SENIORITY CREDITS. THE BOARD REGULARLY ORDERS PARTIES GUILTY OF ULPS TO POST A NOTICE INFORMING WORKERS OF THE BOARDS DECISION.  DO NOT LET THE NYCDCC AND/OR THE UBC TO THREATEN YOU IN ANY WAY. GO DIRECTLY TO THE REGIONAL NLRB OFFICE AND FILE CHARGES AGAINST THEM.

You actually should pay your union dues and assessments, no matter what you think of the present union leadership.

The union has to cover it's expenses in order to represent you and your dues and assessments cover that expense.

Yes, you can be a free rider asshole, get all Perry Mason about it, run to the National Right To Work Committee's website and figure out some scabby legalistic way to evade paying your fair share of the cost of your representation.

Or, you can man up and pay your assessment.

You worked the hours.

You got the representation.

Now be a man and pay for it.

Don't be a free rider - pay your assessment!

YOU SHOULD NOT PAY YOUR DUES AND ASSESMENTS BECAUSE THE UNION LEADERSHIP IS ROBBING THE MEMBERSHIP. THE MEMBERSHIP HAS NO WAY TO TO CONTROL THE WASTE OF ITS DUES AND ASSESMENTS DUE TO THE CORRUPT TOP DOWN UNION MCCARON HAS IMPLIMENTED. THE MEMBERSHIP HAS NO VOICE AND NO VOTE AS THIS PROCESS HAS BEEN HIJACKED BY MCCARON AND HIS DICTATORAL ANTI-UNION , ANTI-MEMBER POLICIES. MCCARONS DELEGATE SYSTEM IS CORRUPTED BY APPOINTED YES MEN WHO WILL DO ANYTHING TO STAY ON THE UBC PAYROLL. THE DELEGATES WILL NOT VOTE IN THE MEMBERSHIPS BEST INTEREST, ONLY TO LINE THEIR POCKETS WITH A UBC PAYCHECK. SO WHY SHOULD WE PAY OUR HARD EARNED MONEY FOR A UNION WHO DOES NOT REPRESENT THE MEMBERSHIPS BEST INTERESTS, BUT ONLY THE INTEREST OF THE DICTATOR MCCARON. PAY NOTHING. LET THEM STARVE AS THEY STARVE THE MEMBERSHIP. PUT THEM INTO THE GUTTER WHERE THEY BELONG.

The problem is that we are not getting any representation. The contractors call the shots now, so why are we paying Laurel and Hardy when they are only embaressing us? Most of our assessments goes to pay the salaries of those Business Agents who seem to serve no real purpose, the laborers take our work whether the Business Agent comes or not. All they do when they do come is tell you they are filing a grievance, then you never see them again. Every single District Council employee voted for the contract. Every single one of them. Who are you kiddin with your crap? You are on your own, assessments pay useless Business Agents, inept Organizers and a bunch of cops and lawyers.
Here is the Million Dollar Question, who is going to pay to police full mobility?
The members who didn't want full mobility, thats who. Bulello does not care what the members want, Bullello only wants your money to pay his salary. As he said himself, a strike would not affect him, he would still get paid.

I believe the one who posts as dissident is around the age of 57 and has over 30 pension credits and can retire at any time. He wants you to risk your NYDC membership because he is disgrunted. He has nothing to lose. Ask yourself why would someone not put their name up if they believe in what they are posting. The dissident has been threatened by the NYDC officals of being brought up on charges and this is his way of trying to get even.The WDA is a dues we must pay in order for the NYDC to survive, who else is going to pay for our own union,Flintlock ? The non-union sector must love the DISSIDENT and people like him. The union contractors must love it too, it shows that the union members are not behind their own union. This will weaken us more . PAY YOUR DUES !!!!!!!!!!!

Why not just man up and pay your assessment?

You worked the hours, you owe the money, just pay up.

Don't be a scab and sue the union, just deposit your vacation check, write a check to the District Council and pay what you owe!

IF YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE BEING SOLD OUT TO THE CONTRACTORS BY THE NYCDCC AND MCCARON DON'T PAY A DIME TO THESE UNION BREAKERS. THE NYCDCC AND THE UBC DON'T REPRESENT YOUR BEST INTEREST, THEY ARE IN COHOOTS WITH THE CONTRACTORS. THEY ARE BARGAINING AWAY GAINS WE HAVE ESTABLISHED OVER 100 YEARS AGO. JUST LIKE BILLELO SAID HE COULD CARE LESS HE IS BEING PAID BY THE COUNCIL, BUT LITTLE DOES HE KNOW THAT IF THE MEMBERSHIP DOES NOT PAY ITS DUES AND ASSESMENTS HE WILL FIND HIMSELF,LEBLOW AND ALL THE COUNCIL RATS OUT ON THE STREET. THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO ERADICATE THE RATS THAT ARE INFESTING 395 AND WASHINGTON DC. ITS TIME FOR THE EXTERMINATERS (THE MEMBERSHIP) TO GET RID OF THE INFESTATION THAT HAS TAKEN AWAY OUR DEMOCRATIC RIGHT TO GUIDE OUR LIVELYHOOD AND MAKE OUR LIVES BETTER. THE MEMBERSHIP WANTS ITS UNION BACK, NOW.

So basically you want to destroy the union by getting everybody to not pay their dues and assessments.

That means we'll all be out there working for $ 7 an hour like the scabs do.

Great plan!

Although this is an old post but many will bump to it.
Here is my two cents.
The section you have posted  of the NLRB Section 8(b)(1)(A) is a violation if the union do coerce a member to act or restrain a member to act.
In the case of the assessment and union obligation in keeping up with your union dues is a condition to your employment. I guess you forgot when you have signed the contract. LOL
Anyway, the matter of the question here is that Section 8(b)(1)(A) does not apply to union dues and assessments. No one in the NYCDCC has coerce any member.
If your assessment or union dues is not in order you can be terminated due to your arrears.
You usually have one week to pay since it is a grace period in case you have not worked that much.
After that period of time you have to pay and a receipt or confirmation number will satisfy your payments.
Also it is within your responsibility as a member and a person to update your financial obligation.
