Are Non-union Contractors & Undocumented Workers a Problem?
What are you doing about it?
Where do those non-union contractors come from?
How do they get to become able to get enough experience
to go after a job that could threaten us?
When is the last time you saw a crew working on some small retail store,
private or apartment house?
Did they have permits posted?
Did you call it in to 311?
I’m not asking you to become a cop or building inspector.
I’m not asking you to give your name.
What should you do?
2-Tell the operator that you want to report “construction with no posted permits".
3-The debris that's being carrying out looks like they may also
"be doing electrical and plumbing work"
4-Give the street address
5-Give the nearest cross street
6-What borough is it happening in
7-If they ask how you know that they have no permits?
Say: “I don’t know. All I know is that there are NO POSTED PERMITS
and that construction is going on.
7-Be sure to mention if it is going on late (after hours) and weekends
8-Are they hoisting (using a crane) over a sidewalk without a flagman
without stopping traffic and pedestrians?
9- Are they working without a sidewalk bridge (covered walkway)?
If we can’t organize them or stop them,
we can make their job slow and expensive without using a picket line
NOTE: * YOU DON’T HAVE TO GIVE YOUR NAME, YOU CAN BE ANONYMOUS *
If you're union and working non-union you deserve nothing. If you're dumb enough to rely on the OWL, you're probably not a good enough carpenter to be able to find your own work. A good mechanic can make a lifetime of good jobs from free mobility. Scabs are worse than a willing non-union worker we can organize.
how come man hours have not increased in full mobility ? 18 mil hours does not spell growth + we are heading to 17 mil real soon. don't be surprised + a lot of hours are at lower pla rates. not to mention other trades don't respect carpenters
if your not working union you deserve nothing lmao 70 % of the country is non union i guess they deserve a depression to happen again no thanks to f/m only you and your friends will be working all year round
not good enough lol you can be the biggest shit head going its not what you know its who you know
now listen i haven’t paid the dues which means i am done with the union so when I’m wor=rking my nonunion job and you decide to picket the job do not offer me a union card and tell me about the great life you live
happy new year
18000 muslims coming into america from syria its your job they are gonna get l m a o
Funny how every shortcoming is someone else's fault. Those who can do. Those who can't do complain it's not my fault. Grow up. Stop looking for handouts. Bet you didn't complain when your buddies were taking care of you.
what buddies LOL of course I’m taken care of my self if i depended on the union i would be holding a sign like the homeless do.
im not paying the 150.00 assessment on top of my dues so my guess is I’m gonna be suspended from the union i had my last supper 12/17/14 i wish you all the best good luck to you all I’m done.
The problem is a lot of these jobs ARE properly filing and posting permits..most of the bigger non-union jobs have lead men who are UNION TRAINED...this is the bigger problem , our union is being destroyed by our own people who sold out... along with the government getting involved trying to keep the profits out of "the wrong hands" .Well guess what??We had a stronger union and a much bigger market share when "the wrong hands" were involved.If their not gonna make a buck with us their gonna do it on the non-union end.It makes me sick walking from the port and passing the brand new hotel that went up completely non union...How has it gotten so bad and what can we do to end it?? Brothers... I don't have an answer I can only say I agree with the previous post that we need to JUST DO SOMETHING
