TOW THE LINE OR GET DISSOLVED

Robert Kwiecinski
IN NJ ONCE MCCARON TOOK OFFICE AS GENERAL PRESIDENT UNILATERAL CHANGES BEGAN. WE WERE TOLD THAT WE COULD NOT DIRECTLY VOTE FOR OUR CBA'S ANYMORE. WE WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT VOTE FOR OUR BUSINESS AGENT ANY MORE. WE WERE TOLD ALL BUSINESS AGENTS WOULD BE APPOINTED. WE WERE LUCK AT FIRST. MCCARON ALLOWED THE BUSINESS AGENTS THAT WERE VOTED IN PRIOR TO HIS UNILATERAL TAKE OVER TO STAY IN OFFICE AS LONG AS THEY TOWED THE MCCARON COMPANY LINE. ALL MEMBERS REJECTED THESE UNILATERAL CHANGES BY MCCARON. THE MEMBERSHIP WAS ENRAGED. WE BROUGHT THIS TO THE FLOOR OF OUR MEETINGS AND SPOKE OF FIGHTING AGAINST THESE CHANGES. OUR BUSINESS AGENT STOOD UP AND SAID. THE CHANGES HAVE BEEN PUT IN PLACE BY GP MCCARON. ANY DISSENTION OR UPRISING OF THE MEMBERSHIP TO SEEK TO GO BACK TO THE PRE MCCARON WAYS WOULD BE FIRST DEALT WITH BY THE FIRING OF OUR VOTED IN BUSINESS AGENT.  A NEW BUSINESS AGENT WOULD THEN BE APPOINTED BY MCCARON, SO THE NEW APPOINTEE  BUSINESS AGENT COULD SQUASH THE UPRISING. OUR BUSINESS AGENT ALSO STATED THAT IF WE DIDN'T WATCH OUR STEP THAT THE LOCAL WOULD BE DISSOLVED AND OUR MEMBERSHIP WOULD BE MERGED WITH THAT OF ANOTHER LOCAL. AND IN THE NEW LOCAL WE WOULD NOT HAVE THE BACKING OF THE NEW MCCARON APPOINTED BUSINESS AGENTS. MANY MEMBERS STILL WANTED TO FIGHT THE MCCARON PLAN BUT THAT IDEA WAS SQUASHED BY OUR OWN VOTED IN BUSINESS AGENT WHO NOW WAS A MCCARON COMPANY MAN. AND HE KNEW IF HE DIDN'T TOW THE LINE HE WOULD BE FIRED AND LOOSE HIS HIGHLY PAID JOB. SO AS YOU SEE ONCE MCCARONS STRIPPED THE MEMBERSHIP FROM VOTING FOR THEIR BUSINESS AGENTS THE CORRUPTION STARTED. ONCE A BUSINESS AGENT IS APPOINTED AND CAN BE FIRED AT ANY TIME BY MCCARON, THAT BUSINESS AGENT WILL TOW THE MCCARON LINE OR LOOSE HIS JOB AND BE BLACKBALLED. AND WHAT ABOUT THE ISSUE OF LOOSING CONTRACT RATIFICATION BY THE RANK AND FILE ? EVER SINCE THE MEMBERSHIP HAS LOST THE RIGHT TO VOTE DIRECTLY FOR THEIR CBA'S WE HAVE BEEN LOOSING GROUND. WE HAVE LOST THE BARGAINING POWER WE ONCE HAD. OUR WAGES HAVE NOT KEPT PACE WITH ANY OF THE OTHER TRADES OR EVEN WITH AREA INFLATION. OUR JOB SITE CONDITIONS HAVE BEEN COMPROMISED BY HAVING NO MEMBERSHIP COLLECTIVE BARGAINING POWER. ONCE THE MEMBERSHIP IS TAKEN OUT OF DIRECT CBA BARGAINING AND RATIFICATION, IT WEAKENS THE MEMBERSHIPS STANCE. THE UBC AND THE CONTRACTORS DO ALL THE NEGOTIATING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. THERE IS NO MEMBERSHIP INVOLVEMENT. THE ONLY THING THE MEMBERSHIP HEARS IS THAT WE HAVE A NEW CONTRACT, AND TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT, IT'S A DONE DEAL. NYC MEMBERS YOU MUST STAND STRONG IT IS YOUR UNION. YOU HAVE THE CONSENT DECREE AND MUST USE IT TO KEEP MEMBERSHIP INVOLVEMENT AND DIRECT MEMBERSHIP RATIFICATION OF ALL CBA'S. THE IDEA OF THE DELEGATES VOTING FOR THE RANK AND FILE NEEDS TO BE SCRAPPED AS THIS SYSTEM WILL ONLY LEAD TO RUBBER STAMPING AND CORRUPTION. THE IDEA OF MCCARON APPOINTING ANYONE TO RUN NYC NEEDS TO BE STOPPED DEAD IN IT'S TRACKS. AND THE IDEA OF THE UBC RUNNING THE TRAIL COMMITTEE WITHOUT OUTSIDE UNBIASED SUPERVISION WILL LEAD TO FORCED DISCRIMINATION AGAINST DISSIDENT MEMBERS SEEKING A DEMOCRATIC UNION.  THE UBC RUNNING THE TRIAL COMMITTEE UNCHECKED WILL LEAD TO A STRANGLE HOLD ON A DEMOCRATIC UNION AS IT HAS ACROSS THE U.S.  MCCARON DOES NOT WANT A FAIR TRIAL FOR ANY DISSIDENT. HE JUST WANTS TO BURY ALL CASES THAT WOULD SUBVERT HIS UNILATERAL POWERS.

A UNION IS NOT RUN BY ONE MANS THOUGHTS AND VISIONS. AUNION IS RUN BY THE COLLECTIVE THOUGHTS OF ITS MEMBERSHIP. DOUG MCCARON IS A DICTATOR AND HAS HIGHJACKED THE UBC FROM ITS MEMBERS. VOTE DOUG OUT.
