if you ask questions they get answered many questions are not the locals to answer .If you ask for a motion to be brought up at the delagetes meeting go to the delagates meeting and see if its brought up .You can only get satisfaction if you put the time and energy into it.It is our union and apathy is one of our enemies.
We, as carpenters work under many different contracts, it all depends on the employer. Some contractors belong to associations like the Wall and Ceiling, General Contractors Association(G.C.A.), M.W.A., cement league and so on. If you aren't of this you are probably relatively new in the business or you don't get involved. All of these contracts are posted on this website or you can ask your shop Steward. Many of our stewards don't have a clue because they don't go to meetings or inform themselves on what is happening in this union. If your steward has no clue of which contract you are working under he is a steward in name only, he's only a steward for the purpose of getting off the list faster and is most likely the biggest penis licker on the job. If you can't get answers from your steward ask for the council Reps phone # and call them directly or call Paul Capurso(347) 835-2861 Paul is the regional manager for the rep center. I would say the council rep may have to get back to you with the correct information as most of them don't have a clue either.
The bottom line is get yourself informed, do your homework cause no one else is going to do it for you. This website is a good source of information with exception of some of the idiots chatting on the gang box.
Back to your question, you need to be more specific because there are House carpenters that work for the building or tenant that also work under different contracts with different rates and benefits.
