For more than 30 years, we have witnessed a steady decline in membership and market share. As a union, it's our obligation to address both of these concerns fairly and effectively. To do that, we have undertaken a general restructuring of our international union. Let me be clear, this was initiated in response to a specific region, local, or individual. It was initiated nationwide in response to problems which were hurting our entire membership. Throughout the U.S. and Canada, we have established 65 regional councils that operate on a uniform structure that provides for participation of the effective day-to-day operations.
Mr. Mc: GET IT MASTER CEREMNONY !
"For more than 30 years, we have witnessed a steady decline in membership and market share"
BECAUSE I SAID NO RESIDENTIAL, - I WANTED NOTHING UNDER 12 STORIES, PLA'S, I LET THE MOB RUN THESE AFFAIRS.
" To do that, we have undertaken a general restructuring of our international union."
I WANT TO SUPPLY A CHEAP HIRING HALL FOR MY CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES SWEETHEART DEALS
LIKE THE VA HOSPITAL IN FLA. THINK OF WHAT HE'S MADE OVER THE YEARS SINCE HE SAID THIS
" Let me be clear, this wasn't initiated in response to a specific region, local, or individual. It was initiated nationwide in response to problems which were hurting our entire membership."
BULLSHIT YOU CONGRESS, I STARTED IT IN CALI WAY BEFORE THIS WITH FIENSTEIN.
AND SINCE THE MEN SEEM TO BE HURTING I PUT THE SONS OF MOBSTERS IN CONTROL OF LOCALS I INTENDED TO DISSOLVE ANYWAY, HAVE AT IT BOYS IT'LL BE ENOUGH FOR YOU & YOUR FAMILIES TO COVER ANY TIME IN THE BIG HOUSE DOWN THE ROAD.
"At the same time, our council structure recognizes the democratic rights of our members and encourages meaningful participation in the policy and governments of our union."
TELL THAT TO DERRICO AND THE 157 EBOARD,
FOR THE GOOD OF THE ORDER, SIT THE FUCK DOWN AND SHUT UP.
"Members attend meetings; elect officers, and conduct the affairs of their local on a ``one man, one vote'' basis, much as they have always done, but, in addition, they now elect rank-and-file delegates to their regional council. Those delegates elect council officers; assist in negotiations and ratify contracts, and oversee council operations. The elected delegate body provides active members a meaningful role in the policy decisions"
LOOK AT THE MATH DOUG. SPEAK NOT OF PLACING THE POWER OF FIRING ANTONE WHO DOESN'T AGREE WITH YOU, NOW CONSIDER THERE'S MORE OF THEM THAN THE ELECTED SO CALLED TRUE VOICE OF THE MEN AND VIOLA...........................NO VOICE
"To ensure an expanded opportunity for rank-and-file participation, the number of delegates is proportional to the local's membership. In New York City, for example, this will now provide representation by more than 150 elected rank-and-file members. Previously, the entire council operated with only 16 delegates, 1 from each local."
BUT WHAT DOUG IS INTENTIONALLY MISGUIDING CONGRESS WITH IS THIS.
ONCE THEY'RE DRAWN UNDER THE COUNCIL AND SPECILAIZED AS IS BEING MANDATED IN TRUE RICO SENSE IS THAT AFTER THAT YOUR CORPORATIST MINDESET RUNS WILD EVICERATING THE RIGHTS WE NEEDED TO PROTECT OURSELVES FROM ROBBER BARON TYPES. BECAUSE THATS THE WAY YOU NEED IT TO BE TO PLAY THIS ELITIST GAME. YOU ARE NOT A UNION MAN McCARRON.
"Our locals are representative_our councils are a representative democracy, not unlike the system that brings each of you to the House of Representatives. Within the council, delegates debate and decide policy. Their decisions are then implemented by administrative structure that's accountable. Under our previous structure, inattention, comfort and status quo, and personal interest resulted in ineffectiveness at best, and too often squelch debate."
PREVIOUS STRUCTURE. WHAT DOES HISTORY DO FOR HINDSIGHT.
GET McCARRON OUT AND CLEAN THE COUNCILS WHILE WERE AT IT.
SQUELCH DEBATE, -NO VOICE FOR YOU !
"While the direct democracy of the local union hall, which some of our critics insist on is a democratic ideal, in practice, the system too frequently resembles ward healing at its worst. Let me explain. It is a business agent's job to represent the interests of every member, but in a local of 1,500 members, only a few hundred vote regularly. It's easy to see how the needs of a few men who can assure your election, your job, could take priority. Members too busy raising a family to take an active could be largely ignored, and in the worst cases, members who spoke about, again, the system, like Jack Durcan, were punched. They found themselves at the bottom of the work list again and again"
THERE IS NO INTELLECT LEVEL THEY POSSESN TO RUN THE AFFAIRS OF THEIR UNION.
THEY'RE ALL HOMER SIMPSONS AND THEY WORK & LIVE IN WARDS.
"The ward healing system failed American democracy, and it's failed union democracy. It's wrong. Our union has a responsibility to represent every member. As part of the restructuring, we've computerized hiring procedures to ensure that every member has equal to work that they're qualified for."
DOUBLE TALK. AND THE COMPUTERIZED LIST WAS MANIPULATED FOR THE NEXT 14 YEARS.
HOLY SHIT I MEAN, - WTF. IF McCARRON AINT OUT IN LESS THAN SIX MONTHS WE'RE SERIOUSLY KIDDING
"Members like Jack shouldn't be punished for taking an active role. Under this system, they won't be. Instead, they'll be encouraged to bring their day-to-day concerns to their local's discussions and the council through their elected delegates. As employees of the council, business agents are free to do their job representing the interests of every member without concern about reelection. They get clear policy direction from council delegates and are accountable for doing their jobs. This structure is in place throughout our brotherhood. Wherever possible, we have worked closely with local leaders to ensure a smooth transition. We have encouraged prompt local union and council delegate elections. Most have been completed within a year of restructuring including those in northern California and Michigan where, by the way, far more members voted than before supporting the restructuring. In place like New York, widespread corruption and mob influence left us no choice but to implement the policy."
NO-ONE ENCOURAGED, - BUT INSTEAD PROMOTED FEAR & ANXIOUSNESS.
WHEN YOU CAN'T RELECT, - THEY'RE YOUR STOOGES DOUG.
THE ONLY POLICY DIRECTION IS, - SIT DOWN SHUT THE FUCK AND THE COMPANY GETS WHAT THEY WANT. BECAUSE THEY'RE IN IT ------LA MUERTA----------US, - NOT YOU THE MEMBERS.
YOU WORKED SO CLOSELY WITH THE LOCALS LEADERS AS YOU SAY, LOOK WHERE DERRICO GOT DUE TO THE "TRANSITION" THAT YOU HAD FORDE THROUGH CALLAHAN COOK UP THE 157 SCANDAL.
AND AS TO THE SPEED OF RESTRUCTURING, THE TERM WEHRMACHT SOUND FAMILIAR
"With most of the legal challenges finally resolved, we've set delegate elections for the fall of next year. That allows us to complete restructuring and ensures safeguards that prevent the return of corruption. In northern California, only 1 of 35 locals opposed restructuring. That restructuring is completed, and delegate elections have been held."
DELEGATIONS, THEN FIRING OF PAID EMPLOYEES OPPOSING.
IT DIDN'T PREVENT THE RETURN OF CORRUPTION AND THIS SHOULD BE SOMETHING TO NAI;L HIM WITHM WITH HE SAID IT AND WE CAN'T TRUST HIM AFTER 15 MORE YEARS SINCE HE SAID THESE WORDS.
NO ACCOUNABILITY, NO DISCLOSURE AND HE CAN'T RESTRUCTURE THIS UNION WHEN CONTEMPTIOUS MEN WERE WELL AWARE OF THIS.
The restructuring of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters was done to protect the interest of the members. It was done entirely within the framework of the union's constitution and Federal law. As different industries vary in character and structure, so must the unions that represent their members in those industries. The representative democracy of elected delegates we've established is well-suited to represent our members and today's construction industry. And in a rough, competitive economy, the union the bargains effectively offers its members the best protection,
YOU MADE CHANGES TO BOTH THE CONSTITUTION AND MADE THE COUNCILS CHANGE THE AGREEMENTS SURE IT WAS UNDER FEDERAL LAW, YOU PAY DECARLO & CO MILLIONS AND THE CONVENTIONS WHERE THESE CHANGES SECRETLY TAKE PLACE, BECAUSE DERRICO WON'T SPILL THE BEANS. IF YOU DON'T WEAR THE RIGHT COLOR T-SHIRT IT MAKES IT EASIER TO PICK OUT WHO'S OUT THE DOOR.
THIS IS THE LAST OF IT ,
"and any just labor law much allow unions to change themselves with the changing world, and that is what the carpenters have been doing. Thank you.
THIS IS WHAT I WANT, THIS IS MY CHANGING CONSTRUCTUION COMPANY, BOARD OF DIRECTOR CORPORATIST MINDESET AND BE DAMNED ANY COLLECTIVE VOICE TO STOP ME.
Mr. McCarron. Thank you, Mr. Chairman and members of the subcommittee..........................................
