You say the only people who should work in NYC are people who live in the 5 boroughs. I disagree on the grounds that this is a brotherhood and any member should be able to work within the jurisdiction. I live well within the NYCDCC jurisdiction but I hold no grudges against brothers and sisters who don't. I have never worked outside of that jurisdiction either.
Don't misunderstand the meaning of full mobility as it pertains to our contract negotiations. It has nothing to do with where you live. It means that a contractor can move his crew from job to job and only the steward is from the hall. I am against full mobility.
Your issue about out of towners is more political than union related, with commuter tax ramifications. I have no problem with that. NYC is my union's jurisdiction, I am proud of it and I am here to stay.UNDERSTAND?
