THINK IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE? THINK AGAIN!
Doug McCarron always selects a weaker area of the nation within the UBC & experiments with UBC Rank & File givebacks to the Contractor Associations, and when he gets away with it in one or two Councils - watch out, because it will soon become "critical"
to the survival of these "SOPHISTICATED REGIONAL EMPLOYERS, GC'S & SUB"
MANDATORY SKILLS FORMS & A ONE YEAR "IRREVOCABLE ASSIGNMENT" of:
____________(print name) assign to the ____DERANGED COMMIE'S & LONER's CLUB; Douglas J. McCriminal-McCarron, PRINCIPA
L____________(fill in Council) from my earnings, a sum equal to the Unions Membership Dues. Assessment’s, and Initiation Fee (the Union will notify my Employer of the current amount
). I authorize & direct my Employer to deduct such sum and to remit the Money to the Union Monthly.
This Assignment is irrevocable for One (1) Year from this date or until Termination of the Labor Agreement, whichever occurs first. This Assignment shall be renewed Automatically, for successive 12-month periods, unless the Union and my Employer receive my written Notice of Termination of this Assignment not more than twenty (20) days and not less than ten (10) days prior to renewal of the Assignment.
This Authorization is effective regardless of my status as a Member, Non-Member, or "Financial Core" payer and applies regardless of any Future Resignation of Membership on my part.
I hereby authorize the UNITED BROTHERHOOD OF CARPENTERS AND JOINERS OF AMERICA to act as my collective bargaining agent in dealing with my employer in regards to wages, hours, and other conditions of employment. All previous authorizations made by me are revoked.
You gotta love the new category (model) for Reduction in Wages which will be part of both Doug McCarrons & BTEA's pending negotiations, via the slick insertion (apparently unchallenged out West) of the "SENIOR DRYWALL UTILITY WORKER", "WALL & CEILING UTILITY WORKER"
& the appropriate reduction in wages & benefits that it affords.
Note - these are not apprentices.
This modeling, if not challenged will be brought forth to other areas of UBC Trade autonomy & you can bet the Contractor Associations will be pushing for many new categories of "Helpers" with reduced wages & benefit packages in all Councils, as the stage has been set to break the Unions through the extended recession.
Bare in mind that in order to be paid, you shall sign the above agreement and that it is tied directly to your ability to receive unemployment benefits.
BLacks Law 8th Ed: irrevocable, adj. Unalterable, committed beyond recall. Assignment:; 1. the transfer of rights or property
R.O. WALSH - THIS ONE IS FOR YOU....ARE YOU FAINTLY AWARE OF COMMUNICATION WORKERS OF AMERCIA v. BECK? i.e. "BECK RIGHTS"
Are you aware of the basic's for "CONTRACT LAW 101"?
If so, please review the above proposed "Skills Form" and Please LINE OUT each & every sentence from it wherein Doug McCarron & this ex-Judge Berman intend to violate the Law here in New York.
This is a "no-brainer" for a sharp attorney like you, appointed by the Courts to protect the Workers Rights here in the great State of New York. The second to last sentence is "FACIALLLY UNLAWFUL" as per NY State labor Law & Supreme Court precedent.
"This Authorization is effective regardless of my status as a Member, Non-Member, or "Financial Core" payer and applies regardless of any Future Resignation of Membership on my part".
The above violates NLRA Section 8(a)(3), Beck Rights, RTW Law, NY Labor Law and is indicative of "bad faith" on the part of the UBC INTERNATIONAL & their PAID SPOKESMAN FORMER JUDGE CONBOY.......the only thing left out here was the assigment of your first born child to the "master".
DO NOT TURN A BLIND EYE TO THESE PRESSING & PATENTLY OBVIOUS ISSUES OF CORRUPTION @ THE UBC INTERNATIONAL. MCCARRON & HIS COHORTS IN CRIME HAVE BEEN USING UBC MEMBERS MONIES FOR 16+ YEARS TO FILE SUIT UPON SUIT, UNTOLD MILLIONS HAVE BEEN SPENT (MEMBER MONIES, NOT DOUG'S) ON LEGAL FEES FOR HIM TO SYSTEMATICALLY END RUN THE NLRA & THUS NEGATE THE ACT, ALBEIT, IN PIECEMEAL FASHION.
The hug-fest which went on in open Court on April 6th needs to end.
Time to start being a Lawyer & standing up to the Criminals @ the UBC International.
Did not see or read in the Transcript anywhere within the Kangaroo Court session one area where you put the UBC in their place, or where you made any reference to or citation of relevant case-law. (NLRB, Appellate Decisions or Supreme Court precedent/landmark decisions)
ANYONE EVER SAY NO TO DOUG? THE MEMBERS HAVE, SO WHEN WILL YOU?
Rather dissappointing so far
