Les look at some of your highlights:

"The local unions are legal fictions without purpose or authority, and their existence
merely creates a layer of political bureaucracy between the rank-and-file members and the
leaders at the District Council which can only do one thing, foster corruption, because it insulates
District Council leadership and the functions of a labor organization from being fully
accountable to the members.
"Either (1) the Local Unions should be given real power and authority to function as labor
organizations; or (2) they should be eliminated entirely"

Of course you reveal your true desire for a council controlled mega Union here"Its benefits include more efficient economies of scale, stronger bargaining power, more effective political lobbying, and the elimination of corrupt locals. The most important benefit of a single union is that it will allow the members to
meaningfully participate in their union affairs."

I dont know who wrote this trash but it is pure nonsense in my humble opinion.. You already have a mega council and you have no rights now.There will be no direct involvement of the members .They will be boxed out and replaced by the Walsh Delusion of Super Delegates that do not exist..Just as McCarron and Conboy are asking for.All you will have when your done is the same BS situation only this time with no pesky locals to get in the way of your corrupt, McCarron controlled,mob infested council. The same policy of the UBC and McCarron.If you are allowed to pursue this agenda there will be NO direct involvement by the rank and file at all.Not even the few souls who do show up at meetings The recent appointment by the UBC of the Members to Serve on Advisory Negotiations Committee is a fine example. Hand picked woo haa's put in place by the UBC to satisfy the judge.Right under Walshs nose with no input from the rank and file.Your idea of "members meaningfully participate in their union affairs" is paid and bought delegates. Who wrote this Bullshit.
   You of course went out of your way to quote how worthless Walsh said Locals are in his First and Second Interim Report.And then your mouth piece says "As Judge Conboy so aptly put it" The same Conboy who with the UBC is trying to screw the members of New York and your lawyer is kissing his ass
