Section 21 (G) "It shall be mandatory that each active member provide at least 1 day and/or 7 hours of Union activity (picketing etc.) per calender year when called upon by the New York City District Council of Carpenters... any assessment, fine or penalty for failure to perform such activity... shall be used to defray the expenses of organizing and shall not be used for any other purpose. UBC Constitution provides: Any member found guilty of violating the BY-Laws many be fined an amount not in excess of three hundred ($300) dollars."
Said language, is a willful & wanton violation of NLRA Section 7 rights.
Mandated/forced/coerced wage extortion of Vacation Wages and/or Threats of and implementation of charges and phony Kangaroo Court Trials notwithstanding.
Eleven years of illegal exactions and extortion of your Vacation Wages has occurred, replete with a $250 dollar fine for the first 7-years and a $500 dollar Fine for the last 4-years.
All of the monies thus collected (whether or not you volunteered or were coerced and directly threatened with charges, fines, trials expulsion threats etc) are facially unlawful as is the express langauge on the Blue Card. Items A-G under section 21 establishing the council operations and funding are facially unlawful.
