The multi-employer bargaining rep GCA did not withdraw recognition, rather, a minority of it's employers who refused to abide by the Consent Decree willfully chose to ignore the fact that GCA is their exclusive bargaining representative.
Moreover, the unlawful withdrawal of recognition occurred before the NYCDCC's local union, DC delegate & DC Officer elections were complete per the process established under the Civil RICO Consent Decree and as approved by the Federal Court, Judge Richard M. Berman thus violating the majority's right to choose its bargaining representatives unimpeded by the unlawful interference of members vetoed/fired or rival Unions seeking to steal members and gain access to Benefit Trust Fund monies, which is the end game for those involved and which negates their phony arguments relative to democracy.
The NLRA, LMRA & LMRDA require majority rule - period. Steele v. Louisville is settled law in that regard, as related to 7.
Convicted felons are prohibited from serving in any capacity within a Union for a min. of 13-years, notwithstanding prohibitions against racketeering required by the Consent Decree. This case presents untold ULP's and other far more serious charges.
