Laying Down His Hammer to Apply a Broom to a Troubled Union

When he was elected in December as the leader of the city’s 25,000 unionized carpenters, Michael Bilello was helping to build the new PATH station at ground zero. After the election, he “put down his tools” — as they say in his trade — and went to Brooks Brothers, where he had once built a staircase, to buy a new suit. “It was the only place I could find with the union label in the pocket,” he said.
I believe that's one step over the line, Surfer Dude; SDNY security didn't hassle the Bilello entourage for a supportive Fabulous Furry Freak Brother attending his hearing.
