About The Cement League
The Cement League was founded in 1905 in conjunction with the growing labor movement in America, and the beginning of skyscraper construction in New York City.
The mission of The Cement League is to be a powerful and collective voice for union workers
. The organization operates as the bargaining agent for eight building trade unions and employs a professional engineer to assist members with technical issues. Through its leadership, The Cement League negotiates labor contracts with employers -- including the negotiation of wages, work rules, complaint procedures, rules governing employment and promotion of workers, benefits, workplace safety and policies. Since its inception, The Cement League has been a charter member of The Building Trades Employersâ€™ Association (BTEA).

A powerful voice my ass, what a crock oF bullshit.
* Were it true as they claim; then why is the CEMENT LEAGUE
capitulating to the BTEA's Colletti & corporate Developers Tutor-Ross and the corrupt UBCJA INternational to drive down Wages & Benefits by recruiting scabs form the Non-Union, Cash is King sector?
* Why is the CEMENT LEAGUE
in conjunction with Tutor-Perini Corp (TPC), Stephen Ross & the Building Trades Employers Association (BTEA) creating a new, weakened Union of "Provisional Carpenters"
with lower Wage & Benefit Rates.
* Is it so they can all emply their favorite type worker, the Traveling Illegal Alien running from the law to avoid deportation and pay them Cash, off the books - given that Cash is King in NYC and by doing so reduce their costs while screwing the rest of the workers (Americans Citizens, while lining their own pockets with the difference saved? You bet your ass it is!!
Poweful voice my ass, in your dreams. Talk is cheap & actions speak louder than wordss. The CEMENT LEAGUES
claim are nothing more than a pack of lies and the men know it.
* Why is the CEMENT LEAGUE jumpping in bed with Douglas McCarron & has corporate puppet-masters/handlers and filing phony Test Cases with the NLRB in New York City,
causing the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) to comment on their failure to submit a legal brief to support the false claims and their "agnostic" behavior?
This so called "POWERFUL" Union has capitulated to the corrupt UBCJA International in a multi-state Hobbs Act Racketeering scheme to defraud workers, defraud the NLRB Board
and to alter and amend the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) by submitting to a case wherein its attorneys are not in control of the legal action and wherein the UBCJA International & their puppet-masters-handlers are the driving force behind the litigation and are also funding it.
The UBCJA International is not the U.S. Congress, nor is TPC or developer Rossi or the losers at the BTEA;
yet all of them by conspiring to re-write an Act of Congress, the NLRA via the filing of a phony test case with the NLRB Board in Washington D.C., which by design was done to cement a precedent into law via the back door (the typical Tutor-McCarron & now Ross-BTEA-Cement League modus-operandi) are guilty of criminal racketeering (because we say you are; see, right back at ya; sounds like Tutor & McCarron -right?)
* And finally, why did the corrupt UBCJA International and their corporate puppet-masters/handlers file this phony Test Case before the NLRB and use the corrupt Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) across the river in Jersey to act as the lead litigant in the matter?
Simple, the NLRB bozo's are your C-D-students in law school who barely passed the bar exam; and, by doing so they avoid real motion practice in the Mnahattan; Judge Bermans Federal District Court which, by design was done to avoid complying with the terms and conditions of the Consent Decree, which the corporate puppet-master/handlers abhore as it inteferes with their master plan to lower all wages and benefits and with a Federal Court monitoring you, you can not get away with all the things you want to pull. The USAO's better wake the hell up, because the UBCJA via the formation of the NRCC has just put corruption front & center and its on steroids.
Within the 25-1/2 year docket of this case, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit issued a decision on February 20, 2007 at 9, pg. 7 which stated:
“The Consent Decree is clear and unambiguous. King, 65 F. 3d. at 1058. The Consent Decree addresses CBA’s in two places: Paragraph 4(f) (1) (b) and Job Referral Rule 5(B). However, neither empowers the Union to circumvent the Consent Decree through a CBA.”
At 14, pg 8, the Court of Appeals stated:
“Rule 5(B) does not permit the Union to make unlimited changes to the Job Referral Rules in a CBA. This is particularly true when Job Referral Rule 5(B) is read in conjunction with Consent Decree Paragraph 11, which again, provide that “[t]o the extent that this Consent Decree conflicts with any current or future rights, privileges or rules applicable to the District Council or its membership, the District Council…hereby waives compliance with any such right, privilege or rule an agrees that it and its membership will act in accordance with this Consent Decree.”
The above bolded portion is what irks the handlers the most as they can't off-shore the Trust Fund monies they steal from the members fast enough to loan it to themselves or their buddies in China - who then funnel our money back into the U.S. and finance Non-Union projects with it in NYC, amongst others. Sucks when you can't get the capital you need via conventional means right ladies?
The Jersey Mobsters the UBCJA International set up across the river are laughing their ass'es off at the NYC boys and the Federal Court and U.S. Attorney as well. Guess it's gonna be UBCJA RICO # 2 sooner than you think!
Want my U-Number Doug? Oh that's right, you already got it
At 21, pg. 8, the Court of Appeals stated:
“Paragraph 11 further requires the Union to make the Job Referral Rules part of the District Council By-Laws.”
All criminal racketeering suspects are guilty until proven innocent - ahh, shit, I meant innocent until proven guilty in a corruption and bribe free court of law; or are they?
