RIGHT NOW THE UBC, USING MEMBERS MONEY DECIDED TO BUILD ANOTHER HOTEL NEXT TO THE MEGA SHRINE KNOWN AS MCCARRNS FOLLY..
The justification is they need to provide rooms for the hundreds if not thousands they fly to Vegas with free round trip airfare.I say free but remember it is your hard earned Per Capita tax paying for it all.Free beer and lavish food spreads.Swag bags Limo service to and from the Vegas strip and a huge dIsh of propaganda BS.Lets not forget the $90,000 paid to the photographer Wong for pics with Dougy.
The UBC hotel project is covered under the Nevada Drywall CBA.Good until 2018.
What CBA is the new UBC members bought and paid for Tru Hotel covered under???Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters/WWCCA 2014-2018 Drywall Master Labor Agreement And its affiliated Local Unions 897, 1780, 1607, 1977, and 2375 of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America..Naww.. Cant be..Zone 1 Carp $36.41 benefits $17.61..

This CBA is clear and declares all Pre Fabs will be done by Vegas Local UBC members paid Vegas rate and benefits. Shipping in Pre Fabs from Tenn is in violation of this CBA.So who on a UBC Owned Hotel is allowing this.How many other CBAs will be violated s a UBC Pre Fab factory can produce and sell Pre Fab walls at garbage wages.
"Pre-fabrication of materials outside this agreement is permissible ONLY under the following situations": OPPS NO SITUATIONS ON THE TRU HOTEL!!!
227. This Agreement shall apply to all work performed in the Employer's warehouses, shops or yards for work in connection with a job or project covered by the terms of this Agreement, and all of the production or fabrication of materials by the Employer for use on the projects will be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
This Agreement shall cover all work in connection with...
assembling and fabrication – whether performed at the jobsite or a panelization compound
The contracting Employer agrees that all work covered by this Agreement shall be performed by carpenters and that such workmen shall be employees of the Employer or the subcontractor employed under the terms of this Agreement.
3000. In the employment of workmen for all work covered by this Agreement in the territory described, the following provisions shall govern
3003. The Employer shall first call upon the Local Union having jurisdiction for such men as the Employer may from time to time need, and the respective Local Union shall furnish to the Employer the required number of qualified and competent workmen
REMEMBER THEY ARE NOW OPENING ONE IN LOS ANGELES AND TARGETING THE NORTHEAST.HOW MUCH MORE OF MEMBERS MONEY WILL FINANCE THIS SCAM.
This scam is something that will effect and so many UBC members across the country as they sit home so Pre Fab walls are made by a c company that is NOT 100% Union. Whose CEO Patrick Flood is on the UBC International LM2 for over $320,000 and has been despite Odom claiming "Patrick joined Jobsite Steal Manufacturing in 2011 when he and and Danny Odom began developing groundbreaking framing solutions. Whose financing in the millions appears to have come from the UBC.Whose shop employees appear to be a majority of apprentices if Union members at all.Whose wage is substantially lower than the job the Pre Fabs are going on UBC such as Vegas wherE the rate appears to be $36.41 with $17.61.It also appears the Vegas CBA for this UBC Hotel declares all pre fab will be done by Vegas UBC members at Vegas rate with benefit hours will go to Vegas funds. I wonder if those that say "Oh this is ok since UBC members are Pre Fabing" would ask those Tenn employees f they would rather Pre Fab at Vegas or Tenn rate??
So we are talking about simple right and wrong and the UBC Brotherhood. We have a UBC funded job where the UBC is bypassing the CBA and NOT paying Vegas Prevailing wage for such a large part of the job. In the Tru Hotel Vegas case it could only have been the UBC who ordered these Pre Fab panels knowing full well it would cheat Vegas UBC Members out of the hours.How is this recovering Market share in that area??How many linear feet of stud wall will Local UBC Carpenters in their own back yard not fabricate.How many job hours will be lost and how many benefit funds will not get hours. The premise of this scam was to compete with the NON UNION stick framers by providing metal wall options and turning wood projects to metal. One has to wonder if each Pre Fab wall sale by a UBC Factory will demand they be installed by ONLY Union workers??. It was not to be used to replace local stud wall fabrication on commercial jobs to cheat area UBC members as well as the Local economy and create a Prevailing wage subterfuge by importing a pre-fab wall system from Tennessee.
PROTECT YOUR JOBS AND BENEFIT HOURS FROM YET ANOTHER UBC SCAM.ARE UBC PRE FABS IN VIOLATION OF YOUR CBA AS WELL??
