"Hello Brothers and Sisters. My name is Jeffrey Nunes. I’m a 3rd year apprentice in NYC, a passionate carpenter, and a militant advocate for workers. The New York City District Council of Carpenters is coordinating to expel me from our union because of my opposition to a contract that threatens the livelihoods of 20,000 carpenters. The new contract brings massive cuts ($16-$33/hr cut in wages and benefits), reduces pension contributions dramatically for 60% of all carpenters, and introduces a new SECOND TIER CARPENTER that does the SAME work as a Journeyperson for $33 less.
The working carpenter in NYC is NOT able to VOTE on contracts and we received NO prior NOTIFICATION that a contract deal had been reached. The contract was leaked to me, which I then started to distribute and inform members about one week before it was signed. I also called a rally in front of the union hall the same day it would be signed. They are targeting me for fighting back against the contract, despite the fact that the majority of carpenters are unhappy with it.
If you have a minute, please read and sign this petition to show them that the majority do not support charges being brought against me. This is a witch hunt against carpenters who choose to fight for the union, while the council and McCarron try to market us as ever cheaper commodities.
I also urge members to raise a motion at their local to send letters declaring their disapproval of these charges. If you want a draft motion then reach out to me in a private message and I will provide all details as well as an address for it to be sent to.
Every signature counts and is deeply appreciated.
