Page Six

Cue-balls At The District Council
IF it wasn't so tragic, it would be absolutely hilarious. Informed sources at the council are reporting two councils employees, John Thomassen and James O'Reily have shaved off the hair on their heads and removed all the hair from their bodies in order to avoid detection of drug use.

John Thomassen, who is the son of
Peter Thomassen, the former district council president and current assistant supervisor, is alleged to have admitted to drug use after a drug test was ordered. It is not clear if the two men have been suspended or fired.

Since the arrest of Mike Forde and revelations of corruption and drug use, the district council has been placed under "emergency supervision." Vice President Frank Spencer, who
has assumed supervision over the district council ordered drug testing for council employees.

"I find the whole situation disturbing and disheartening to learn about the shaving of heads" a carpenter said speaking on the condition of anonymity, "What the hell is going on at our council, we are completely in the dark."

Hair examination to detect drug abuse is fairly accurate and, in most cases, can trace banned agents that have been used up to a year.

There are no updates or information about this on the councils website.

Spencer who assumed supervision on August 10, said he "will keep the membership updated on a regular basis."

Since the posting of letters by McCarron and Spencer on the councils website, there has not been any "regular" updates on the supervision.

  2. THey should at least take the Jeep away until it is proven that he is sober and off the drugs.

    Shameful that this is allowed to go on for years and years.

  6. There have been accusations that suggest that our union has been infiltrated with people who
    developed severe drug problems. Under normal circumstances addiction is a private and a personal issue.

    What concerns me is that this appeared to be wide spread problem among NYCDCC leadership.

    It suggests that our union was being run by people who had greater urgencies than fighting
    contractor abuse, non-union work, or finding you a job.

    If our leadership was under the influence on "our" time, we have a problem beyond just greed.

    Can you imagine a better way to blackmail leaders of a large trade union? How about inability to
    make decisions? How about being preoccupied with the next fix?

    The list goes on in the many ways things that can go wrong.

    I also think its telling by the drug of choice.

    Cocaine is a party drug used by people with money. I can see young wall street traders on this shit, but a bunch of old office carpenters?

    Maybe their $100,000+ salaries got to their heads?

    This should give all of you INSIGHT to the how your union ran under the Forde Administration.

    Of course there wasn't going to be a drug testing policy!!! It tells me that people in his inner circle
    KNEW Forde was a full blown addict and partied till he was fired.

    You should be asking, "What other rules were modified to fit the needs the administration?" Working long hard hours for the
    sake of the members (to justify a $250,000 salary) doesn't appeared to have been his priority.

    Theonly way I can see this not infuriating you, is if you benefited from having a dopey leader that allowed his friends to do whatever they wanted and you either have a job or worked alot hours because of it.

    I feel like many people benefited from personally knowing that Forde had a problem. That's why his
    addiction is not private or personal, he essentially put this union at risk for years and no one
    cared to stopped it.

    NEXT PHASE AT NYCDCC: Drug testing fall out
    Who partiED?
    Mike Forde (proven) fired
    John Greaney (proven) fired

    John Thomassen (according to 157 blogspot he shaved and waxed all body hair to avoid hair test)

    James O'Reily (according to 157 blogspot he shaved and waxed all body hair to avoid hair test)

    Who's Next?

  7. Greaney has passed several drug tests including indictment. Didn't have to cut his hair or shave his balls. He did not fail therefore concluded HE IS NOT A DRUG ADDICT. No mandatory drug rehab.  You have way too much time on your hands with ALL the posts. I assume that you are out of work and  on the OWL list. It appears that you lost your balls somewhere along the way. It must be tough  livin without your own pair. You're all dick head and we pretty much know who you are. Watch the  step.

    How is it Olaf Olsen ( nephew of Pete Thomasen) got a $12,000. raise and Andre Puertas ( I may have spelled it wrong) who is married to Petes niece ( who also works at the DC) got a $21,000. raise? Both seem to be hard working guys ( although self serving as all hell and secretive just like the rest of them) but who is worth that much of a raise at one clip? Andre was never even a Carpenter and he gets almost 2 grand a month more? Maybe Pete was just giving them a boost before Doug tosses him too, you know taking care of his own.  By the way, can you guys link to the 2008 LM2?

I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
