Report To The UBCJA Hearings Committee

Below is testimony with links to exhibits given by Phil Newkirk to the Hearing Committee. Mr. Newkirk is a thirty year UBC member who currently serves as an Assistant to General President Douglas McCarron.

(John's note. The report fails to mention, Director of Operations Maurice Leary is the Recording Secretary of local 608. Leary’s lack of knowledge about the union car crash, suspended license and local 157 ba's AWOL is not creditable. Newkirk also fails to hold Pete Thomassen,  Dennis Sheild and OWL supervisor, Scott Danielson accountable. Fails to mention how in November of 2004 Thomassen obstructed Mack's investigation of Tri-built and hired Kroll to take over the investigation from Mack. Fails to mention the contempt charge and how the district council officers "engaged in, at least, willful ignorance" of the corrupt conduct by companies like Tri-Built and On Par, which are believed to be two of the six unnamed contractors in the indictment and were notoriously known among carpenters as "cash" companies, “yet permitted to work corrupt for years.”) Also no mention of Benefit Fund employee corruption.

Report to the Hearings Committee III.doc


  1. Heres your chance to fill in the details!

    In January 2009  Joe Firth was operating a Union vehicle and he totaled the car. Joe had his license suspended for refusing to take a breathalyzer test after totaling the union car.

    Firth continued to operate a union car without a license for many months.

    John Greaney knew about Firth totaling of the car, his suspended license and its alleged he told no one at the council.

    The council is claiming that they just found out about this accident and suspension of drivers license on September 3, 2009.

    Who is telling the truth? Did anyone else know about the totaling of the car? Was this common knowledge?

    Post what you know about this incident!

  2. i think it was a MAYBACH.he hit a table saw in the middle of the street.

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.
