Page Six

We hear... THAT Joe Firth is calling for early elections in Local 608. Seems he and his supporters are not happy that Firth was fired and made a scrapegoat for violations of the job referral rules.

Firth is rumored to mount a challenge newly installed Martin Devereaux for local 608 president.

The November and December local 608 meetings had to be shut down and police called in to avoid a riot. Spencer and Devereaux sent the below letters to 608 members, in an effort to calm things down.

Spencer Letter


  1. The whole thing is a BIG JOKE and continue embarrassment for Spencer.  When are the feds going after the 608 corrupt deadbeats?  What this is about is a bunch of spoiled 608 BAs who had it good under Forde for years and now are turning against each other.  Nothing noble about the situation.

    "<span style="">violations of the job referral rules"----???  </span>
    <span style="">In addition to wrecking union car, refusing breathalyzer, losing driving license, had Greaney cover-up crash from district council (supposedly), continue driving union cars w/out license, risked making district council liable until the Forde gig was up.  This man has some fucking balls.  You get caught & FIRED for fucking union members and he then gathers a bunch of THUGS and calls for elections!  Take a look at where your union  is.  </span>

    Obviously he is pissed, he used to fuck around for years, got all his friends and family jobs, did shit and got paid over 100K/year.  How do you think he feels having to go back on the tools.    The worst part is that no present 608 officer is WORTH a squirt of piss  to vote on.  I wish Billy Davenport or Gene Clarke <span style="font-weight: normal;"> would run <span style="font-weight: normal;">and take the rug under their feet.</span></span>

    OR , put this local under supervision and get rid of all of them!!!  LONG OVERDUE!

  2. screw him good riddance...the same should happen in all locals


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.
