Page Six

We hear... THAT the feds are not finished investigating the scandal-scared New York City District Council of Carpenters. Informed sources say a grand jury is hearing testimony against Pete Thomassen (what's left of disgraced Mike Fordes "Unity Team") ,for among other things, allegedly authorizing huge pay raises without delegate approval to his secretary and his son, ("the hairless wonder"), the hiring of Council employees with close ties to 
Thomassen, personal use of Council property, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on 5 star restaurants, hotels, first class plane tickets, misuse and fraud regarding the Carpenters Charity and Relief Fund and having work done on his house by a union contractor in exchange for letting the contractor pay employees at his work sites below minimum wage and off the books.

Sources also say the feds are very interested in past and present Councils employees seeking to know how they were hired and under what circumstances they were placed on the payroll.

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.
