    "Sources say", Leary has resigned only as LU608 Recording Secretary. He is still NYCDCC DOO; at least for the moment.

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.
