District Council Welcomes New Director of Operations Matthew Walker

From NYCDC -- Retired Major Matthew Walker has been selected as the Director of Operations for the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America District Council of New York City & Vicinity.  After serving over 26 years in the New Jersey State Police he will begin his new position on March 28, 2011.

During his tenure with the New Jersey State Police Major Walker investigated various criminal enterprises including narcotics and official misconduct.  He then conducted and supervised high profile internal investigations and was a key liaison with the United States Department of Justice Independent Mentoring Team which implemented a federal consent decree for approximately 9 years with the State of New Jersey.  The decree was successfully satisfied and dissolved in 2009.

(John's Note: Why no mention of D'Errico)


  1. Great, now we have yet another yokel that does not understand the industry - but he is going to be in charge. Hopefully, he does clean things up a bit.

    re not mentioning D-Errico - that is law - they cannot mention why D-Errico is no longer employes, otherwise he would be able to sue the NYCDC. It is common practice. He left so that he could spend more time with his family.

  2. Hopefully, he does clean things up a bit.

    Not going to rely on hope.


  4. lets send out an invitation for him to be invited and present at mr.walsh's meeting to introduce himself to the membership and take questions and answers

  5. Who found walter Mathews? Why wasnt the position available to members? I dont think a stranger will understand our need. He never swung a hammer, or froze on a highrize in the dead of winter. Does he know what it is like to work your ass off, yet be laid off anyway?

    He has qualifications in human resources and creative writing. Were these mentioned when this job was advertised. Did he have to go through the three ring circus that our brothers and sisters are going through to become organizer. Something smells funny here. There is no mentioned of how he came to have this job. Reason of deduction would say, he's a Spencer crony, jersey and new jersey. maybe he's the man that will make sure full mobility gets through with his creative writing. Fellas,this guy we have to keep our eyes on. God Bless OUR UNION!


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.
