Will History Repeat Itself?

Stop making me laugh!
This was originally posted on July 18, 2010.

On November 26, 2007, UBC General President Douglas McCarron, acting on a petition, ordered an emergency supervision be imposed on Local 157. McCarron also appointed the UBC’s Eastern District Vice President Frank Spencer to lead this supervision and the District Council’s Executive Secretary-Treasurer, Mike Forde, as his first assistant supervisor, to oversee the orderly restoration of internal self-governance and the responsible management and conduct of the Local’s and the District Council’s business in Local 157. Forde appointed Lawrence D’Errico new Business Manager of Local 157.

Listen to exclusive 2008 audio of former disgraced carpenter president Pete Thomassen, in a rare moment of candor, exposing the phony and politically motivated supervision of Local 157, in order to stop Vice President George Dilacio, from becoming president. By the way, Dilacio was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2009 Forde indictment.

Really, you couldn't make this stuff up...Has the UBC lost all creditability. You gotta laugh at it all!!! 

Be at Monday's meeting to find out if history repeats itself and Local 157 finds itself under supervision because UBC officials will not allow a rank and file member to be nominated President pro tem. Be's gonna be big!

Thomassen said: “I was in the office with Mike (referring to Forde) when McCarron called, He Asked, what is going on with the local? We said George Dilacio was fired as a business agent but he is staying as a vice president, He is elected and we can’t take him out of that position and he is going to become the president."

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.
