Council Withdraws Petition For Clarification

The District Council of Carpenters has withdrawn its petition to United States District Court Judge Richard Berman to clarify how to interpret and enforce manning provisions set forth in the Collective Bargaining Agreement with the Association of Wall and Ceiling Industries of New York, Inc.

This request pertains to the May 26, 2009 “Final Order and Judgment of Contempt and Remedy” regarding the abolishment of contractors being able to make unlimited requests for particular union carpenters, by name, from the OWL. This order stipulates that the total carpenter workforce on a job site selected by the contractor shall not exceed 67% and 33% provided by the union, however if the number of carpenters required at a particular job site does not divide evenly into this formula then the contractor may select an additional carpenter whose prior employment satisfies paragraph 3 b (iii) of this Order.

  3. Headline said" council withdraws petition clarification". How come when I go to the NYCDCC site I don't see this posted on the site?


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.
