      McCarron must be dancing tonight. He will now get local 157 with no fight at all. Sit back and watch as Nee sells out 157 to the UBC. Now he can complete his plan to axe the locals in favor of McCarrons corrupt councils. You just elected a council rat as President of a NY Local. I wonder how many NY members Cary Kane will claim to support now.

      The UBC does not have to work to destroy the Union. The members will do it for him. This forever will be remembered as the biggest blunder the UBC rank and file has ever committed. What a reflection on the membership of NYC.God help you all. Whats next. Will you elect Spencer as EST

      I wonder how many NY members Cary Kane will claim to represent now.

    6. Good luck, Show up on time and do the union work. Everyone will be watching to see if you are guys are real.

      One step at a time.

    7. Nee never hid his support for McCaron and Spencer. Nee never hide his desire to destroy the locals as he will with 157. Nee has admitted before the election to his being a part of the CC4D scam .But he hid it will he and the CC4D were scamming the members.. Herman Benson told you Nee was full of ****.You knew he has been in the Union for less than 5 years. He has proven publicly he has no knowledge of the constitution during the Pro Tem BS. You heard him call any brother and sister on the OWL scum and unskilled. You heard Nee admit he was companyman suck ass. Yet you elected him. The question that will be asked is "how could so many people be so stupid". With the evidence on Nee before the election the answer can only be "Because they are"

    8. rank and file will have a hard time complaining about anything when only 1300 showed up to vote. 334 votes are all he needed to win, what a joke! i know we live a culture that maintains that our votes don't count but the only vote that isn't counted is the one never cast.


    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.
