Lebo Letter to Judge Berman

On June 1, Brother Bill Lebo sent Judge Richard M. Berman a letter in response to the UBC's proposed restructuring plan for the NYCDCC.

Lebo, among other things vehemently objects to the:

  • Reducing the carpenter trade to specialties.
  • Creation of Local Union 395 and the Heavy construction local as a specialty/ company locals.
  • Decreasing of the jurisdictional areas of the locals affected by this plan.
  • Ending of the 50-50 manpower rule.
  • Lack of information disseminated by the UBC to the membership.
  • Does not want a corrupt UBC General President and his cronies negotiating our contracts, and believe the negotiations and finalization should wait until such time as elected officials of the NYCDCC can be installed.

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.
