Contract Negotiations Update

Crain's is reporting that...The executive board of the New York City District Council of Carpenters is expected to vote Today on a contract proposal by the Association of Wall-Ceiling and Carpentry Industries, a collection of contractors that employs more than half of the union's members. If the union board OKs the deal, the agreement could be presented to the union's 100-member delegate body for approval.

The WC&C proposal is posted on the NYCDC website and includes "Full Mobility."

It's not clear if the union's rank-and-file members will be given the chance to ratify the contract.

All members of local unions affiliated with the District Council, as well as employees of the District Council, Benefit Funds and local unions, are invited to attend tonights Delegate Body meeting.

The delegate meeting will be held in the meeting space of the school on the second floor starting at m 5:00 p.m. Please have your current union ready for presentation at the door to gain admission.


  1. What crains isn't reporting becomes the real story here.



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.
