The Fifth Interim Report Of The Review Officer

This is my Fifth Report as Review Officer, covering June 4, 2012, to December 3, 2012. It summarizes significant events affecting, and undertakings and recommendations regarding, the District Council of Carpenters and its Benefit Funds.

For a variety of reasons, the business and administration of the District Council and Benefit Funds remain on a sound footing. Though both institutions have suffered missteps in the period covered herein, they are ably run by numerous skilled professionals and employees whose yeoman performance and dedication to serving the members goes largely unheralded and even unappreciated.

There are serious challenges that must be met in, among other areas: gaining and implementing new collective bargaining agreements and compliance measures; litigation risks; continuing member apathy; collection of member dues and assessments; organizing; upgrading and gaining the benefits of technology; and improving the democratic system, which is the foundation upon which a bright future must rely.

All of these challenges must be addressed with the knowledge that any failure will likely be exploited by opportunistic racketeers and their associates.

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.
