Bilello Administration Like Gang Who Can’t Shoot Straight

Click to enlarge.
John's note: At last Wednesdays Delegate Body meeting among other things, I brought this matter of a nonexistent "stamp plan"to the attention of EST Bilello. Also when I questioned Bilello that he had no authority to sign a contract which allocates $2.12 per-hour to the Welfare Fund, (see section 8 page 32) he looked like a deer caught in the headlights and was unable to answer a simply question. This $2.12 allocation was never debated, approved or voted on by the Delegate Body, the only Delegate vote that ever took place regarding the WC&C contract was on a four page MOU on August 12, 2013. The agreement submitted to judge Berman has never been submitted to the delegate body for a ratification vote.

Side Letter to Agreement with a term of July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2017

This letter will serve to memorialize our understanding with respect to clarifying certain provisions of the parties Agreement with a term of July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2017 that we executed on March 12, 2013.

First, with respect to Article VII-Job Referral System, it is the parties' understanding that the remedy under Section 6(b) of reinstating the 50:50 hiring ratio means that such remedy would require the individual Employer to hire at least fifty percent (50%) of Carpenters from the District Council's job referral list (a/k/a Out of Work List or OWL) without the ability to make requests not withstanding anything to the contrary in Section 6(b) or Section 4 of that Article VII.

And second, the parties agree that Section 13 of Article XVI concerning a "stamp plan" is no longer in effect and that Section 13, is unenforceable because it is moot.

If the above accurately reflects our understanding please sign in the space indicated below and return a countersigned copy of this letter to me.

  3. 50% - 50% as a "REMEDY" for a Dozen Years + of FAILED D.C. Policies and Violations of the Federal Consent Decree & Out of Work List Referral Hall procedures, which then increased to 67% under Judge Haight's direction post remand of the 2nd Cir. Ct. of Appeals, thus being the exact and very thing that brought down Mike Forde.

    EVERY TIME the "DIRECT COMPANY HIRE RATIO" is INCREASED, THE RANK & FILE WORKERS GET SCREWED AND THE FRAUD & LOSSES TO THE BENEFIT FUNDS INCREASES WITH THE DC & CONTRACTOR ASSOC. requests for ever more Control of Hiring.

    Mike Bilello must have slipped through the cracks here and the incompetence gets worse by the day. It's all good your Honor, Trust Us

  5. When did MWA get a ten year proposition. When is slipped into court transcripts by Murphy. Forget about the time these contracts run they were never delivered in whole to the membership for consumption. MOU's that exist as a 4page adendum don't cut it. Maybe for you??????????

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.
