Rank and File Carpenter SDNY Motion in response to 2-27-13 NYCDC/WC&C Full Mobility Proposal

Dear Judge Berman: The February 27, 2013 “Proposed Order” on Job Rules and Anti-Corruption Compliance Procedures under Collective Bargaining Agreement, as drafted by the NYCDCC in-house counsel Murphy, in concert with the UBCJA International’s oversight, and the Wall-Ceiling &Carpentry Industries of New York, Inc. is a smokescreen which by design is for the express purpose of steering the Court away from multiple violations of local, State & Federal laws, long settled NLRB Board precedent, Appellate Court & United States Supreme Court precedent via the stick & carrot approach for contract negotiations for new Multi-Employer Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBA’S.)


  1. As a matter of law, the 6th Circuit erred in stating “looking at the actual mechanics of the loss of theright to elect a business representative, the district court reasoned it was the adoption of the Council by-laws, not the reorganization that eliminated the Local’s right to elect a business representative. Indeed, it was the Capital District Council by-laws that created the right in the firstplace”.

    The District Courts reasons are not in accordance with the text of the NLRA or its Legislative history. No other Circuit Court has made such a similar ruling, nor could they as it is factually and legally incorrect,and can therefore not stand. The Sixth Circuit’s decision in Dresden Local 267 issued on April 27, 1993,some 15-months after the Lechmere decision issued on January 27, 1992.

    The UBCJA International under Sigurd Lucassen and subsequently under Douglas J. McCarron has perpetuated this myth, this fallacy of so called law since the decision issued on April 27, 1993.

    The 6th Circuit Court clearly erred in stating that the mechanical right of the loss of the right to elect a business representative…was the adoption of the Council By-Laws.

    The Council By-Laws did not create the right to vote, the United States Congress did so.


  2. Dear McCarron

    A Cry for Vengeance

    1(To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;

    2For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.

    3They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.

    4For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer.

    5And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.

    6Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.

    7When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.

    8Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

    9Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.

    10Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.

    11Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.

    12Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.

    13Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.

    14Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.

    15Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.

    16Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.

    17As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.

    18As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.

    19Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.

    20Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.

  3. 16Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.

    1.3 million members in the UBC 25 years ago, now down to 475k. After adjustments for inflation, the reduced workforce of the McCarron regime has produced triple the dollar value of projects, so productivity is not the issue here. Greed is!

    100% full mobility is not for the working man who has made these productivity gains, it's for the corporate chieftans so they can line their pockets with ever more and fleece those from whom the profits derive - the working man trying to feed a family.

    Shame on you Doug McCarron, you wicked, evil man may a cancer come upon you, for you hear not the cry's of those you torment with your evil ways - so let it be done.

  4. Takk dere. Boken ser stor, bare bestilte den. Singelen side, "10 Rules for bygging Arbeidsbenker" er verdt prisen på boken i seg selv.
