Bilello Hires Big Gun to deal with Scandal

Hypocrite Bilello hires Big Gun.  
Informed sources say...THAT Executive Secretary-Treasurer Michael Bilello has retained an attorney, Guy Petrillo, (Petrillo Klein & Boxer) a former Chief of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney's office in the Southern District of New York to handle the possible veto action by Review Officer (RO) Dennis Walsh.

On Wednesday March 27, Walsh slapped Bilello with an eight-count notice of possible veto.

Bilello had until April 9, 2013 to answer the complaint and to deliver a written submission to the RO stating any facts, law or arguments which might be relevant to consideration of this matter.

Bilello's big gun attorney requested an extension to April 22nd, to respond to the complaint the source said.

At last month's delegate body meeting Bilello told the delegates, "I'm not stepping down," when I asked if he would follow past practice and lead by example and voluntarily take a leave of absence until the matter of this veto is cleared up.

During the two-and-a-half year emergency supervision imposed on the District Council by the UBC procedures were put in place for dealing with actions taken by the RO. Past practice by Supervisor Frank Spencer was to temporary suspend any council employee after receiving a notice of possible action from the RO.

Last week I asked Bilello to give the delegates an update on his veto notice and asked what are the current procedures for handling notices of action by the RO. Bilello stated, there is no update "it's status quo" and "there are no procedures" in place for handling notices by the RO.

Despite transparency claims Bilello continues to act hypocritically, he has failed to informed the delegates or membership about receiving the notice of possible of action.

Last month, I brought the subject up and asked if he would read the veto letter to the delegates and he refused. "I am not required to read it," Bilello said.

I then moved to have the veto letter read to the delegate body and incredibly the delegates voted 53 to 22,  to not hear the contents of the veto letter.


  1. So in other words bilello failed in carrying out his duties as EST and has committed numerous violations...And he also failed to respond to the RO Complaint deadline of april 9 2013?

    1. Who is paying for Bilello's lawyer ?


  3. Walsh must veto Biello or he loses all credibility.

  4. Nice work if you can get it. Wow. The nycdcc is running this ship into the ground + their families will suffer the most. The powers at the nycdcc produce nothing + do it off the backs of hard working carpenters. The hottest places in hell are being saved for these motherfuckers. When you produce nothing + act like wannabees usally your kids are spoiled + all fucked up. No one escapes karma so I know your all fucking on the decline. Remember, YOU PRODUCE NOTHING + ARE SCUM. EVERYONE KNOWS IT INCLUDING YOURSELVES. DROP FUCKING DEAD!

    1. I like the hate.Your a viciuos son of a bitch and it works for these cum dumpsters.Karma is going to run over them all. Just think while theyre stealing their wives are fucking someone else now thats rich. Fuck all the shitbags at the NYCDCC. You will get yours!!!

  5. Win or lose this legal hack is now going to be owed a favor. Send someone down to the school or the nycdcc + it will all be aproved by the sqeeky clean ro. Gotta love it or fucking hate it. The nycdcc + the ro are creating very,very angry carpenters. Who are the very angry carpenters ? Go ahead + make my day.

  6. (ignorantia legis neminem excusat) Latin for: Ignorance is No Excuse

    Proverbs 13:18-20
    18: Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction; but he that regardgeth reproof shall be honoured.
    19: The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul; but it is abomination to fools, to depart from evil.
    20: He that walketh with wise men shall be wise; but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

    Mike - You have walked with fools, heeding their advice and turning away from your stated belief's & what you stood for during your campaign and you have failed to perform or stand firm for the men & woman of this District Council. Your professed ignorance of right & wrong and your arrogance in refusing correction is disturbing.

    Proverbs 18:21
    Death & Life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

    Please resign, for your own sake and ours.

    Any Questions? Funny how the words in the Bible (the cheapest book in Barens & Noble & the one least read) ring so true that everyone just ignores them. Hey, let's have another Town Hall and create new rules, regulations, by-laws while we ignore the patently obvious words above.

    Few things worse in life than a liar or a thief, but when you are both - the time to go is long over-due!

    When you engage in a scheme with the International, Wall & Ceiling, BCA etc. & the Welfare Fund Fiduciaries & Trustees to extort $165M to $200M in contractual pay raises which is by its very definition the essence of criminal racketeering and the Judge issues some b.s. order for best practices in the hopes that they can persuade the moronic council delegates (many of whom are illiterate or close to it) to vote to cement the racketeering into policy so the court & the lawyers at the DOJ/USO can escape having to prosecute the offenders to keep their monthly billings going, then you got a real problem in that the lawyers & the court are as bad as those doing racketeering.

    It is amazing how stupid people are that they continually fall for this bullshit time and time again. And you all wonder why the lawyers having been picking the District Council pockets clean for 23-1/2 years....Really, get a clue... you should all be going for someones throat about now

  7. some type of catastrophic karma will strike these crooks sooner or later. they probably believe that they are all impervious to disaster. Just a matter of time.... bad juju is stalking each and every one of them. When they fade away, most don't hear about it. When bad things happen most of the info is suppressed. This bird Biello has bad mojo 'cause he is so hypocritical.. The others were just straight up crooks. Biello seems to be the spawn of Cash McCarron. Subterfuge , backslapping, and destruction of the underpinning of basic unionism all funded by the hardworking rank and file. Nothing creates bad vibes X 10 like hypocrisy.

  8. What is needed here is a return back to the Judeo-Christian founding principles of this Nation, centered on Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness (defined as the right to seek, hold & obtain property).

    Life is at the forefront, then Liberty follows. If you don't believe in Life, then you won't support Liberty. If you don;t support Life & Liberty, then you won't support Property or the rights which follow therefrom.

    The contract(s), your CBA's are property. Under the Second Circuit case, Tropiano:I) 2403 -Hobbs Act—Extortion By Force, Violence, or Fear

    In order to prove a violation of Hobbs Act extortion by the wrongful use of actual or threatened force, violence, or fear, the following questions must be answered affirmatively:

    3. Did the defendant induce or attempt to induce the victim to give up property or property rights?
    "Property" has been held to be "any valuable right considered as a source of wealth." United States v. Tropiano, 418 F.2d 1069, 1075 (2d Cir. 1969) (the right to solicit garbage collection customers). "Property" includes the right of commercial victims to conduct their businesses. See United States v. Zemek, 634 F.3d 1159, 1174 (9th Cir. 1980) (the right to make business decisions and to solicit business free from wrongful coercion) and cited cases). It also includes the statutory right of union members to democratically participate in union affairs. See United States v. Debs, 949 F.2d 199, 201 (6th Cir. 1991) (the right to support candidates for union office); United States v. Teamsters Local 560, 550 F. Supp. 511, 513-14 (D.N.J. 1982), aff'd, 780 F.2d 267 (3rd Cir. 1985) (rights guaranteed union members by the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act, 29 U.S.C. § 411).

    The over-riding Answer to the above Question as applicable to the 60-Delegates vote for the Bilello-WC & C 8-22-12 MOU is an emphatic "yes".

    Stipulation & Order 5(b)(i)(2)

    The Review Officer must be given prior notice of, and is granted the authority to review, all contracts or proposed contracts on behalf of the District Council (except for Collective Bargaining Agreements)

    5(b)(ii)(2) & (4)

    (2) The Review Officer is granted the authoirty to review all contracts

    (4) The Review Officer is granted the authority to Review all changes to the Benefit Fund Trust agreements, and any other rules, policies, or practices

    1) What part of the "except for" qualification regarding CBA negotiation does the R.O. fail to comprehend? H'mmm.

    2) The "except for" qualification also via default would appear to include
    a) Babysitting the EST Bilello and;
    b) Lying to the rank & file member and/or the Court in regard to EST Bilello's malfeasance in office, or it "would appear" that way....

    The R.O. is to have no part whatsoever in Contract Negotiations. Yet, it is he who via his interim Reporting to the Federal District Court clearly & unequivocally to extort the members pay raises, guaranteed by Section 8 and to illegally transfer said monies to the direct control of the Welfare Fund Fiduciaries/Trustees (alleged, not proved to be trustworthy individuals) and to their legal counsel McGuire's control.

    The 60-Dlegates voting for the Illegal confiscation of said monies, FORMER est Bilello and the RO and the Fiduciaries/Trustees & McGuire are each individually and all jointly responsible and guilty of Criminal Racketeering.

    No mincing words, no soft sell here, no re-telling what happened, no use of phrases like appears, no more bullshit........all of them are guilty and all of them should be so charged. Theft is theft plain & simple & Dennis conducted this show from the get go. He convicts himself by his own words in his reports to the Court.

    Extortion is a crime. When you do it over state lines as part of a larger scheme to defraud the hard working men & woman of the D.C., it qualifies as criminal racketeering under Federal law.


    The second question--whether Varity's deception violated ERISA imposed fiduciary obligations--calls for a brief, affirmative answer. ERISA requires a "fiduciary" to "discharge his duties with respect to a plan solely in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries." ERISA §404(a).

    To participate knowingly and significantly in deceiving a plan's beneficiaries in order to save the employer money at the beneficiaries' expense, is not to act "solely in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries."

    As other courts have held, "[l]ying is inconsistent with the duty of loyalty owed by all fiduciaries and codified in section 404(a)(1) of ERISA," Peoria Union Stock Yards Co. v. Penn Mut. Life Ins. Co., 698 F. 2d 320, 326 (CA7 1983). See also Central States, 472 U. S., at 570-571 (ERISA fiduciary duty includes common law duty of loyalty); Bogert & Bogert, Law of Trusts and Trustees §543, at 218-219 (duty of loyalty requires trustee to deal fairly and honestly with beneficiaries); 2A Scott & Fratcher, Law of Trusts §170, pp. 311-312 (same); Restatement (Second) of Trusts §170 (same).

  11. To participate knowingly and significantly in deceiving a plan's beneficiaries in order to save the employer money at the beneficiaries' expense, is not to act "solely in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries."

    As other courts have held, "[l]ying is inconsistent with the duty of loyalty owed by all fiduciaries and codified in section 404(a)(1) of ERISA," Peoria Union Stock Yards Co. v. Penn Mut. Life Ins. Co., 698 F. 2d 320, 326 (CA7 1983).

    So, the corrupt Wall & Ceiling Contractor Association, the Oliveri-Genovese connestion continues...

    Now, who is saving the Money here? Oh yeah, that would be the Employers via their direct theft from your Wages, so they don't have to front the cost(s) associated with Unfunded Liabilities as related to the under-performing assets held in trust which are controlled by the alleged Fiduciary's.

    Under PPA 2006 and under relevant Sup. Ct. precedent case law, when the Welfare Funds (or the other funds) assets are under-performing below the established thres-holds of 80% (endangered) & 65% (critical) status, it is the Signatory Employers who are required to make up the shortfall.

    What the R.O., McGuire & WC & C and the 60-corrupt Delegates have done here via the illegal re-allocation clause, Section 8 is to make you Fund the Unfunded Obligations of the Signatory Employers and that my friends is clearly illegal. The causes of action for criminal indictments are many - if only Ben Tirrance & Preet Bashara in the DOJ's United States Attorneys Office woud get off their dead asses and do their damn jobs.

    If you don;t veto Bilello & each & all of the 60-offedning delegates who supported this extirtion scam, you, Dennis will have lost every ounce of credibility you ever had or held, so do the right thing.

    Have a nice day!

  12. do you really think the fuckin govt. is gonna do anything to help us?they are sleeping with McCarron and the ro and the ..... so on and so on. its all designed to steal OUR money. BEND OVER FOLKS.OPEN WIDE FOR CHUNKY. we are fucked

  13. well its nice to see that people are beginning to pay attention. now when we have a rally outside of the district council maybe more that a few hundred will show their voices. if we continue to get 300-400 out of 20000 members at these rallies McCarron and the rest of the fuckin thieves up there will keep laughing all the way to their banks.

  14. Hah, rally, you couldn't get your mother to show up at a rally you fuck bags. Fuckin John Mosemechi has nothing better to do with his time then try to smear Bilellos good name. Constant attacks on Mike since before the election. Fuck you John your a parasite as are all the rest of you fuckin losers

    1. Good name ? LOL ! Shit, he was gonna let the rank and file vote. Here is a guy who was rubb'in elbows with the top dogs in Carpenters for a Democratic Union and he has taken the same route as Ron Carey with Teamsters for a Democratic Union. People like this cut the legs out from being a union man. They should never take the mantle of being a union " leader " if they can't handle the heat. Smart enough to get there, but then the moral compass disintegrates. Step aside Biello and let a true union man have at it. There are others who won't melt . That is the test of a true union man. Gene Debs never melted ! But of course you ain't anything like Mr. Debs...

    2. what about your mother ,fuck bag? why don't you get people to show or do you not give a shit that the district council is being hijacked by the people who said they are here to push TRANSPARENCY and then went in the opposite direction ,with the blessing of mccarrons bleach blonde little weasel? YOU ARE THE LOSER

  15. Veritas est justitiae mater...... Truth is the Mother of Justice

    EST Bilello has got to go. He does not possess the temperment, the mental acuity or ability to lead anyone.

    His continued belligerance, arrogance and ignorance in reading or following the command & dictates within the by-laws, delegating tasks as a comptentent executive and following them through to completion is patently evident for all those paying attention.

    We, the rank & file members pay him a lot of money to pay attention - more money than we pay the R.O. by comparison of his draw. Given that the R.O. has had to literally babysit this fool from the get go, day one if you prefer, it's quite apparent that Bilello is more aply fit for the field and being "on the tools" where the juvenile ranting, raving and scream fests belong. He can't handle a professional work environment & is quite simply in over his head at every level.

    Not vetoing Bilello condones more of the same malfeasance & corruption present only within the Forde administration and Dennis Walsh promised us a whole lot more when appointed in 2010.

    You've given him ample opportunity to prepare for the task at hand, a full year + prior to his swearing in & 16+ months since, nearing 30-months total and it's a pretty ugly track record to date.

    You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink....the dog won't hunt; need we go on?

  16. my assistant was wanting MI DHS-1514 yesterday and discovered a company with lots of fillable forms . If you have been needing MI DHS-1514 also , here's a


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.
