Booted disgraced former leaders Mike Bilello and Bill Lebo.
Sightings...sightings...Disgraced scandal scared former District Council leaders MIKE BILELLO & BILL LEBO were spotted at last Wednesdays Delegate Body meeting sitting in the members gallery.

On Monday, April 29, 2013 Bilello, the former carpenter boss, was booted from his post by the court appointed Review Officer (RO) Dennis Walsh for violating several union rules — including directing a schedule pay raise into the Welfare Fund without proper authorization and letting a suspended union member work at the Javits Center and then lie about it.

Bilello & Lebo were elected on December 15, 2011 to head the New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters after vowing several reforms to the union —including saving the out of work list and contract ratification by the membership. The two former leaders reneged on those vows and ironically Bilello was the man who presided over the destruction of the out of work list, by negotiating a contract that includes full mobility and forcing it on the membership, despite the membership rejecting it in March 2012.

Bilello's running mate and former president and assistant Bill Lebo, also got the boot and was forced to resign last September, after receiving a notice of possible veto from the RO, amid allegations of inappropriate behavior and lying about it.

Sources said, Bilello is planning to appeal his veto in an effort to get his job back. The two disgraced former leaders sat quietly as they witnessed a properly run meeting by the new Executive Secretary Treasurer (EST) Pro Tem Stephen McInnis.



  2. Rumor has it Biello was looking for work with contractors at Ground Zero.

  3. The Disgraced become the graduated, All in a day w Bull elo's bizzaro world.

  4. Re: "a properly run meeting by the new Executive Secretary Treasurer (EST) Pro Tem Stephen McInnis."

    Political Director/Council President/Executive Secretary Treasurer Stephan McInnis ran the meeting in which the so called Rules and Procedures for CBA ratification were supposedly written, and the Wall-Ceiling agreement/Full Mobility was forced through, subverting the will of the Membership, and in violation of the UBC Constitution, NYCDCC Bylaws, NY State, and Federal Statutes.

    You yourself, John Musumeci, as Delegate criticized Steve McInnis for his abysmal record as President of the Delegate Body, as he trampled members rights and Robert's Rules of order, from denying your questions about the Executive Committee meeting, to the farcical process of validating the Review Officer's agenda by role call vote.

    If McInnis "properly runs" meetings post Full Mobility ratification, it is because Ron Tutor and Douglas J. McCarron got what they wanted, and it's just small potatoes from here on out.

    But what does it matter, and how are you affected, anyway?

  5. President of the delegate body huh. Now we know that Walsh's memo to the DC stating ratification rules WHICH WERE AN ABANDONED EFFORT BY THE DELEGATE BODY is his exalted right to claim.

  6. McGuiness is a useless shitstain + anyone who slobbers up to this mutt will be considered scum like all the rest. eat shit + die,all of you. a once mighty union is on its legs so watch your backs when the real men wake up. McGuiness is nothing but SCUM !

    1. one piece of shit marches in one after another all under walshs watch, great job dw

  7. What about a Local 157 Blogspot article on how and why Review Officer Dennis Walsh distracted the Membership with shiny objects, while the boss wrecking ball was allowed to demolish 395 Hudson in a fell swoop-- or was/is wreaking vengeance on arch-enemy Bilello & Company the end-all for this site?

  8. make no mistake walsh + co. you are the worst type of scum + the ballgame is young yet. legal shyts never win in the end. you are scum

  9. lawyers are fraudsters. how the hell did this McGinnis guy get in there?what is his claim to fame here? he drove for FORDE? how the hell does this qualify this guy? you gonna tell me that he "sees nothing,hears nothing,knows nothing"?what a crock of shit this is. the forces that be are making sure we collapse so McCarron and that little bleach blonde weasel,et al, can kill us.ENOUGH BROTHERS AND SISTERS. lets get rid of half these useless "service reps"(only there to waste our money,these fucking total morons running the whole show and return this union to the members.let us make the determinations to run this ship.we are used to obstacles, as we deal with them all day long to get a job done.its nothing for the people who actually work for a living.

  10. Good luck Mike- You tried to do the right thing, but it was not the legal thing. For your family, I hope that you find something. Keep trying to keep the union out of the abyss in any way that you can. Mr. Musumeci us doing the same- the real problem is that the socialism of your government has destroyed unions by paying benefits for everyone who works off the books. Watch the Gangs of New York -you are now the Natives.


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.
