Little Brother Mike Fights Back

Mike McCarron
Mike McCarron launches website "Stand With Mike" to respond and fight the charges filed against him by his brother, UBC General President Douglas McCarron.

GP McCarron placed the union’s southwest regional council under emergency supervision after allegedly finding that little brother Mike (the council’s executive secretary-‐treasurer) "had been intimidating workers and other individuals and failing to adhere to collective bargaining agreements and UBC rules."

In a July 19 letter, UBC General Vice President Douglas Banes gave Mike Draper, vice president of the Western District affiliated with the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, authority to manage the council in light of reports that regional council Executive Secretary-Treasurer Mike McCarron ran the organization in “a manner detrimental to the welfare and best interest of the Regional council.”

Banes’s letter states that there were reported financial irregularities and malpractice as well as a failure “to assure the performance of collective bargaining agreements.”

According to the letter, Banes also obtained information showing that McCarron intentionally intimidated individuals, ran the regional council undemocratically, and withheld information from other council leaders.

In addition, Banes learned that McCarron was improperly spending the council’s assets and interfering with the operations of other organizations. Banes also stated in the letter that McCarron’s behavior is “erratic and unstable,” leading him to conclude that the executive secretary-treasurer is “unable to properly and lawfully perform your duties.”

Mike McCarron, who is the brother of UBC General President Douglas McCarron, has served as executive secretary-treasurer of the regional council for more than 10 years, and has launched a website in response to the charges.

Mike wrote, "As you may have heard, the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters was placed under supervision by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, on July 22, 2013."

"I am in shock over this and other actions that the General President has taken against me and the Regional Council. These actions have nothing to do with the Brotherhood or the Council. The unfortunate truth behind these actions is a dispute between brothers that has bled into the Brotherhood."

"I hope you will stand with me during these difficult times. I am sincerely grateful for your trust and support."

  2. Its too bad that this is standard operation procedure for Doug McCarron who levels false charges against anyone who goes against him in any way! Doug McCarron must go if the brotherhood has any chance at surviving and prospering!! If this is true that he shut down the Southwest Regional Council over a family dispute this is such an abuse of power! We need to get Doug out of the union!

  3. Hey Mike I like the contract negotiations that were described if thats true. Any how youll have to do more than cry to recieve sympathy and support.Yo will have to file charges against your brother rat him out for every dirty deed and spill all the names of whore politicians and gangsters that hes affiliated with. if not your another mutt from the UBC and you should enjoy the ride down the toilet. Good Luck I suggest a little testosterone to pump up those manly feelings.

  4. Will Mikey no. 2 (McDummy Junior) mount a more effective Appeal of his veto of Employment than Bilello.

    Stay tuned, should be interesting to see if he retains effective legal counsel or if in defending himself he exposes big brother's misadventures & illegal and criminal behavior.

  5. As a rank a file member who is fighting NWRCC EST Doug Tweedy(one of big Doug's loyal henchmen) I hope you take this oppotunity as another member said to do and come clean. You will receive broad support if and only if you lay it all on the line and stand with the rank and file in our fight for transparency and democracy in our union. Don't be another piece of cannon fodder for the Fox News crowd of the anti-union right.

  8. Until ALL Rank and File stand up to the 1% running the UNIONS and elect NON STAFF as Delegates WE have No chance for change. With the new look of the Carpenters Union,the race to get into the inner circle and then sit back and say LOOK at me. You can get their by sucking up,or being a Yes man, or be in the back ground out of site just digging for information on someone. Its all about POWER and how the 1% see themselves. We need leadership Now and All Rank/File need to stand strong, and for What the Union has taught US. Remember I can't do it,You can't do it but WE can do it, and that is to return to Respecting each other, helping each other and finally returning to a Brotherhood of CARPENTERS.SO LETS STOP THE ABUSE and face the task too do.

  9. That's all well & good.

    Please be advised as to what went down with the members voice slate of reform candidates in the latest 157 delegate election. That was the promised end result, which quickly was forthrightly dispelled because of another power grab @157.

    One hit after another, while under monitor>ship. This is disgraceful.

    Thank the Dirty Thirty3 & their leaders.

  10. This Friday August 16, 2013, at 7:30 pm Mike McCarron will be at Local 1506, located at 5164 Santa Monica Blvd in Los Angeles. Mike McCarron is the president of Local 1506 and is a delegate to the Southwest Regional Council. Mike will be discussing the charges, the emergency supervision of the SWRCC, and the personal history between him and Doug that has lead up to the false charges and improper emergency supervision.

    Rumor has it that the International and its general counsel are scrambling trying to come up with a way to put Local 1506 into Emergency Supervision. Their intent is to further silence Mike McCarron. The July 22, 2013, Emergency Supervision of the SWRCC was to prevent Mike from speaking to the delegates of the SWRCC on July 25, 2013.

    COME ONE COME ALL, RAIN OR SHINE, TRUSTEESHIP OR NO TRUSTEESHIP. Depending on the status of 1506, Mike will either be in the meeting hall, the parking lot or the sidewalk out in front of the local, if the gates to the parking lot are locked.

    Fun Fact: how can they put local 1506 into trusteeship when Doug McCarron is conductor of the executive committee of 1506.

  11. Mike McCarron's daughter, Michelle, was set to join the Carpenters Union and become a member of the brotherhood, so she could help her father during his UBC trial September 9-13, 2013. THE UBC IS HELL BENT ON STOPPING HER, even though contractors are willing to hire her. Please visit www.standwithmike.org for more information. Thank you.

  16. Doug McCarron is clueless! Has no leadership abilities, no organizing success, no stomach for individual Union Member rights, surrounds himself with fellow Geldings (no balls), no vision other than how to help himself to more while trampling the core rights of the individual Union Member, how sad that total power has taken control with absolutely No Results! Do the right thing and Resign Now !

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.
