When I first saw this video I tried to decide which part was of the most value and importance to the rank and file of the UBC and labor as a whole to view.
Was it Doug McCarron admitting he is collecting his Southwest Pension which it appears according to the Plan Summary he is doing so illegally. Southwest Plan Rule "you cannot work in any employment or activity in the building and construction industry anywhere."
Prohibited work includes,but is not limited to the following "Supervisory and labor relations work in the industry."
Was it the Chairman of the Southwest Pension Douglas McCarron lying with his "retiree working in Alabama story" which was pure BS and a lie according to the Plan Summary. "Southwest Plan Rule""you cannot work in any employment or activity in the building and construction industry anywhere."
Was it Doug McCarron lying as to his compensation from the UBC which is but $390,000 but according to the 2012 990 is $506,000.
We do not know if this includes every payment he receives as trustee on multiple UBC funds, labor management committees, etc. I am sure it does not include what he collects from ULLICO and his other outside director fees such as PB Capital. President and board member of Multiple organizations such as President at Southwest Cpt Holdings, Inc. (John T. DeCarlo serves as the registered agent for this organization).
- President at 999 Office Building Corporation
- President at Carpenters Southwest Administrative Corporation
- President at Commerce Pointe II Menifee, Inc.
- President at Cpt/Sc Title Holding Corporation
- President at Psrr Corporation
- President at Santa Nella Hotel Corporation
- President at Sbh Hotel Corporation
- President at Valencia Industrial, Inc.
- President at Western States Drywall/Lathing Industry Labor-Management Cooperation Committee, Inc.
- President at Zeiders Road Business Park, Inc.
"The investigation revealed that the Constitution and Bylaws at Section 31(D) provides that
a member cannot hold office or a position on a committee if drawing from a Carpenter’s pension plan. The Department’s investigation revealed that this is a violation of the Carpenter’s
Constitution and thereby a technical violation of the Act"— DOL 2009
Was it that it allows us to once again declare McCarron is holding office as General President in violation of the UBC Constitution and the LMRDA.
Doug McCarron has been challenged on collecting a pension and drawing a pension on numerous occasions. When he and Frank Spencer were working so hard to keep convicted criminal EST Mike Forde and his cronies in office Forde was collecting a Pension as well. We in Albany took Doug McCarron to the DOL over the issue. Despite Doug McCarron ruling the section in 31(D) refers to a UBC INTERNATIONAL Pension the DOL ruled against him and ruled a retiree collecting ANY Pension was in violation of the UBC Constitution and the LMRDA if they were holding office or on a committee,. This was in 2009 and Mccarron knew this is 2010 when he took office again (see below).
Despite Douglas McCarrons declaration that a UBC member can hold office unless collecting an International Pension the Department of Labor has ruled he is a liar and holding office in violation of the LMRDA and the UBC Constitution the US DOL has rightfully ruled that the receipt of any carpenters' union pension within the jurisdiction of the UBC disqualifies a carpenters' union member to be eligible to be elected or appointed as a carpenters' union officer, delegate, or committee member.

“You alleged that retired members served on the Election Committee in violation of the Carpenter’s Constitution, Bylaws and Election Guidelines. The investigation revealed that the Constitution and Bylaws at Section 31(D) provides that a member cannot hold office or a position on a committee if drawing from a Carpenter’s pension plan. "The Department found that two members of the Election Committee were retirees drawing from the Local’s pension plan. The Department’s investigation revealed that the presence of the retirees on the Election Committee was a violation of the Carpenter’s Constitution and thereby a technical violation of the Act," see 29 C.F.R. §§ 452.2 and 452.109.

Was it the accusation that Doug McCarron had a girlfriend and that he got her a job and a $66,000.00 dollar raise.
Was it the video proof of a council illegally interfering with the rights of a Local not in trusteeship with the collusion of a Local nobody.
Was it yet another Local UBC Local nobody such as McDonald trying to sell out his Local to yet another council and said Local nobody violating his fiduciary duty to his Local.
Is it the UBC lying in a Federal Court and continuing to violate the rights of the Locals.
Case No. 07-=15574 US District Court Northern California. Gustave Link-vs- David Rhodes ,et al.
A Union Brother in California had filed a case in which McCarron is named as a defendant. McCarrons lawyers want him removed as a defendant. The basis of the case is that since McCarron and the International control the Councils and the Locals and the Councils control the Locals as any rank and file members knows is a fact then the International can be held liable for polices they have created and policy's created and implemented against rank and file members by councils.
Not so. McCarron and the International lawyers have declared on Page 8 and I quote:
"Link continues to misunderstand union structure and law governing common law agency relationships. Local, intermediate and international unions are legally separate entities and liability for a local unions actions does not attach itself to the International" and the kicker "Unions generally adopt a three-tier structure: the international union, various intermediate bodies and local Unions. Though they are affiliated by a constitution these organizations are SUCH SEPARATE ENTITIES that they can and do sue each other and THEIR AGENTS HAVE NO LEGAL BINDING AUTHORITY OUTSIDE THEIR OWN UNION ENTITY.”
Was it the insult of yet another UBC nobody (McDonald) who clearly adheres to the UBC policy of "punk" Unionism talk about Undemocratic practices and autocratic rule. Has the audacity to accuse others when seated before him was Doug McCarron who routinely persecutes anybody who stands against his absurd corporate Unionism and due to his actions is the General President of the most undemocratic Union in organized labor and is a scourge on organized labor. The same Douglas McCarron who labeled any member who opposes him as "deranged loners" and "commies."
No to all of the above.
What the world of labor and the rank and file need to view here is the delusions suffered by the leaders of the UBC. Chicken Doug who strutted and chicken chested about like a bandy rooster keep declaring his pals testified under oath and Mike refused to testify under oath..
Under Oath your ass...In your delusions you do not realize that your Kangaroo UBC Trail system is a joke. That Doug McCarron is a joke. That the UBC trail committee is a joke and except in the land of UBC OZ doesn't mean a damn thing. YOUR NOT A REAL COURT. Your rulings mean nothing. Your oaths mean nothing an are not binding or significant in any world but the UBC land of oz.
How could Napoleon syndrome Mike Draper, $10,000 First Class airfare Frank Spencer (with convicted criminal Mike Forde) and "where is your visa and green card" Canadian James Smith truly believe in any reality that they had the right to put anybody under oath or that their so called Oath was anything more than a nut scratching device. Did Mike McCarron laugh in their face as he should have when they asked him to swear under oath.
Lets get into the real world Chicken Doug and then I challenge your so called witnesses who you bragged about swearing and giving testimony under oath in a real court and not your BS, Absurd joke of a UBC Kangaroo Court. Lets see if they swear under oath then. Mike McCarron had the guts to go to the Department of Labor to give information where he is liable for any false statements in the REAL world. How many of the Doug McCarron's swear under oath pals have done so or given information in any REAL world setting...Id bet NONE.
I would like to see the how many of the same witnesses swear when facing perjury charges in the real world and then Chicken Doug can tell us all how they “Swore Under Oath.”
This is what the world of labor and the rank and file need to view and understand. They need to see that that this group of nut jobs truly believe that because they have donned a UBC name tag that they can declare themselves a real court that can demand testimony and oath.
These nut jobs think that their rulings are NOT insignificant BS which mean nothing any place but in the world of UBC oz.
What Labor needs to see is that these magpies have lost their frigging marbles. These nut jobs believe that a UBC name tag has transformed them from insignificant nobody’s to Emperors of Rome that the masses should adorned with rose petals as they pass.
The truth is outside of UBC OZ you can find Draper, Spencer or chicken Doug asking their high priced California Lawyers, who suck millions out of the UBC the same question over and over. "How did we lose yet another case." Despite their delusions of grandeur they are after all…. nothing.
