Notice of Billing Changes for Working Dues Assessments

Message from the District Council: Brothers and Sisters,

Please be informed, starting with your (4th) Fourth Quarter 2013 vacation check, the New York City District Council working dues and assessment invoice will no longer be included with the mailing of your vacation check. Due to the new upgraded Benefit Funds System and the use of separate vendors, the New York City District Council will no longer have the ability to combine the working dues invoice with your vacation check. Please be aware that you will receive a separate working dues assessment invoice directly from the New York City District Council, and it is your responsibility to remit payment prior to the due date.

If you have not yet completed a working dues/assessment Deduction Authorization Form, or if you have any questions, please contact the New York City District Council Assessment Department at (212) 366-7375.

    1. You can't teach stupid!

      But, we can beat it into their thick/useless skulls including a few attorneys who need their bar cards permanently revoked & those actions are still on the table & well within any statute of limitations. They better beat us there or they'll be looking for work at Walmart; their denials & arrogance and abuse of process aside.

  3. So with the new dues check off system , do they still collect the Political Action Contributions ?? I have chosen to opt out of that when sending my W D A payment . How does one opt out now ?? . Is it not illegal to force members to pay for political contributions or deduct it without their knowledge ?

  4. It is illegal w/o the members written authorization. The UBC & its Disrict Councils don;t care though & they take their nickel or dime an hour from the vacation check anyhow and then dare you to challenge them under the direct threat that if ya don't support the politicians they do - well, according to them, you are scum and then they blackball you or call you out at a Local Union Meeting (divide & conquer tactic) for not sigining the authorization form. I revoked mine 5-years and they took the hourly contribution every year from my vacation pay anyhow!

    It's the classic thug mentality of the misfits on local e-boards. They can't organize shit, they put their buddies, cousins & kids to work and typically they only get a steward on a job. Our appointed BA has been around for 16-years & has his head jammed up the EST & McCarrons ass. He & his kid both have zero skills as Carpenters and neither could build a sawhorse or a simple tool shed w/o calling Home Depot for an advance order were they put to a simple test.

    That's McCarrons UBCJA. But what else could you exepct from a guy who is not a true-ground up carpenter that can only screw off board or count the sheets that someone else lugged in, cut and installed?

    1099's, Travelers, Illegal Aliens, Mob connections & pay-offs - it's the new UBC. Don't worry though - they can play this game & the pay-off game of 5-Apprentices to 1 Journeyman for so long. Given enough time, Rome will crumble & fall because in a few years all the older & expereinced men with a work ethic will be gone and they UBC will be left w/a bunch of useless dolts who stand around all day, who have no skills other than sucking up or back-stabbing and they'll all be out of work because the non-union element will eat their lunch. They can only ride the tails of the productive men so long & the good ones are leaving & saying screw you Doug, we'll bury you from the other side.

    Non-Union firms are becoming larger, able to bond more work and have been robbing the union of good men for quite some time now and the shitbags like McGinnis, Cavanaugh, Geiger & countless others in every DC of the UBCJA don't have a clue why they lose more ground every day. Rome will burn before it falls and pay day is coming soon for Doug and all the little girly men he's appointed over the past 19-years

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.
