carpenters independent local#1



HE AND THE UBC WILL SOON REGRET HIS FOOLISHNESS.civil court judges frown on liars with intent to slander.



how is local #1 a scab union by this definition

Scab (1) : a worker who refuses to join a labor union (2) : a union member who refuses to strike or returns to work before a strike has ended (3) : a worker who accepts employment or replaces a union worker during a strike

     but let us use jack londons definition of a scab

"The modern scab sells his birthright, his country, his wife, his children and his fellow men for an unfulfilled promise from his employer, trust or corporation"

Just as Sowalski and his cronies have done with the UBC

little tykes sowalski told the Building trade members that the area Union contractors were not interested in Local you will soon see.Mr. Sowalski is a liar

little tykes sowasli also told the builidng trade members that local #1 has approached contractors and offered workers at a 30 % wage reduction.Mr.Sowalski is a liar

little tykes sowalkis told the building trades that local #1  has had meetings with the northeast contractors asociation.Mr.Sowalski is a liar

thank you for your ignorance and your mouth "litle tykes" have given us the means to bring this fight ot your front door.

united brotherhood of carpenters  "building trades strategy"

the ubc mission to "adapt by lies"

attention albany ny building trades it here as we reveal another part of the ubc scam to facilitate their new mission of "adapt by lies"..courtesy of carpenters independent local #1

implementation of this program must begin immediately because the interantional building trades have been exposing the carpenters in the western part of new york state for several months.members in new jersey have been talking about the "respect our crafts" movement

"the International building trades negative campaign against the carpenters must be handled appropriately so it doesnt become a distraction as we move forward with the merger of the new york and new jersey councils"

negative message:

negative messaging must be done under the guise of asking the other crafts what their leadership has done to grow their market share

all senior nercc must be well versed in the negative messaging.

how low will these ubc interanational and ubc council rats go in their mission to defraud their own members and organized labor

ubc bumbling "apple dumpling gang" making threats against independent local #1

the gang, who have also been known by the alias "Spencers Chimps" and "the 291 sellouts"leader seems to be   todd"amateur girls for your veiwing pleasure"banks.other members include mark "little tykes"sowalski,Mike"puffy" Shanahan and Chris "I used to be a girl"Dugan. The gang also moonlights as an all girl band known as "the skanky buttcracks"where they are joined onstage by Mike "I will get you" Bruno

as the fear of local #1 sets in Sowalksi and his clowns have been spreading lies and misinforamtion in an attempt to discourage and bully members from seeking out Local #1


ANSWER: pure ubc jack off named sowalski or banks can touch your pension for your association with or support of Local #1


ANSWER:can you say FREEDOM OF SPEECH.SEE KEVIN PRICE VS THE United brotherhood of carpenters here.the ubc already had their ass handed to them for just such attempts to strongarm a member who spoke out about their raiding the IBEW.a federal judge has ruled that the ubc can take their kanagroo trial committee and BS UBC constitution and stick it in thier ass.

you cannot be fired or laid off for wearing local #1 teeshirts,stickers or talking about local one. We would LOVE this clowns to try and do so. We are waiting for it with our attorneys. Anyone who does suffer any one of these actions will own their homes, cars and bank accounts.tHESE LIES ARE BEING told not only by theSE fools  but by certain moronic shop stewards

lie three:as declared by moron sowaslki."Resign from local 291 and join Local #1 . You will be on unemployment because the contractors stay with the UBC. Part of this lie is intentional and part is because Mark Sowalki has a substandard IQ and is bascially dumb a rock.

Answer:The contractors go where the members go.THe UBC is run by arrogant punks who believe the members are here to serve them. The fact is that if an employer has 20 employees and 11 resign from 291 AND JOIN lOCAL #1 WE NOW HAVE THE 51% NEEDED AND WE WILL GET THE CONTRACTOR.tHEY HAVE NO CHOICE AND THEY GO WHERE THE MEMBERS GO BY LAW.

so the lies and threats begin

anybody harrassed or threatend for wearing local #1 tee shirts or stickers be advised we will take legal action on your behalf

anytime you are told lies by sowaslki or the ubc we wil give you a direct contact number for the local #1 attorneys to verify the UBC BS

mark sowalski being the low iq clown that he is has tried to intimidate members for wearing local #1 tee shirts on job sites. The fact is Mark Sowalki is to ignorant to fight this for the ubc. so anything he tells you will be looked at by our attorneys such as todays lie.

 You will not go to the UBC and resign to join local one. That will not happen until after you vote to join with local #1.once you do the contractors and your jobs will come with you wether they like it or not. They have no choice. The UBC contract they have will have be null and void and they and your jobs wil come with you. You will not miss a days work.

new collective bargainng agreement

courtesy of carpenters independent local #1

read it here

 here is what the rats are afraid for you to know.

article 15:non union workers put on job by the ubc.paid substandard wages at $11 an hour. money paid in for health insurance they can never afford (so the council keeps the money)

article 10:saturday make up at straight time for all missed days(unless you bring a note from your mom signed by a doctor thats says little johny was really sick. so a $200 visit to the doctor or saturday straight time)

article 21: 100% mobility.10o percent of them and not a single hire from local 291

Article 28:pre hire fitness arm chin jobs

drug and substance abuse tests and background checks for members (but not for the 291 officers)

article 24:signatory contractors allowed to sub non union

article 20:steward picked by contractors for 5 man crew or smaller. (i guess sowalkis family will have to suck off elsewhere for a job)

article 19.executed copies of dues check of authorization forms will be keep on file by the union and a copy given to the employers(these are payroll deduction authorization forms required by law under DOL NY Law 193-b.THey MUST be in the hands of the UNion and EVRY SINGLE employer you work for. They have NONE and are telling employers to illegally remove money from your checks. most never signed them and those that did were null and void the day they dissolved the counil.THis is why Capelli wants you to sign the skills form and why you must never do so.

the rats removed the section from the cba to pay local caprenters the same higher rate as those carpenters brought in by the contractors from out of state

the second bill of rights.the rights of humanity

"“Necessitous men are not free men.” People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made."

 President Roosevelt's January 11, 1944 message to the Congress of the United States on the State of the Union

It is our duty  to lay the plans and determine the strategy for the winning of a lasting peace and the establishment of an American standard of living higher than ever before known. We cannot be content, no matter how high that general standard of living may be, if some fraction of our people—whether it be one-third or one-fifth or one-tenth—

is ill-fed, ill-clothed, ill-housed, and insecure.

This Republic had its beginning, and grew to its present strength, under the protection of certain inalienable political rights—among them the right of free speech, free press, free worship, trial by jury, freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. They were our rights to life and liberty.

As our nation has grown in size and stature, however—as our industrial economy expanded—these political rights proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness.

We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. “Necessitous men are not free men.” People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.

In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all—regardless of station, race, or creed.

Among these are:

1.The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;

2.The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;

3.The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;

4.The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;

5.The right of every family to a decent home;

6.The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;

7.The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;

8.The right to a good education.

All of these rights spell security And  we must be prepared to move forward, in the implementation of these rights, to new goals of human happiness and well-being.

America’s own rightful place in the world depends in large part upon how fully these and similar rights have are carried into practice for our citizens.

the ubc 291 rats jobsite pets are spreading booga booga propaganda

the new unions a joke. it will never work.the ubc will get you.they will take your pension and annuity and other scripted propaganda BS 

you know them.they got their jobs by walking over real members to be given jobs not based on their skill or their place on the out of work list.they got their job by kissing a blacklock or sowalski ass. You know them . They are usually talentless and ignorant who would have been laid off by now if not for being a blacklock suck ass.

remember.They sit with you on break and lunch and lie to your face on the job while running back and telling the 291 rats everything you say and do.remember.the only one more ignorant than a 291 officer is his job rat suck ass. Everything he says to you is scripted crap given him by his ubc handlers. but also remember. he knows he is lying to your face and knows he is working with these rats to screw you!

sowalki says "its not our fault"

 it was thrown in our laps but me and dougy.yuk. yuk. yup.yup are going to fix it.

 lest you forget.sowalski the dwarf and the rest of the dithers crew, blacklock, dugan,shannahan,bruno and council bitch banks knew exaclty what was coming. without their direct help in the sell out of local 370 and 1042 McCarron could not have acheived his goals.they are not fixing anything and are liyng to your face.The assessments were illegally increased and new ones illegally imposed in direct violation of the lmrda and they were part of it.if anything they will fight to assure these assements stay in place per thier council handlers to save their council jobs

todd banks says he is  running 291

council lacky banks says "he is the man".to be a council bitch do you first have to be a bitch.banks proves it true

funny i thought banks was just a council lap dog  who collected $90,000 thousand plus a year for doing nothing. according to the ubc structure listed in the constitution banks is the council bitch referenced who has "no voice and no vote" yet banks says he is running 291?

 Carpenters Local 291

890 Third Street

Albany, New York 12205


 To Whom It May Concern,        

                     Please be advised that as of the date of this letter I resign from the United Brotherhood of Carpenters. As of this date I will no longer be bound by any Local, Council or International bylaw or rule. I will no longer be bound and will not pay any dues, assessments and financial obligations of any kind. As of the date listed you no longer have the right to collect any money in my name of any kind for any reason.

                   I have been in this Union for 22 years. I can no longer be a part of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters who under Douglas McCarron has destroyed democratic Unionism within the UBC and is a scourge on organized labor as a whole. I can no longer be a part of an organization controlled by a tyrannical despot, who with the collusion of other UBC Officers such as Frank Spencer, allowed and supported organized crime to take hold in the UBC.  Who allowed and supported common criminals such as Mike Forde who operated for over 15 years under their protection. Who allowed and supported corruption in the New York City and Empire Councils. Who allowed and supported local carpetbaggers such as Mark Sowalski and Douglas Blacklock. Despite being supplied with irrefutable evidence of their guilt in defrauding the membership they were allowed to not only cheat the members of Local 370 but were rewarded for doing so. I cannot in good conscience be part of an organization whose leadership works so diligently to destroy the financial future of its membership and cheat them of their right to a fair and democratic Union. McCarron and his slates continued tenure in office is an insult to Union members every where.

                Be advised that despite your rather delusional opinions what I do after I leave the UBC is none of your business.  I am sure with prolonged medical treatment  or perhaps a few more civil cases the UBC and its present leadership will finally understand how insignificant they really are.

nlrb case filed in new jersey over skills form attempted extortion

do not sign the skills form payroll deduction authorization

 the case alleges that the ubc,capelli and the northeast council are trying to extort the members into signing the skills form,that they are defrauding the members by lying as to the true nature of the payroll deduction autohrization on the skills form and that they are violating New York(193-b) and New Jersey State Labor law by telling employers to take dedcutions from your check without the required voluntarily executed form.

the truth is in.members get 1st paycheck under new cba

saratoga county

members lose .79 cents an hour in give backs.They kept the 1% raise which was .28 cents in the paycheck.they illegally raised the asessment to $1.72 (an increase of .43 cents) and illegally created a new assesment of .12 cents for a total loss of 1.62 per hour.

Come January 1st 2011 they will divert money paid in your name at the rate of .25 cents an hour for ten years for Madoff loss with no PROOF that they need the money. why will they steal it from the membership but REFUSE to sue the trustees that lost it

we had to screw you due to the market share but the rats found over $4 an hour for their Bs funds and assessments.

They automatically took money for the funds which the members would have refused to allow them to take. They illegally increased assessments without a vote. Federal law requires a vote of the rank and file or the delegates to the council to increase assessments or dues. They voted on nothing.

check to see that the pension fund increase is actually going into the 370 pension fund

Yet these rats brought you stickers so everything is ok!!!

The Circus Comes To Troy
   The UBC Trial   Committee
A modern Day dog and Pony show

The only ones who did not know they were a joke was them.

in a blatant attempt to use his UBC office to silence my free speech rights FRank Spencer brought me to the ubc kangaroo trial. this was for telling local sell out christopher dugan to go.... these charges were dimissed last year and the dismissal acccepted by the UBC.The UBC refused to allow me to be represented by counsel. the ubc refused to allow me disclosure so i could defend myself as demanded by the lmrda. the ubc trail committee is a joke and nothing more than a ubc tool to extort its members and violate the rights of its membership. needless to say i refused to participate and any decison by this panel of clowns is worthless

Spencer the Dancing Chimp

Runner up 5 years in a row at the New jersey state  chimpanzee look alike contest.

ubc stooge mike draper calls spencers trip to hawaii "absurd allegation"

in 2008 frank spencer took all the eastern region council est to hawaii for a meeting at a cost to the membership of $250, jack ass mike draper declared in the trial record this was an absurd allegation and did not happen

the trip included the wives of the est and the airfare "first class" per couple alone was $10,000. Included in this trip was convicted criminal and spencer cronie Mike forde the now defunct nyc Council est as well as others.this trip is well documented and also part of the us attorneys office case against forde and many other ubc officers. For draper to deny this as an "absurd allegation" is nothing less than defrauding the membership and blatant proof of the ubc internationals complicity in the ny city and ny state  corruption

dear employer.lets talk shop stewards

call their bluff and stop the bs.

(1).the cba says I have to work every hour anybody works on the job.(but only when i want to.One has to wonder how you can make this demand when you have repeatedly refused overtime??I guess your special and get to pick and choose.I suppose enough dougy juice has made you special)

(a)This is pure Bullshit. The CBa says that he or she shall remain on the job(as in appointed or hired for the job)for as long as or whenever work is being performed by the employer. Further is says the Steward shall be employed(not work every hour) whenever any work is being performed.This is ambigious so we have to go by past practices. In my 22 years this HAS NEVER been interpreted as the Shop Steward is entitled to work every hour any carpenter works .It has always meant that for as long as the employer has work on site he must employ a shop steward for the job. to force an employer to cheat others out of hours because some dumb ass ba calls his buddy a shop steward is discriminatory on the part of the contractor if he complies

(2)i am the shop steward. the almighty oz.!!! I am the last to leave

(A)BS the Foremen is the last to leave.Further the New York Sate Labor law allows for dischagre of any employee for just does not allow that to be applied in a discriminatory manner.Telling an employer that you must keep a worthless ass on the job and must lay off a competant worker because his buddy is a union ba and calls him a shop steward is a flat out lie and a scam being run by this steward and blacklock. For the sake of all workers on the job call their bluff and take it to court. First Blacklock is a pussy and will back down. Second he knows this is a scam and will never take it to court.

(3) we have shop steward rules and all must follow them

(A) Not anymore. If Blacklock and Sowalski do not obey the rules then all the rules are null and void for everybody. To send out their cronies as steward they have ignored the rule that all stewards must have training. Even with trained stewards on the bench they have sent out their pals and family members with no training to jobs as a steward. Ask Sowalski how his Pal Tim Hucthins who was only in the Union for 6 months got sent as shop steward for Target. Ask Blacklock how he appointed an apprentice as shop steward and ignored a journeyman with years of experience becuase he did not like that journeyman.He told the job supervisor the apprentice was more qualifed because he attended a Union meeting!!You ignore the rule and there are no rules

 and the nail in this Steward Scam Coffin 

 Globalfoundries PLA

article 3 section 2(a)

the contractors shall have the sole right to lay off anybody they want and to reject anybody the union sends. including the shop steward

stickers.all we need are stickers and everythings ok

said one unnamed shop steward "the guys loved them.They were lining up like kids to get them"

the first thing they spent the money on that they stole from members pay checks was scumbag local 291  stickers.How proud members are to wear them.Stickers  handed out by the very scum who sold out the charter of local 370,signed over the 370 bank accounts to the ubc rats,tried to pass illegal bylaws selling out the new 291 local to the council,lie to your face and are driectly responsible for your new paychecks.

Yes sireee the guys loved the stickers and are forgeting all these scum have done to them."lined up like kids to get them"

when is it time to say enough is!!!

We have retained lawyers for the purpose of starting a new carpenters union in albany new york. we will be free of the yoke of douglas mccarron and independent of the ubc
a meeting will be held on july 11,2011 at 6 pm for interested members.the meeting will be at the Joseph E. Zaloga Post 1520 at 4 Everett Rd. Ext. Albany, NY 12205 ...

 the lawyers will answer all questions and explain how we will get our funds money and contractors over to the new democratic carpenters union

for questions and further directions call 664-4773

attention:any 370/229 members who quit the ubc in disgust or were thrown out of the union by a local 370 bs kangroo trial committee contact us. we have a real union for you.we want you back.

do not sign skills sheets.beware the fine print

new capelli council attempting to extort members

As reported here months ago and called lies by UBC Rat Bastard "Hatchet Jack" Garrison the New Council is attempting to extort the members with a new skills sheet. Included on the sheet is the statement
"I ____________________________________(Print Name), assign to the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, from my earnings, a sum equal to the Union’s membership dues, assessments, and initiation fee (the Union will notify
my Employer of the current amount). I authorize and direct my Employer to deduct such sum and remit the money to
the Union monthly. This assignment is irrevocable for one (1) year from this date or until the termination of the Labor
Agreement, whichever occurs first. This assignment shall be renewed automatically, for successive12 month periods,
unless the Union and my employer receive my written notice of termination of this assignment not more than twenty
(20) days and not less than ten (10) days prior to renewal of the assignment. This authorization is effective regardless
of my status as a member, non-member, or “financial core” payer and applies regardless of any future resignation of
membership on my part.

I hereby authorize the NORTHEAST REGIONAL COUNCIL OF CARPENTERS to act as my collective bargaining
agent in dealing with my employer in regard to wages, hours, and other conditions of employment.

if you refuse to sign this Blatant attempt at extortion members are being told they will not be put in the out of work system
