    AGC: union trades may 'expedite extinction' with ongoing battles - The Building Tradesman
    Union disunity is starting to raise red flags with construction employers.

    Building Trades Department President Edward Sullivan said he is 'hopeful that the Carpenters will re-affiliate with the AFL-CIO by the July Convention. The choice is up to UBC President McCarron. Members of our Governing Board of Presidents believe that President McCarron would best serve his members by continuing to be a participant in building a stronger national labor movement.'

    He added, 'we have met with President McCarron numerous times to express our concern for the thousands of UBC locals and members who would be adversely affected by his decision to leave the AFL-CIO. Many of the reforms President McCarron has advocated for have already or are in the process of being resolved.

    'That is why both AFL-CIO President John Sweeney and the Presidents of the Building Trades have and continue to strongly encourage him to choose re-affiliation.'
