    Carpenters end jurisdiction pacts - The Building Tradesman Back Issues Index
    McCarron sent a similar letter to Sheet Metal Workers President Michael Sullivan, canceling an agreement over defining which craft installs suspended metal ceilings with components including grills, diffusers, and air handling slats. Sullivan called it a 'bad message to send to owners.'

    Hunt said in a letter to the Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) - which has a huge interest in seeing that job harmony is maintained among trade unions - that the Sheet Metal Workers' agreements with the Carpenters, 'while not perfect, have done much to weld our two crafts into a cooperative, efficient team, providing our contractors and customers with a workforce tailored to their needs.'

    The 'last thing' corporate owners need, Hunt said, 'is the removal of agreements that provide harmony on the job.' He added that the Carpenters' 'attempt to grab market share without considering the impact on our customers is inconsistent' with the mission of the labor-owner-committee established by CURT.
