    67th Convention of Building & Construction Trades, AFL-CIO Re-Elects Pres. Sullivan and Sec.-Treas. Maloney - Press Release
    Referring to recent controversy in the AFL-CIO, Sullivan noted, 'We regret that the leaders of the Teamsters and the Carpenters have chosen to disaffiliate from the AFL-CIO and, therefore, to leave the Building Trades Department. We recognize that there is a necessary interrelationship among the building trades. We will continue to work together to ensure that our differences do not disrupt jobsites and that the important progress we have made with contractors and owners will continue.'
