    Carpenters’ Chief Expected to Survive Reelection Challenge - By Tony Illia, McGraw-Hill Construction | ENR
    An opposition slate challenging his reelection garnered some support but was not expected to unseat McCarron at the Aug. 25 election.

    Presidential challenger Tom Lewandowski, a member and past officer of Local 792 in Rockford, Ill., charges that McCarron has taken members' rights away. 'For anyone to make those types of decisions, they should have input from the membership,' he argues.

    Ken Little, a member of Local 144 in Seattle and a challenger for general secretary-treasurer, says he fears the disaffiliation could create 'open warfare' on jobsites. Little also criticized McCarron's philosophy that a union be run like a corporation. Little challenged McCarron for the top post in 2000.
