    Machinists Make Bid To Join The Building Trades’ Group - By Sherie Winston, McGraw-Hill Construction | ENR
    As the AFL-CIO's Building and Construction Trades Dept. grapples with life without the carpenters and teamsters, a possible financial white knight could be on the way.

    Machinists' President R. Thomas Buffenbarger has approached BCTD seeking affiliation. In a brief Aug. 30 letter to BCTD President Edward C. Sullivan, Buffenbarger asked, without explanation, that affiliation be considered.

    The AFL-CIO's Metal Trades Dept. also is exploring affiliation with BCTD. It has 14 member unions, 10 of which are building trade unions - the plumbers, laborers, painters, asbestos workers, boilermakers, electrical workers, ironworkers, operating engineers, sheet metal workers and plasterers. The machinists' union also is a member of the Metal Trades Dept.
