    At the Carpenters Union Convention in Las Vegas - Union Democracy Review
    It is said that about 85% of the elected delegates are paid staff. Understand that these positions are appointed. There is no real job security; therefore, while job performance may certainly be a top priority, so is doing whatever keeps your Boss happy - and this should be of concern to us all. Our union is increasingly run from the top down, rather than by traditional means. Communication tends to be one way only. Our leadership does not promote open communications amongst the members and seldom are the concerns of working carpenters represented by their Business Reps. and taken up the ladder. Make no mistake, this is an erosion of trade union democracy.
