    Split Has Many Eyeing Future Relationships - McGraw-Hill Construction | ENR
    The ironworkers and bricklayers say they will remain in BCTD and the operating engineers and laborers say they have not yet separated from the AFL-CIO. Building trades officials deride the NCA. This is “a time when solidarity has never been more critical,” says BCTD President Edward C. Sullivan. “Their stated reasons for leaving do not ring true.” Sullivan claims BCTD has been working with owner and contractor groups to boost union market share. Remaining unions in the department held an “emergency” meeting on Feb. 21 to discuss issues created by the unions’ departure, says a union source. BCTD officials could not be reached for comment at ENR press time.
