Fraternal Order of Woodworkers Meeting

From The Fraternal Order of Woodworkers:

This Thursday @ 5:00 PM, July 26th, 2012 we are calling all New York City District Council Woodworkers to come to a special meeting to discuss the recent Manufacturing Woodworkers Association situation.


Some greedy contractors who we have been working for many years feel we should be working harder for substantially lower wages. As union woodworkers, we have been making these same employers very wealthy providing the most skilled craftsmen and women that are available. This is how they show their appreciation and expect us to accept these low wages because one of our past corrupt leaders made a shady deal. They have no class, respect and honor towards the members of this great union.


For too long we have been taken advantage of and

 this has got to stop now.

The inside shop members and outside installers need to unite and stand tall together. We need information and we need it now! Please tell any carpenter you know to attend this open meeting to find out the facts and what our options are to protect our future. You owe it to your family and to all carpenters who walk in your footsteps.


We will be having this meeting at 5:00 PM on Thursday, July 26th, 2012 on the second floor at 395 Hudson Street, Labor Technical School. We urge all brothers and sisters to get involved to show the MWA contractors and our leaders we are here and we are ready to fight in what ever way we find necessary to protect our craft.
