This site speaks to the dispute between Mike and Doug McCarron of the Carpenters Union
 
PART 1 COMMENTARY:
The Executive Board of Local 1506 called and held its meeting without Mike McCarron.
When Mike McCarron asked why the meeting was called without him present the VP lied.

See the Meeting video 
at time stamp: 3:30 recording secretary stated the e-board meeting ended at 6:15 pm.
 At time stamp 4:20 Mike states that he arrived at 1506 at approximately 6:30.

At time stamp 4:48, the VP states the Mike called the meeting to order.
HOW CAN MIKE CALL A MEETING TO ORDER THAT ENDED AT 6:15pm WHEN HE WAS NOT EVEN IN THE BUILDING. He cannot.


PART 2 COMMENTARY:
Isn’t it ironic that Mike McCarron was prevented from discussing the situation regarding the local, the SWRCC and his position on the matter, but the recording secretary states that staff is on hand to explain the situation.

SO THE INTERNATIONAL and REGIONAL COUNCIL GET TO DISCUSS “THIER POSITION” to THE MEMBERS, BUT MIKE DOES NOT. WHERE IS THE DEMOCRACY….

Check out the end of the video when the recording secretary LAUGHS when Mike states “Democracy in the Brotherhood is dead.”


PART 3 COMMENTARY:
Mike explains the situation and gets cut off when a staffer blares his car alarm.


PART 4

PARTS 5 & 6 COMMENTARY
Even with the car alarm blaring, the members were hanging around to support Mike McCarron.

First of all the relationship between the Council and the Locals is clearly established by the Secretary of Labor Hilda Solas in Harrington –v-Chao. The Councils are Intermediate bodies and the locals and the Local members are NOT members of the council but Affiliated with them. In Gustave Link –v-Rhodes we have the UBC International stating for the record the Councils have no legal binding authority except within the Council. We also have multiple LM2 .990 and 5500 filings in which the UBC Internationals and Councils have declared that the Councils have NO MEMBERS. The legal hacks at Decarlo, Connor and Shanley knew this yet advised the Council they could violate the law. I say hacks because it was them that lost the UBC the BC Carpenters in Canada and because they have lost so many cases at the DOL,NLRB and in District court (like the Boo HOO the rest of the trades are picking on us and we want RICO charges”) While the Council, in my opinion, is an illegal Trusteeship the Locals are not . Draper and the Council had no authority at Local 1506 to dictate a Security or how the meeting was to run.
So here you have Draper holding a council Executive Board meeting and ILLEGALLY making rulings telling Local 1506 (1)we are sending in security and (2) if the meeting is not run by the Order of Business the meeting is to be adjourned. The answer to those orders should have been to tell Draper to kiss 1506s ass. Why did the Officers of 1506 not protest and tell Draper and the Council to drop dead and your rulings mean nothing to out Local. Why did they not only fail to fulfill their fiduciary duty to the Local but in the case of that weasel Dan McDonald act as agents of the District Council. The VP and Temp Chair lied and tried to say it was the Local who brought in and decided on security and then McDonald exposed the lie and declared the council had decided it and sent them.
Also why did the VP turn to the Recording Sec McDonald to clarify the Security issue?? How would Recording Sec McDonald have that information and why did the VP NOT have a clue. McDonald stated that “we received correspondence that you were mentally unstable” and blah Blah. WHEN did they receive it and by what medium and who is “we”.. It was not in the Official correspondence illegally dictating terms of the meeting and forced council security so when did the Local Executive board correspond with Draper. Who did since its clear the VP of the Local did not. What was part of the Local E Board doing having secret talks with Draper and the council and where is the correspondence in writing saying Mike McCarron was mentality unstable,? Another point is either Draper or Dan McDonlad clearly slandered Mike McCarron by declaring him mentally unstable and other slanderous allegations. One or the other should be sued for slander.
McDonald should be brought up on charges by the Local. It is clear he was acting as an agent for the council and not the Local as his fiduciary duty dictates. His “Councils agents and Attorneys” BS speech first of all violated the rules since it was in the middle of a motion if he wanted to debate or discuss the motion on the floor he to had to leave the podium and take the mic on the floor. Second the motion that was just passed was that none of the Mike McCarron issue/situation be discussed here( as in at the meeting and on the premises) and be discussed at Trial but YET MINUTES LATER McDonald is informing members agents and lawyers will do just that.

The duties of a Locals Warden are “DUTIES OF WARDEN OF LOCAL UNION Section 39. The Warden shall take charge of the doors at the meeting and see that no one but members shall enter. How did anybody Security people or Council Agents and Lawyers get in at all. Is it not protocol to announce any visitor and request they be seated by vote of the Local membership.

At least you now have a video that proves the UBCs illegal actions and frees you from your obligation to exhaust your Internal Remedies and you can move immediately to District Court and DOL charges. My first injunction would be to bar Draper and the Council from ever interfering with Local 1506 again. Watch the1506 Locals assets during this trusteeship. Its clear the Officers of 1506 will not or can not do anything to protect their local.

Mike, I am retired from the Brotherhood, but I remember our meeting at the Maritime Inst. for training. If you recall after the training was over you and some of the guys from California sat and talked with me in the dining room. I was impressed with the way you carried yourself and enjoyed talking with you. Through the years I saw you at various Intl. affairs and I always spoke to you.
I am so sorry this has happened to you and your family. I viewed the videos and could tell that your membership loves you.
There is nothing I can do except pray for you. God bless you.

I watched the video clips of the Friday 1506 meeting. Mike McCarron’s presentation was professional and he was very much in control. The allegation made by the recording secretary of 1506 was out of line. Mike should attend the 2361 meeting Tuesday night in Buena Park at 6:00.
