We invite you to join us in front of Senator Diane Feinstein's office at Market street in San Francisco, To point out a puppet named DOUG McCARRON and to show who the ones are that are pulling the puppet strings, and none other than Richard Blum (Diane Feinstein's Husband) who dances to the tune of over 7 million dollors payed to him by the Carpenters Union, Co-Chaired by Ron Tutor a heavy contributer to Senator Feinstein. You know, that Feinstein has appeared to be "impartial" but you can not find a better HYPOCRIT than Diane Feinstein is ( Ask Clinton)

Questions on reform

Feds Launch probe of Carpenter Fund!!!!!

THE FEDERAL DEPARTMENT of labor has opened an inquiry into the handling of carpenters union benefit funds, according to government and union sources.
The inquiry comes after union officials awarded the management of the New York Carpenters District Council's $1.7 billion fund to Chicago based Zenith Administrator.
Zenith's selection came as fund trustees voted to charge retired carpenters up to $180 a month for benefits, saying they needed the money to stay afloat. Many members protested that the fund was healthy and told federal officials they suspected political moves to force retirees to drop their membership.
Labor Department investigators visited the union's Hudson St. offices last month, collecting records on Zenith's selection.
The inquiry comes as a group of rank-and-file carpenters is planning a protest tomorrow, at Federal Court in Manhattan against the continued receivership of the District Council. National carpenters chief Douglas McCarron took over the council two years ago, citing corruption. Union officials didn't return calls.



Carpenters vesting, Getting screwed




If I were to go to the District Council or any Local Union and discuss any of these matters in this website, I would be ostracized and McCarron's YES men would not permit me.

HELP STOP DOUG McCARRON'S ATTACK ON OUR DEMOCRACY!


IS CALIFORNIA, TEXAS, AND CHICAGO CARPENTER PENSION FUND UNDER SUPEONA FROM THE DEPT OF LABOR AND DEPT. OF JUSTICE?????

IS ZENITH 14 MILLION DOLLARS IN THE RED?????
