McCarron and his Union Busting sharks came to NYC and now are crying FOUL when their own
sharks turned and devoured them. What goes around , comes around.
Californians are ready to do the same thing to the shark, CEO McCarron
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)

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.
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?????
