UBC General President Doug McCarron Attends Local 30 Meeting

UBC General President Doug McCarron attended the Local 30 monthly meeting in Seattle last night (11/8/21). The General President spent more than two hours listening to members and addressing questions related to the ongoing investigation. Among the points the General President clarified were:

– The Delegate body and E-board are disbanded while NWCU is under UBC trusteeship. New elections will be held once the trusteeship is complete.
– Dispensation was granted, absolving members in Western and Central Washington, who were affected by the strike, but unable to picket, of the strike assessment fee.
– There was evidence of voting fraud during the member ratification vote for Western and Central Washington Tentative Agreement (TA) 3, but it has not been determined whether TA4 or TA5 were impacted.
– A new investment advisor has been hired by the Western Washington Carpenter’s Trusts.
– Confirmation that $250 million of pension and health fund assets were lost in the Allianz hedge fund investments.

NWCU Supervisor James Gleason, and the entire NWCU team, are committed to communicating additional information regarding the investigation and the impact on members as we are able. We appreciate your ongoing patience with this matter.
