New Jersey Carpenters United

     New Jersey United Brotherhood of Carpenter members establish a website, www.NewJerseyCarpentersUnited.com with a lofty goal. The following mission statement is posted on their home page:

The Goal of this website:

  • Organize from a grassroots level all New Jersey Union Carpenters who are fed up with the International in Washington weakening our union by taking away our rights and not acting with our best interest in mind.
  • Separate ourselves from the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America and become an independent union in control of our own destiny.
  • Restore our voting rights and return the voice of the rank and file that so many years ago were taken from us.
  • Get enough members to agree with these goals and vote affirmative on this site so we can then obtain legal counsel to proceed in that direction.
     We ask that you go to their site and exercise your right to vote!! Thank you!

"Because they told me I could give them my money, I could pay my per capita tax and I could come to their meetings, but I couldn't vote. I said,-...'Scuse me?"

Nelson responds to the Post Dispatch journalist Repps Hudson's question as to why the St Louis Carpenters District Council are not in the AFL-CIO. Hey Nelson, now you know how your rank-and-file carpenters feel!
