Carpenters Union at 6th and B

On May 7th, several members of the Carpenters Local 1506 Union set up banners in front of 600 B St. in downtown San Diego. They were set up in front of the building next to the curb and stayed there for normal business hours. They provided handouts to people passing by and entering and exiting the building. According to information on their handout, they are objecting to Pacific Building Group’s work on Bridgepoint’s new office. The union claims that Pacific Building Group does not meet area labor standards, including providing for family health care and pension for all of their immigrant carpenter craft employees.

The union claims that Bridgepoint has an obligation to the community to see that area labor standards are met for construction work on their new office and that they should not be able to insulate themselves behind independent contractors. They are urging the public to contact Bridgepoint and suggest that they choose another building company for their project.

Associated Builders and Contractors, the group pushing the anti-union Prop G in Chula Vista, lists Pacific Building Group as having a seat on its Board of Directors. If Prop G passes we can expect to see many more violations like these. Only through binding union contracts will workers be guaranteed protection from such abuse. VOTE NO ON PROP G!

waa waa waa... poor little union thugs didn't get a job and so now they're upset... specifically, what "labor standards" are not being met? or are they meeting all California labor standards, but maybe not "union standards", which may be why a union shop didn't get the work? You guys cost too much and your work quality isn't any better than non-union shops. "Immigrant carpenter craft employees"? what difference does it make if they're immigrants or not, as long as they are legally in the country. If they aren't, then arrest them and deport them. If they are here legally, then no rules are being broken.

VOTE YES ON PROP G!!!! SAY NO TO PROJECT LABOR AGREEMENTS!!! STOP WASTING YOUR TAX DOLLARS!!!
