From my understanding, inspectors and some maintenance guys are non union, but as far as new construction i doubt theres much non union in the city, mayb 2-3 floor buildings in the burbs , but any high rise in the city would be our guys

Did you see the cover of the constructor ? How can the canary who spent every Afternoon drunk in the bar be on the national safety committee ? Guess it pays to have short friends in high places what a joke this industry has become.

It's time to move on with your life, everyone else has including the Red Menace. Brad, push your shopping cart with all your possessions to the viaduct under I57 and get some rest. You're near the truck stop and you can visit your wife who's giving BJ's to truckers to make ends meet. How sad Brad, how sad.

Boy brad you never had to slow down you didn't do anything anyway. You were the poster boy for organized labor. It was complete useless slugs like you that they were obligated to try and keep working. This is what give unions a bad rap pieces of shit like you. Now go out and deliver another pizza you loser.

Unions suck because of self entitled thugs like terry the canary. Never did anything, never represented anybody without a quid pro quo for himself. Then pretended he was a man to skank boy. He knows where the skeletons are buried.

Frank is the General President.... You live under the viaduct under I-57.

Terry is a respected inspector.... You collect empty beer cans for cash.

The Red Menance is running his business... You're hoping for a career at Walmart.

You are a loser plain and simple... Youre nothing more than an old pimple on the ass of Local 2
