From a reader:
The Carpenter’s Union in Chicago has no elections for Business Agents. The only elections they hold are for powerless positions. We need to have free elections for B.A.’s and District Council Board members(not D C delegates)
The Union has sold so many Union Cards over the years, that they have created a depression. They figure more members-more dues; f*** the older members. I’ve collected so much unemployment that I’ve become a burden on society and the union could care less. All they want is more dues.
