RESOLUTION 70
Resolution passed at the 2009 AFL-CIO CONVENTON
Carpenters’ Organizing Committee
Submitted by the Constitution and Governance Committee

WHEREAS, the need for solidarity among labor organizations representing different crafts is vital to the success of building and construction trades unions; and

WHEREAS, the participation of all crafts in the
Building and Construction Trades Department
would immeasurably increase organizing
potential and the bargaining position of all
building and construction trades unions; and

WHEREAS, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters continues to pursue a “go it alone” policy and has acted in a manner inconsistent with the principles of solidarity, to the detriment of other building trades unions and the organized construction industry;

 

 

 

 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that:

1. The AFL-CIO urges the United Brotherhood of Carpenters to re-affiliate with the AFL-CIO and the Building and Construction Trades Department.

2. The Building and Construction Trades
Department, if and when it deems it
appropriate, is authorized to establish a
Carpenters’ Organizing Committee for the
purpose of providing opportunities to
workers in the carpentry trades to work in
solidarity with the affiliates of the Building and
Construction Trades Department.

3. The structure of the Carpenters’ Organizing
Committee shall be determined by the Building
and Construction Trades Department.

4. Upon the recommendation of the Building
and Construction Trades Department, the
president of the AFL-CIO is authorized to issue a charter or certificate of affiliation to the
Carpenters’ Organizing Committee.
