4 Reasons Mc Garvey & Trump are Made for Each Other –

Both use workers to advance issues for themselves! Both exploit workers in the name of business! McGarvey – concessions and business friendly International and Building Trades Agreements on behalf of the BT’s; Trump – demonstrated history of not paying workers and contractors.

McGarvey In Way Over His Head With Trump –

Will This Be the Year Brother Mc Garvey Mentions Organizing During the Legislative Conference –

The focus of most of the Keynote will be on upcoming political elections as it should be.

Just like the magnet in the picture – the non-union is retaining our skilled union trained Building Trades workers in a very systematic way. Think of the magnet as the 88% of market share the non/anti-union has, which is still unfortunately growing. Still growing because all the trades still insist on using a completely failed,… Continue Reading

A week after the Keynote by Brother Sean Mc Garvey speaking at the National Building Trades conference, reality confronts his speech & strategies. Understand that Brother Sean reflects the General President’s vision, or rather their continued misplaced confidence of the wholly failed strategy of Value on Display.
