CMAW Executive Board Announcement

To All CMAW Local Unions for immediate release
On April 24, 2007, the CMAW Executive Board unanimously ratified a motion approving the replacement CMAW Constitution. 'This task has not been an easy one', says Jan Noster, CMAW President.

'The existing Constitution required unanimous support from all 16 members of the Executive Board, and to achieve unanimity is a feat in itself. We are confident that this democratic and transparent Constitution will be accepted by our members so that we can all join together in taking the next steps of building this Union with a Canadian-made Constitution', Noster said.

The replacement Constitution will now be mailed out to the entire CMAW membership and members will be asked to review the Constitution and mail in their ballots. Your Executive Board member will be calling for a Local Union meeting in your area to discuss the Constitution prior to the deadline of your ballot return date.

Once the ballots are counted, by an independent body, and the members have approved it, notice will be sent out calling for a CMAW Convention.

By this time next year cmaw locals will be UBCJA locals and the new constitution won't even be fit for the toilet paper it was originally intended to be. jan nostril will be a clac rep and randy will still be giving handjobs to dave coles.

Well, this is interesting Jan, but it seems to me that some of your tactics, as well as those of Dave Coles et al, are not so different than the International. You will have to do a lot more to convince me that your current direction is a positive one for BC carpenters.

Who cares about Alberta? What about B.C. we are sick of having to go to Alberta for work. Why didn't Jan organize anything here at home in the last few years. They sign up with Clac over there and brag about getting work!? That move only lowered the bar for everybody. No wonder they fired him.

Did'nt you know Jan could not organize a circle jerk in a round room.First if you want to organize men they have to respect you and the union you belong to.Lets see who we are dealing with.Jan Noster
Randy Smith Bill Duck Len Embree and all the other minions too minor to mention.All these morons did was get into a pissing match with the international this cost the members of 1995 millions of dollars they will never get back.They destroyed the apprenticeship program.They gave the companys control of the hiring board. This taking away all the power the union had over these companys the drywall companys most of all.they destroyed the pension fund by half and are still working on the other half. now exactly what is Noster going to offer the nonunion sector. Worst conditions then they put up with now.You people are a joke before you can offer union membership you have to have a union.
