Painters union votes not to join carpenters

A New Jersey unit of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades has voted not to jump ship and seek representation with another union, the National Labor Relations Board announced Thursday.

The unit - belonging to District Council 711 in Egg Harbor Township - is made up of about 580 members working in the drywall finishing trade. They had the choice to join the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, which has headquarters in Washington, D.C., and has several locals throughout New Jersey.
