Really dissapointed that our union is now being run primarily by CEP and shipbuilders. Are not most of our members British Columbia Carpenters? So much for representative democracy

I am a bc carpenter and the majority of the executive board is still carpenters, It is time you put up or shut up, if you are a carpenter that thinks more carpenters should be on the executive board then run for a position.
