A brief speech given by Brother Horace Daley at the
June 1997 Monthly Meeting was marred by an obnoxious
question from a certain member as to whether
someone else had written Brother Daley's words
Brother Daley and others felt very strongly that this totally
inappropriate remark had racist overtones and that
the notion that a minority person not being able to think
for himself was typical of idiotic backward thinking
June 1997 marks the 25th anniversary of the Watergate
break-in that finally resulted 2 years later with indictment,
resignations, jail terms, and finally the resignation
of President Nixon in August of 1974.
Nixon is an example of a person at the top who cannot
or will not stop obvious wrongdoing and subsequently
Brother Horace Daley spoke briefly at the June, 1997
Local 230 Members'Meeting in regard to the illegal
picket line at Babbidge Library at UCONN.
"The reason for my actions was that the picket line
The line was put up because the Steward lost his job.
To me that is a management problem and this I saw as
a power play between the big wheels.
I felt that this problem should have
been resolved without a line.
I was told that I could look for my own job.
Now that I found work, Management [Local 230 Bosses]
comes in and puts up a line.
Because one person loses his job does management
deem that the whole brotherhood go hungry ? "

An illegal picket line by the bosses of Local 230 resulted
in the loss of wages for Laborers at the
Babbidge Library at UCONN.
Contractors on the job site lost two days of
productiviy along with the non-union
construction management firm, Charles Klewin Co.
With big jobs going non-union at UCONN and
one of them [UCONN Field House, Konover
Construction] just one block away, this ill-advised
and embarrassing incident by Local 230's bosses
only gives other contractors a distorted
perception of the "liability" of "going union"..
The question can be raised as to the reasoning
[or lack of] for not using an "Informational
Demostration" at the non-union Konover job
which has been in progress for over a year.
Do Local 230's bosses only take on a small
contractor because they know that they can "bully" him ?
