Wolf. You bring up some good points.

Capitol yes we have enough to fund a big job.

As for manpower. We do have issues like most painters with finding that perfect fit. If we do become a union shop we will have the union help at least around here finding employee's.

There is still a lot I have to look into and make sure this is a direction we may want to go.

I may have our meeting this weekend and say no thanks and stay away from unions.

As for non union competive bidding we will try some of that if the union thing doesn't seem right.

Again I still have a lot to figure out.

Just as long as you know I'm not coming down on you. Just go into it with your eyes and ears wide open.

The union is great for employees, not so much for employers.

Nah. There is and I get it just so much misinformation about the whole thing. Some of it is location I'm sure. Boston is a union town. If he is gonna want to chase the big work there he is gonna have to play ball. I think.

Point being, and why would he want that work? You know think about it.

It's ironic and the irony ought not be lost, if anyone ever paid attention
CD has had in the past no qualms about alerting authorities about contractors circumventing the lead liscence requirements he has got and has used to his advantage to jack prices. I've taken note. Well guess what? Them Union contractors, the owners and the men, they are all seeing that job and complaining up. And they ain't gonna stop. They want him in compliance, like they are.

It's not a reall big job but it's big enuff, and obviously this GC has already had his problems. And obviously he brought CD in on them. If it's too good to be true? Truth
