Union v. Union: IBEW Calls Out Cannibalistic Carpenters' Union

Sometimes, cannibals get into fights over the same piece of meat.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers is launching a sweeping campaign to convince St. Louis Carpenters Local 57 to stop performing electrical work that undercuts union standards of quality, safety and wages.

Billboards have been mounted in several locations, and the message can be seen and heard in radio and print ads this week. A unity rally June 15 drew more than 1,000 members from several craft unions to hear national leaders of the IBEW and other trades.

We posted on this fight back in April.
