  McCarron Slated to Explain Consolidations
Doug McCarron, general president of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, will speak at AGC’s 2004 Midyear Meeting at a forum called Union District Council & Trust Fund Consolidations: Pros, Cons, and Pitfalls. The Union Contractors Committee-sponsored session will take place on September 30 at 9:30 a.m. The Midyear Meeting will be held September 30 - October 2, 2004, at the beautiful J.W. Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, AZ.

McCarron has been asked to address the rationale behind the current movement of intra-union consolidations and trust fund mergers, and the objectives that the unions hope to accomplish by it.  The forum will also include a panel of AGC chapter representatives providing management perspectives and sharing their experiences with such consolidations.
