Is the New England Carpenters Union In-VINCE-able?

Well the Missus and I trundled down to the Public Garden last evening and say, it was swell – beautiful night, beautiful garden.

(It was also our 31st wedding anniversary – beautiful! And a good start, yeah?)

Along the way, we plucked this flyer off a car windshield on Newbury Street:

SHAME ON

VINCE

Shame on VINCE for contributing to the erosion of area standards for carpenter craft workers. Landmark Retail Group is the contractor on VINCE’S job located at 71 Newbury Street Boston, MA.

The NEW ENGLAND REGIONAL COUNCIL OF CARPENTERS has a Labor dispute with Landmark Retail Group over its failure and its subcontractors’ failure to provide area standard wages and benefits.

And etc.

The thing is, when you go to the New England Regional Council Whatever’s website, there’s nothing at all about this uprising. And plug “New England Carpenters VINCE” into the Googletron, and you get this:

So it’s the tony retailer that likely will be inVinceble in this rumpus.

Labor unions, take note: Flyers on windshields do not a campaign make.

  1. Didn’t there used to be a political party to help unions get their message out?
