This has been a challenging campaign season with some in our community intentionally mispresenting my professional life. Therefore, I thought it is appropriate to share this development. In my capacity as legal counsel to the RI Building Trades and chairman of Building Futures I participated in negotiations drafted agreements in which Brown University agreed to utilize "all-union labor, Building Futures support on construction projects over $25 million."
I know of no other university in the country where this has happened.
I do not represent developers nor any workers that do residential construction. I just represent regular hard union working tradesmen/women and contractors who work exclusively on institutional, industrial, and commercial construction projects, and I am proud to do so. To date, only one of these projects has been in NK, and that was at Quonset.
