Union Democracy Review
July, 1998

In the Laborers union:

Inspector General Douglas Gow deals gently with violence. In Connecticut, where Steve Manos was assaulted in his Local 230, Ron Nobili was attacked at a district council meeting, Gow found threats of violence to be "regrettable," mildly reprimanded one of the offending officials, and stated that "everyone can learn from this experience so that it will not be repeated." Compared to this, the UN did nobly in Somalia.

An overwhelming library of documents and press reports on the Laborers consent decree and related oversight is offered, and it's all free online at http://www.laborers.org.
