BLISSMER VS CAMPBELL,BOVA
EXTORTION OF MEMBERS RIGHTS
I, John Burch, member laborers local 81 make
the following statements with the belief that these statements
are true. In early April 1999 I was called to work at the Kouts
School, Kouts IN, for Larson/Danielson contractors. It was told
to me in the following weeks by supervision that when my name
was given to Mike Campbell to fill a job order his reply was,
are you sure you want that guy, I have 120 mason tenders on the
list is that the guy you want.
From then on Mike Campbell tried an many
occasions to have me dismissed from my job with this company.
Mike CAMPBELL WOULD TELL THE SUPERINTENDENT
WHY DON'T YOU LAY THAT GUY OFF I CAN GET YOU A GOOD MAN TO TAKE
Once on a rain day when I failed to clean
out the mixer it led to a 45 minute delay the following day. Mike
Campbell heard about this he told the superintendent
WHY DON'T YOU FIRE HIM.
This same superintendent has told these accounts
to me and other Laborers. The reason I believe Mike Campbell would
want to get me removed from my job is solely because I have been
an outspoken critic of Business agent Frank Bova and his fairness
