Shame on DeVry University

"A rat is a contractor that does not pay all of the employee’s area standard wages, including either providing or making payments for family health care.
Shame on DeVry University for contributing to the erosion of area standards for carpenter craft-workers. Adobe Drywall is performing work for general contractor, Kennedy Design Build, at the DeVry campus at 2149 W. Dunlap in Phoenix, Arizona. Adobe does not meet area labor standards for all its carpenter craft workers on all projects including fully paying for family health benefits and pension.
Carpenters Local 1506 objects to substandard wage employers like Adobe working in the community and in our opinion, the community ends up paying the tab for employee health care and the non area standard wages they pay tend to lower general community standards, thereby encouraging crime and other social ills.
Carpenters Local 1506 believes that DeVry has an obligation to the community to see that area labor standards are met for construction work being performed at their offices. Carpenters Local Union 1506 is involved in a labor dispute with Adobe Drywall over this issue.
Please call Vickie L. May at (602) 870-9222 and tell her that you want her to do all she can to change this situation and see that area labor standards are met on all DeVry projects.
The members and families of Carpenters Local 1506 thank you for your support. For more information call (602) 643-1506.
WE ARE NOT URGING ANY WORK TO REFUSE TO WORK NOR ARE WE URGING ANY ANY SUPPLIER TO REFUSE TO DELIVER GOODS."
