THE UNITED BROTHERHOOD OF CARPENTERS AND JOINRS OF AMERICA - LOCAL 150 - CAMARILLO.
Nobody seems to like thses guys. They employ some shady tactics to protest people who do not use their services or hire their workers.
Case in point: The Arroyo Grande Ice Cream Parlor - Doc Burnsteins - decided to open a location in the Santa Maria Town Center Mall. The mall hired some local carpenters to work on the space Doc Burnsteins would occupy. The Carpenters Union didn't like this, so, they started picketing Doc Burnsteins shop with a huge banner which read SHAME ON DOC BURNSTEINS. Doc Burnsteins didn't actually have anything to do with who worked on the space in the mall. The same is true for K.T's gymnastics who is relocating into the mall. They were also picketed with a large banner saying basically the same thing. After several of these incidents, a local Union decided to show that not all union are stinkers, like theae guys, and bought everyone free ice cream on a Friday afternoon and educated the public that they don't stoop to the type of dirty tactics that the Local 150 Carpenters do.
