The Democratic National Convention will be held in Charlotte, NC in September 2010.
North Carolina is a right-to-work; unions are not mandatory.


However, on the same day the DNC was scrambling to prove how pro-local business they are, it was revealed who they awarded the work that had been denied to John Monteith’s shop.  The work went to a company called Hargrove Inc, a shop that boasts its work force of more than 3,000 union personnel and hails from the union bastion of the Washington D.C. metro area.  They work with the biggest names in the union market.  From the Teamsters, to the Carpenters Union, union favoritism seems to be a very important reason Hargrove was selected.
The mayor can’t have it both ways. He can’t say the convention will have a $150 million local economic impact and continue to send convention contracts and jobs out-of-state.
Yet that seems to be exactly what he’s done.  The dirty little secret in all of this is that since North Carolina is a right to work state, union labor will be hard to come by locally.  Which means locals will have two choices: join a union, or don’t get the job.  Right to work just became Forced to Unionize in North Carolina.
