“It was not my original intent to do I&D, but given the outcry of my industry contacts and being local to Boston, I found it better to hire labor independently because we had the advantage of adding people to a project by name. This gave rise to us being able to obtain direct union personnel through Local 25 teamsters.” – Bob Dobinski
CorpEvents provides a large array of A/V rentals, special furniture along with custom carpet solutions, 16,000 sq. ft. of advance warehouse facilities allows for convenient transport and freight services to Boston and other New England States including up-state New York. Additional general contractor services include pipe and drape, furniture and all services for any size events.
“It was not my original intent to do I&D, but given the outcry of my industry contacts and being local to Boston, I found it better to hire labor independently because we had the advantage of adding people to a project by name. This gave rise to us being able to obtain direct union contracts.” – Bob Dobinski
The merger of two other Boston-area unions created a unique opportunity for Corp-Events. In 2012, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 82 combined with Teamsters Local 82 following the conviction of four of its members for racketeering. Combining union responsibilities included absorbing membership – this grew Local 25’s approximately 400 workers into the thousands, thereby increasing the manpower and level of service to exhibitors.
In the wake of the insolvency of Local 82, Corp-Events entered into a general contracting agreement. Starting with a list of 24 permanent employees, the firm would be able to handpick talent beyond the four permanent employees mandated by I&D agreements that typically require any additional workers be assigned by the union from a referral pool.
“Due to the misgivings of [union] management, the city gained an opportunity to better serve exhibitors from the increase in service level and number of workers.” – Bob Dobinski
Along with this change was a strategic decision to service organizations from outside of Boston. Expanding its reach throughout New England, Corp-Events became a signatory to service agreements in niche markets often overlooked by national companies. These areas include Providence, R.I., predominantly serviced by the local laborers union, as well as Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and upstate New York where there are no strong union affiliations.
