Frank Cramer is a union leader who represents construction workers in Chicago. He made his sole appearance in "The Union Leader".
After property developer Pat McGann wished to save $40-50 million by using non-unionized labor, he attempted to appoint Betsy Sullivan as an alderman. Not wanting Betsy to have the position due to her racist mindset, Jessica Pearson attempted to convince Cramer to turn a blind-eye to McGann and accept a bribe in exchange for allowing McGann to break union laws. Aware of McGann's nature and not wanting to sell out his workers, Cramer refused. As Jessica left, Tyler approached her and grabbed her arm, prompting Chicago police officer Nick D'Amato to restrain him.
Shortly after, Jessica invited Cramer out and informed him that she had a sworn testimony from a Chicago police officer that Tyler has assaulted her, which would be in violation of his parole. She offered to agree not to pursue the matter if Cramer took the payout, and with Cramer having mentioned his financial woes a few moments earlier, he agreed.
