SPECIAL UNION MEETING

The August 6, 2015 union meeting will be a Special Meeting called for 2 reasons.  The first is to seek nominations for the following offices:  Business Agent (3 yr. term); Recording Secretary (2 yr. term); 2 Executive Board Members (2 yr. term each); 1 Medical Trustee (3 yr. term); 1 Pension Trustee (3 yr. term).  

As provided in Article XX of the International Constitution and Bylaws, in order to be eligible for the position of local union president, vice president, business manager/financial secretary or business agent, a member must have worked as a member of the International for at least five (5) years; worked as a mechanic for at least two (2) years; been in continuous good standing for at least two (2) years; been a member of Local 24 for at least two (2) years and in attendance at a majority of regular local union meetings held during the twelve (12) months prior to the date of nomination. The elected Business Agent shall also be a delegate to the International Convention by reason of his or her election.  In order to be eligible for any other position, a member must have worked as a mechanic for at least one (1) year and been in continuous good standing for at least two (2) years. Be advised that any officer who accepts nomination for a different office must vacate the office he presently holds in order to run for that different office unless his current term of office expires when the term of the office sought starts.  If this occurs, nominations will be accepted for all open offices and any office that may become vacant by reason of a currently serving officer’s acceptance of nomination for another office.  A candidate for local union office may be nominated in his or her absence, if there is a written communication from him or her signifying willingness to serve presented at the nominations meeting.

Additionally, we will be taking a Strike Vote, “…to authorize the Business Manager, in consultation with the Local 24 Negotiating Committee, to declare strike action in support of the Union’s bargaining positions and/or in protest of any unfair labor practices committed by employers currently covered by contracts with Local 24, if the Business Manager and Negotiating Committee determine that such actions are necessary and appropriate in order to protect the rights and interests of the Local 24 Membership”.
