  • Executive/Trial Board
    113 of the United Association Constitution should make it clear that there should not be any conflict between the duties of the Local Executive Board and the local union officers Section 113 clearly states The Local Union Executive Board shall between the meetings of the local union transact such business as may be referred to it by the local union or the duly elected Local Union Officers Thus the Local Executive Board has no constitutional authority to assume to itself the authority or power to act on its own motion and assume control and supervision over any matter or business of the local union unless it is referred to it by the local union or the local union officers As local union members the members of the Local Executive Board have all the rights and privileges of any other member and may very well make motions as members at local union meetings which would require that certain business be referred to the Local Executive Board for disposition Other than that they are not local union officers and only function as officers when they meet in a body as the Local Executive Board We cannot emphasize too strongly that a Local Executive Board does not have authority to run the affairs of the local union This is the responsibility of the duly elected officers and specifically the Business Manager under the provisions of Sections 103 and 104 of the United Association Constitution The Local Executive Board only has authority between membership meetings to consider and act upon matters referred to it by the local union membership meetings or by the duly elected officers March 2012 Executive Board Report The Executive Board has had a very busy start to 2012 As read out at the January General Meeting there has been a substantial increase in the number charges referred to the board requiring an increased number of Trial Board dates outside of the usual Executive Board schedule By the time you read this the Trial Board will have sat for 30 separate trials most related to members working for non signatory contractors however several trials were heard for UA Local 488 Working Rules and Bylaw violations On another note the board is seeing an increase in the number of instances whereby some members are being rude and disrespectful to their fellow workers This is disturbing brothers and sisters We have all been put into awkward and stressful situations on the job at one time or another However as mature and professional adult trades people we are expected to deal with these situations as such Your Executive Board takes a very dim view of these kinds of instances and if referred to us either by way of Standard for Excellence issues or by formal charges they will not be taken lightly If the board finds fault or guilt whatever the case may be we will deal with the matter appropriately Please let s show some respect and consideration for each other brothers and
