    The delegates will continue to meet periodically will voice but no vote with the exception of trial committee recommendations as prescribed by the Constitution. 

    The current E-Board will continue to meet under the same conditions.

    Spencer assured us that they are taking a very methodical approach to rebuilding our Council he answered delegates questions in a very straightforward manner. 

    There were questions on fund documents, minutes and financial records being withheld in the past - he seemed shocked and stated that these members should have access to these documents.


I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
