|McInnis, next boss?|
According to reliable sources, an executive committee meeting was held on Tuesday at 3:30 pm and McInnis "desperately" wants to appoint himself as EST, Pro Tem, but is wrestling with the rule in the UBC Constitution that would require him to resign the presidency in order to serve. Also several high ranking council employees have declined the top spot and a handful of others are considering and interested in the post.
A decision is expected by the end of the week and as soon as today.
The schedule of elections to fulfill the vacancy of the EST will be directed by Review Officer (RO) Dennis Walsh as per the Stipulation and Order, and is not expected to be a compressed election cycle, and may take a little over four months to complete. Assuming the RO asked Judge Berman for an order establishing June 1st as day one of the election cycle, AAA would not count the votes until October.
On Monday, April 29th, Michael Bilello, was vetoed by the RO as EST for violating several union rules — including directing a schedule pay raise into the Welfare Fund without proper authorization and letting a suspended union member work at the Javits Center and then lie about it.
