The union e-board members are allowed DOUBLE influence over union events.
They are the ones the make the recommendations to the members, but then they vote again with the members.
The union executive officers (president, vp, secretary) don't get a vote when the members are voting, why do the e-board members get to vote twice?
The e-board made its recommendation to the members it should be the members that get to vote on whatever the issue is. The fact that the e-board members not only get to vote on whether they support or reject an issue and then get to vote during the general vote skews the results.
There were at least 6 e-board members at the vote on Monday, they voted "NO" which is the recommendation they gave to the general membership. If those e-board members were not allowed to vote with the general membership the monday vote would have been
31 No 29 Yes!
And right now the election results would be 33 "NO" 38 "YES"
The more you see how our union operates the more troubling it becomes
