1536 Adams v. Local Union 174

Case No: 1536


The notice of the steward election clearly stated that only members with continuous good standing for a period of one year prior to the election stand nominated for office, and Adams did not meet this qualification. Adams was never nominated for office, so he could not be elected by acclamation, as he claimed. The Local Union President did not need to file an election protest to correct this situation once it came to light.
