1729 Burgess v. UAW Local Union 600 General Council
Case No: 1729
Burgess was assigned to the Dearborn Truck Plant and he accepted nomination to run as a representative of the Dearborn Stamping Plant. Burgess was clearly ineligible to run for committeeperson from a unit that was not his assigned unit. Burgess asserted that he had grievances pending challenging his assignment to the Dearborn Truck Plant. The grievance procedure is the appropriate means to address Burgess’s arguments regarding his contractual rights. The election committee properly informed Burgess prior to the close of nominations that he was ineligible to run in the Dearborn Stamping Plant election.
