1653 Carthon v. International President
Case No: 1653
The suspension imposed by President Gettelfinger on October 23, 2009, automatically lifted on March 4, 2010, in accordance with the terms of Article 48, §5(e), of the UAW Constitution. Alvin Carthon notified the International Union of his intent to appeal the suspension on November 4, 2009. That notification was sufficient to trigger the 120 day period specified in Article 48, §5(e). The issue of Carthon’s financial liability and possible lack of good faith remains unresolved. Carthon should arrange to make restitution to the local union in accordance with the auditors’ report pending the outcome of his appeal on that issue.
