1511 Espinosa v. Local Union 719
Case No: 1511
Espinosa was ineligible to serve as Local Union Shop Chairperson because of her status as a temporary employee. She argues that she should no longer be classified as temporary after having worked at Electro-Motive for nine years, but that is a different issue. The Union allowed GM to maintain these employees as temporary in order to keep this plant operating. As of this date, the Union has not been able to achieve permanent status for these employees through collective bargaining.
