1519 Frederick-Brown v. IEB
Case No: 1519
Frederick-Brown was eligible to hold the position of Bargaining Committee Chairperson under the Local Union’s bylaws and there is nothing in the UAW Constitution inconsistent with a part-time employee holding the position of Bargaining Chairperson. Furthermore, it was error to install the losing candidate in the position when Frederick-Brown was declared ineligible. The proper method of replacing an ineligible Chairperson would have been to hold another election. Frederick-Brown should be restored to her elected position and compensated for her losses.
