1505 Karniewicz v. Local 1999 Executive Board

Case No: 1505


Karniewicz’ charge was properly disqualified under Article 31, §3(c), for his allegations do not sustain a charge of a violation of the Constitution or conduct unbecoming a union member. Karniewicz has not explained what he found objectionable about the Shop Chairperson’s apparently innocuous jest. He states that he regarded the statement as threatening, but it is difficult to imagine what the nature of the alleged threat was. In this sense the charge also lacked the specificity required by Article 31, §3(a).
