1766 Mckinzie v. Local Union 276 Executive Board

Case No: 1766


The IEB properly rejected Mckinzie’s charge about Committeeperson Roberts’s handling of her grievance pursuant to Article 31, §3(c) of the Constitution. A complaint based solely on the handling of a grievance should not be submitted to a trial committee. Such complaints should be addressed using the appellate procedures established in Article 33 of the Constitution. Mckinzie’s claim that Roberts called her a stalker lacks the specificity required by Article 31, §1 of the Constitution. In addition, this dispute about the nature of Mckinzie’s personal relationships would not support a charge of conduct unbecoming a union member. Article 31 was not intended to resolve personal differences between members of the Union.
