1764 Pippenger and Frigo v. Local Union 1949 Executive Board

Case No: 1764


Concerns about the general administration of the local union should be addressed at a membership meeting through the democratic processes embodied in the local union bylaws. If appellants’ efforts to persuade the membership to act in response to their concerns are frustrated, they have recourse to the appellate procedures described in Article 33 of the UAW Constitution. All of the appellants’ charges were properly rejected pursuant to Article 31, §3(d) of the Constitution because they raise questions that should be decided by the membership at a membership meeting and not by a trial committee.
