1629 Russell v. Local Union 1292 Executive Board

Case No: 1629


The basic allegation against Smeltekop in Russell’s charge is that he lost his temper and used vulgar language when the issue was raised about the Paragraph (71) list. That accusation does not describe conduct unbecoming a union member or a violation of the UAW Constitution, so the Local 1292 Executive Board properly disqualified Russell’s charge pursuant to Article 31, §3(c).
