1498 Schultz v. IEB

Case No: 1498


The documents described in Schultz’s charge were lost time vouchers and computer printouts of employee records that the Financial Secretary attached to an appeal filed pursuant to Article 33 of the Constitution. Records presented in support of Article 33 appeals frequently contain documents that reveal members’ names, addresses and Social Security numbers. Although it may be well for Local 148 to consider adopting procedures to protect members’ personal information on documents which may become part of a public record, the use of such information in support of an appeal does not constitute conduct unbecoming a union member, so the charge is inappropriate for submission to a trial under Article 31, §3(c), of the Constitution.
