247 Members Vote to Send Smaller Delegation

Local 247 members have decided that it's a good idea to send a reduced delegation to the International Convention later this year. In votes held throughout the province from March 17-21, members were asked to vote on the Local sending 10 delegates instead of the 20 that the Local was designated by the International Union. Eighty-seven percent (87%) of people agreed with the decision of the Executive Board and voted "yes" to the reduction. "It only makes sense with all the Negotiations we have scheduled for the year that we look at sending a smaller group," commented 247 President Gib Whitlock, "I thank the members for supporting our recommendation."

Nomination meetings will be held during the week of April 21-25 and results announced shortly after that.
