TWU Local 591 Proposed Bylaws Amendment
July 3, 2020
Brothers and Sisters,
Per the TWU Local 591 Bylaws Article XI-B the Following Bylaws Amendment proposal is being posted for TWU Local 591 Members to review, comment and provide feedback. The TWU Local 591 Executive Board to review all comments and feedback before any determination is made.
A Local 591 Bylaws amendment was submitted at the June 2020 Executive Board Meeting for Board approval by the 591 Treasurer Glenn Olsen and Recording Secretary Jorge Rojas.
In response to the global coronavirus pandemic situation and increased usage of cell phones by all of Local 591 Shop Stewards. The cell phone has become a tool in the shop stewards tool box. The phone is not only used for verbal communication. It is used for filing grievances & attaching files through the 591 App. Technology is evolving and rapidly changing. Today everything is accomplished through the smart phone. I would like to propose the following Bylaws addition.
Section Five: Salaries
S. All Shop Stewards receive a smart phone cell allowance. Amount the same amount as chairmen.
The Local 591 Executive Board will review all feedback at the August 12th, 2020 Executive Board Meeting. Please submit Feedback by August 10, 2020 by sending comments to Info@Local591.com.
