Administrators' Report

November 15, 2018

Sisters and Brothers,

I am pleased to advise you that the Administrators have now completed our Report.

We realize that there have been questions raised about the length of time it has taken to get to this point. In order to do justice to the many, many members who filed a protest, we had to fully and thoroughly review each of the more than 100 protests filed, related to the April 2018 election for Local Union Officers held by LU 1944. This meant that we had to review hundreds and hundreds of pages of documents and photos as well as interview dozens of people. We trust that you understand that all takes time.

To see the Report, please click on the following link The Report was submitted to International President Leo Gerard, the Canadian National Director Ken Neumann, District 3 Director Steve Hunt, District 5 Director Alain Croteau and District 6 Director Marty Warren and all of them have reviewed the Report. Under the authority granted to the International President in Article IV of the Constitution, President Gerard has endorsed and upheld the recommendations contained in the Report and has asked the Administrators to implement those recommendations forthwith. The Administrators will work over the coming days and weeks to determine the logistics for installing the newly elected Officers as set out in our Report and for conducting a new election for the positions of Regional Executive Officer (Alberta).

In line with the provisions of the Local Union Elections Manual, the decision to uphold the recommendations contained in our Report may be appealed by interested members of the Local Union within then (10) days of today, November 15, 2018. Such appeals must be filed with the International Secretary-Treasurer.

In solidarity,

Ron Wyatt, Administrator
