INFORMATION LEAFLET - LOCAL 199 ELECTION
The Executive of Local 199 has been asked when an election will be called due to Wayne Gates, our President being elected as MPP of Niagara Falls.
Bruce Allen has been acting President since January, 2014 and would like to call for an election. The problem is, Wayne needs to resign his position as President as soon as possible, then an election will be called to fill the position of Vice President and any other vacant positions in our local union.
Our Bylaws state (Article 6, Par. 12l) that if the President's office becomes available that the Vice President will fill in for the remainder of the term.
With this being said, we would like to thank Wayne for his many years of service with our Local and the positions he held since becoming a member of Local 199. Just to think, Wayne started at General Motors in the Foundry in 1973 and has worked and educated himself with numerous courses to his new role of MPP in Niagara Falls. This is a magnificent accomplishment. We applaud him and wish him the very best. We know he will never stop working for the working class and all his constituents in Niagara Falls as MPP.
In closing, we will inform the membership as to when we can call the next election.
