I think these appointed delegates are an insult to the membership. (Not to say that there isn't a few good men among them). As for the elected delegates, that are also paid District Council employees. This is a conflict of nterest and the root of all our problems. The constitution needs to be amended as per delegates to the District Council. This is one of my biggest gripes and agendas. We can't wait another 5 years to have this amended. ps. I sent someone a list of the delegates, hopefully it will be posted on this website as well as Daniel. J Franco's website.
How is John McGrath , 1) a delegate and 2) able to appoint anyone as he isn't even a member of 2287? The guy is a member of some local in philly, so how exactly has Walsh allowed this to happen? His appointments should be suspended and he should be removed from OUR delegate body. I mean, what the F Dennis, where are you? Maybe I'll ask Judge Berman about this. We have a drunk for a President and an interloper making OUR decisions. Can you spell VETO?
It looks like Local Union 1456 is a another "Mike Forde" Style Appointees Delegate System. All appointed "Rubber Stamp" and YES men.! No Member Elected Delegates. NOT ONE! Walsh should review this in detail?
Look at the list of delegates. A strong majority of them are paid employees (the rest are appointed). They are nothing but lapdogs to the UBC. (McCarron, Spencer and Ballantyne). Shame on us for voting some of them in to represent us. We need to smarten up. Because next time there will be no next time.
