A Section 59. There shall be established and maintained by the United Brotherhood a Pension Plan for such officers and representatives as may be eligible, including such other employees as may be necessary to maintain qualification of the Plan as a tax exempt trust within the meaning of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. The Pension Plan shall be known as “United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America Pension Plan.”
B The United Brotherhood and each Local Union, District, Regional, State, Provincial and other Councils shall pay each month to the Trustees of the Pension Plan the contributions owed with respect to each officer, representative, and employee covered by the Plan, which shall be a standing appropriation and shall not require a vote of the United Brotherhood, Local Union or Council. The General Executive Board is authorized to determine the amount of contributions payable to the Pension Plan.
C The Trustees of the Pension Fund shall be appointed by the General President with the approval of the General Executive Board.
Section 60. All Laws or parts of Laws previously enacted by the United Brotherhood, and standing decisions of the General Executive Board, in conflict with the Constitution of the United Brotherhood, are hereby repealed and the General Executive Board is hereby authorized and empowered to make any needed changes as required by the vote of the delegates to the Convention of the United Brotherhood.
** Criminal Racketeering at its finest; and the dead beat United States Attorneys Office and Preet Bhararra & Benjamin Torrance does nothing and allows the racketeering to go on unabated.
** CODIFICATION: (Black's Law; 8th Edition, pg. 275) n. 1. The process of compiling, arranging, and systemizing the laws of a given jurisdiction, or of a discrete branch of the law, into an ordered code. 2. The code that results from this process.
The UBCJA International is not the sovereign; either at the state level nor at the federal level; therefore, it has no authority to codify anything as statute (law) in any manner or forum whether locally, statewide or on a national level. Nor does the UBCJA International possess the power to negate, alter, amend, add to or delete anything from any state or federal law as it sees fit and of particularity can it void ab initio any current NLRB Board, Federal Appellate Court or United States Supreme Court precedent decision & order it sses fit - but in New York City under the ver nose of the so called watchdog - the alleged U.S. Attorneys Office it does so not only with impunity, but with the blessing and direct participation of the USAO's corrupt attorneys.
Pension Fund contributions to International Officers most certainly require a direct vote of every member at the Local Union level or; should the Council be the Local Union - at the Council level prior to enactment and payment of contributions on the officers behalf.
