The idea is to have delegates chosen in each local to become not merely voters on election day, but to be integrated into the governance of the New York District Council. The concept would confer upon these delegates a critical, indeed, a decisive role on a whole range of aspects of district council business. For example, these delegates to the council, to be called council delegates, they would in fact review and finally approve all collective bargaining agreements with all of the subcontractors who may or may not be problematically deficient with respect to the integrity of these contracts.
Secondly, these delegates, these council delegates would have the authority to oversee and approve all expenditures at the district council level. These council delegates would have the authority to require elaborate and detailed reports from the executive board and the ultimate right of approval of what would then be recommendations and not fiat from this executive board.
