"At the Febuary meeting of local 157 I made a motion  to the effect that local 157 would hire legal council to petition the courts to have the NYCDCC  declared a “local” under the provisions of the LMRDA.
What this would mean for members is that indirect elections for would not be an option.

a) Appointed eboards are the answer.

"There is also the issue of dues and assessments which could not be raised without a vote by the membership if the council were considered a local."

b)Take a look at the already confronted regional councils, they've mandated assesments w/out anyones approval, thank you very much. Thats what happens when you call your council a local !

Oh but it has.
