IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL SHOP STEWARDS–From NYCDC
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Section 39 of the Bylaws adopted August 5, 2011 by the District Council for New York City and Vicinity of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America set forth requirements that members must meet in order to serve as Shop Stewards. This section provides that:
(D) All Shop Stewards must have on file at the Office of the Inspector General, a copy of the “Shop Steward Code of Ethics.” Any Shop Steward not having this Code of Ethics on file will not be dispatched as Shop Steward and their Shop Steward credentials will be suspended until the Code of Ethics is on file.
(E) All Shop Stewards must have on file at the Office of the Inspector General, a copy of the “Notice of Acknowledgement Regarding Background Investigation” authorizing a background check. Any Shop Steward not having such notice will not be dispatched as Shop Steward and their Shop Steward and their Shop Steward credentials will be suspended until the Notice of Acknowledgement is on file.
In order to ensure these requirements are met and to provide you with some additional information, the required forms are available for download on this website or can be obtained at the District Council or your Local Union office. The Office of the Inspector General must receive the requested materials no later than December 3, 2012. After this date, any Shop Steward that has not submitted the requested material will not be dispatched as a Shop Steward until the material has been received.
