To all Local 4304 members,
At the December 2018 General Membership Meeting the membership approved an amendment to the Local 4304 By-Laws to reduce quorum for General Membership Meetings from 25 to 15. Effective Monday, March 18, 2019, the National Union has given their approval to this by-law amendment under the condition that, in Appendix A of the By-Laws, the Pier Diem amount for when no overnight stay is required is amended to be $20 per the National Union Policy regarding Local Union Expenses, these changes take effective immediately. The approval letter from the National Union is available upon request.
The approved/amended Local 4304 By-Laws are now available for download in the members-only area on the Local 4304 website under ‘Your Union’ > ‘Constitution & By-Laws’.
In addition, the Constitution & By-Laws Committee and Recording Secretary continue to review the By-Laws as a whole and plan to introduce a comprehensive package of by-law amendments at the June General Membership Meeting for the membership to review and consider over the summer months. The goals of the upcoming by-law amendment package are to clean up existing language, eliminate various grey areas, streamline operations of the Local and codify good governance practices; stay tuned for more information in this regard.
Yours in solidarity,
Unifor Local 4304
