The board meets regularly throughout the year (except for July and August), and is charged with doing the work delegated to it by the local. The President chairs all executive meetings. Members of the board are also responsible for the proper and effective functioning of all committees, and all serve as shop stewards.
Meetings with executive members must be arranged through the union office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning (306) 966-7015.
