“This is my role according to the International Union of Operating Engineers Constitution, Article XXIV-Subdivision 2 Powers and Duties of Officers Section (a) President.”

“It shall be the duty of the President to preside at all meetings, enforce the Constitution, Laws, Rules, Ritual and customs of the organization; to decide all questions of order subject to an appeal to the Local Union; to cast the deciding vote in case of a tie; to sign all orders on the Treasurer for the disposition of funds authorized by the Local Union; to appoint all committees unless otherwise provided for; to be custodian of the quarterly password and examine the credentials of any member before bestowing the same; to furnish the General President full and complete information on any subject within his control or knowledge when requested; and to perform such other duties as appertain to his office or which may from time to time be delegated to him by action of the Local Union or other authorities in the organization. I would like to add, that I see it as my responsibility that to the best of my abilities, I ensure that each and every member of this union receives fair and equal treatment from anyone serving in any capacity for this union. I recognize it is my obligation to keep the membership informed about actions taken by my administration which will affect our membership. I will work to defend the contract under which this membership works, by all means necessary and available. I encourage those of you who did not check the “yes” box to be included in the mailing list when you registered to go back and do it through the edit profile section available on the main menu bar of the site. This will add your email address to a list of members who receive occasional updates from me, including links to newspaper articles and various documents of interest. Those of you who chose this option will also receive emailed versions of most relays. I strongly encourage all members to participate in all events sponsored by the union, including district lunches, monthly membership meetings, and our annual Dinner Dance. I welcome all comments and suggestions, use the link on the left to send me email.”
