Committees

The Chairman of each committee shall be appointed manually by the President and approved by the majority vote of the Executive Council. 
Vacancies shall be filled in a like manner.

Each Committee Chairman shall report or cause to have reported, any activity or inactivity at all meetings of the Executive Council and General Membership.  

These committees shall perform all duties assigned to them by the Constitution and By-Laws and such additional duties as they may be directed to perform from time to time by the President, Executive Board, Executive Council or general membership.

During the December General Membership Meeting, a few things were discussed. The first being attendance by the Union Council. We do understand the many changes recently and at this time feel we have a safe way to continue meeting, virtually, and continuing to receive the information to better represent the membership. Starting January of 2021, the absentee committee will oversee the absences of council going forward and follow all the rules per the UAW Local 571 By-Laws, Article IX, sect. 11. So, it is important to make yourselves available for the meetings and continue to communicate any issues with the absentee committee. Standing Committee Chairs are part of the structure of the council and are required to attend all monthly meetings, however, Standing Committee Chairs are not an elective position and attendance for such chair will be taken but with no adverse consequence. A new 12 month running attendance starts on January 11, 2021.
