The meeting was called to order at 7:30pm.
The IRS report was mailed to the IRS, National and District 11. This was due by May 15th so it will be received timely. Ardeth does not have a summary of our accounts for today’s meeting.
We will be holding Executive Board Local elections and other voting matters later this year, so we need to establish an election committee. Laura made a motion that we select Ben Konrady (Everett FO), Steffen Pleiness (ATSC) and Quiana Thornton (ATSC); Ardeth seconded. Motion passed.
Laura and Tim participated in an arbitration hearing in Roseburg regarding a violation of Article 3, Section 2A of the Contract (employee rights). Arbitrator Don Olsen presided over a full-day hearing on the issue, and we expect a decision within approximately a month.
Ivan made a motion that this evening’s LBM minutes be approved as written; John seconded. Motion passed.
James moved to adjourn at 8:00pm; John seconded. Motion passed.
Minutes written and submitted by Laura Novakoski, Secretary.
