ELECTION CENTRAL REGION – NEW GENERAL CHAIRPERSON POSITION
DESIGNATED AIR CANADA TECHNICAL OPERATIONS
& LOGISTICAL SUPPLY

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As a result of the appointment of Bro. Lou Pagrach to the position of Grand Lodge Political Action
Representative, the Transportation District 140 Executive Board unanimously agreed to postpone the
General Chairperson election in the Central Region pending that the following motion be adopted:

“11.01.08 – There shall be one (1) General Chairperson designated for Air Canada Technical
Operations and Logistical Supply in the Central Region. This designated General Chairperson
shall be nominated by and elected by only those members who are employed in Air Canada
Technical Operations and Logistical Supply in the Central Region. Members represented by
this designated General Chairperson are not eligible to vote for the designated Service, the
designated Airport Screener or the designated Air Canada General Chairpersons. They are
eligible to vote for all Central Region At Large General Chairpersons”.

The above mentioned motion was moved, seconded and carried by the requisite vote at the
Transportation District 140 Convention held in October 2016, by the Convention Delegates. As such,
Dispensation from the Grand lodge office has been granted to immediately conduct an election in the
Central Region for a Designated Air Canada Technical Operations and Logistical Supply General
Chairperson in order to backfill the vacant General Chairperson position previously held by Bro. Lou
Pagrach in accordance with the above noted Bylaw.

Per Transportation District 140 Bylaws Article 11.03 nominations for this position will take place at the
December General Membership meetings of all Local Lodges (2323, 2413, 2921) within the Central
Region, under the jurisdiction of the District.

Article 11.03.01 states:

“within twenty (20) days of the Local Lodge meeting where nomination(s) were closed,
the accepted nominee must deliver to the District ST a letter, signed and bearing the LL
seal by his or her Local Lodge Recording Secretary, stating that the nominee meets the
eligibility requirements of this Article. In addition, the nominee must submit a signed
letter stating their acceptance of the nomination.”

In order to qualify for office, nominees must meet the requirements of Article V, Section 5.07 of the
Transportation District 140 Bylaws. Members wishing to stand as Candidates should fully acquaint
themselves with all of the terms and conditions of Article XI of the Transportation District 140 Bylaws.     …/2
