DISTRICT LODGE 140 EXECUTIVE BOARD ELECTIONS

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Executive Board Elections will be held at our upcoming DL140 Convention being held in Halifax,
Nova Scotia on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 23 and 24, 2018.

There are to be nine (9) Board Members to be elected – one (1) from “Air Transport”, one (1) from
“Service” and one (1) “At-Large”, from each of the three (3) Regions. The Western Region includes
British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The Central Region includes Ontario. The
Eastern Region includes Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces.

Any Member in good standing and meeting the qualification requirements in Article 5.07 of the DL140
Bylaws will be eligible to run. Those qualifications are:

a) A minimum of two (2) years continuous good standing in the IAMAW.

b) Attended a minimum of fifty percent (50%) of regular quorum meetings of the Local
Lodge that their shifts would allow in the previous twelve (12) months prior to the close
of nominations.

c) Any Member wishing to be a Candidate must submit a letter, to the DL140 Secretary-
Treasurer, that if nominated the said member would accept the nomination. Included
with this letter, there must be a letter signed and sealed from their Local Lodge
Recording Secretary attesting the Member is in accordance with the above requirements.

Both these letters must be forwarded to the DL140 ST, at least thirty (30) days
prior to the opening of the Convention (Friday, September 21, 2018).

At the Convention, Regional caucuses will be held attempting to reach consensus on the Board
Members from each Region. Failing consensus on any of the Board Members within the Regional
caucus will result in an election on the Convention floor by the delegation.

Please post and circulate this Bulletin to ensure that all potential Candidates are aware of the
qualification requirements. If any further information is required regarding this matter, please
feel free to contact the undersigned.

In Solidarity,

Alfredo Acrobati
Secretary-Treasurer
Transportation District Lodge 140, IAMAW
