According to our bylaws, the Union has a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, two Board Members elected at-large, for two-year terms. These officers, together with the Immediate Past President of the union, the Grievance Coordinators, the Contract implementation Officers, the Information Coordinator, and the Chairperson of the Council, shall be voting members of the Executive Board. The Grievance Coordinators, Contract Implementation Officers, and Information Coordinator are selected by the Executive Board annually.

The Executive Board acts as the elected voice of the Membership, enforcing the contract, authorizing expenditures, and establishing committees to help address the needs of our bargaining unit. The Executive Board encourages all members to be involved in our local at many different levels of decision-making and activism. For more information about how you can be involved, please email the Union office or call 313.-577-1750.
