    Default petition for steward

    About a year ago we put a petition up to get a guy out of being our steward. The majority felt like he wasn't representing is in the right way. So we got a new on that we all wanted. He did what wet needed or there, he didn't let the company get away with any thing. Well the union felt like he was causing a problem between the company and union so the pulled him from that position and put someone else in who did nothing. Now that guy quit and the union put the original guy in that got voted out in the first place. My question is can the hall stop a petition? Because we want to vote him out again and we feel that they will deny us.

    I researched this as your contract may be different or similar but there should be language in it regarding Shop Stewards,found this on Brown Cafe,if your BA isn't giving you answers go up the chain to local president,joint council as so on.

    The IBT Constitution allows Locals to decide if they want stewards elected by the members or appointed by the Principal Officer. Check your Local By-Laws to see which method your Local uses. Either way, ask your Principal Officer what the proceedure is for getting a new steward. Maybe it's in the By-laws, maybe it's written down somewhere else. Find someone who has been around long enough to know how it was done in the past.

    If you don't have elected stewards, you can change the By-Laws by submitting a motion at a January monthly meeting, that will be voted on in March.

    It is in our by-laws that the Local can appoint stewards. Was curious if we were to file another petition could they shoot it down? If so could we then go beyond the Local to get this solved.

    You can always try another petition. Sounds like the person they appointed is involved with the local, so in that respect, don't expect to change anything.
    Your question of going over the local would most likely result in no change.
    Each local is allowed to govern per it's by-laws.

    It's a difficult dilemma,your trying to oust the Locals "guy",first would ask the steward if he would step down and cite your reason,you can't ask him to go if you just "don't like him",if that doesn't work yes again take a petition to your local and cite your reasons,you don't want to make an enemy of them but you have a right to be represented at your barn,believe you can change the by laws by submitting a motion at monthly meeting but that's the long way around your problem,better to try and sort it out peacefully.
