Recording Secretary, M. Demonja:
According to Laborers' International Constitution
of North America Article XXII, Charges, Trials, and Appeals, Section
Five: ... Upon conclusion of the hearings ... proceed to make
findings and decision. It shall prepare a report [and] the Recording
Secretary shall forthwith mail a copy ... to the charging party...
The dictionary meaning of "forthwith"
is, "immediately; at once".
The Trial Board met December the eighth.
At this writing it is the twenty-first of December. I, Mike Blissmer,
am requesting my copy as/per LIUNA Constitution of the Trial Board
My problem is the usual one: Is it the reading
of the English language and someone being able to interpret it
correctly, or is the delay another chapter of the Bova administrations'
deliberate slow down and stonewalling technique?
