POSTPONED!! 2020 Constitutional Convention

-

As our union continues to grapple with the COVID-19 crisis, the International Executive Board (IEB) made the difficult decision to pass a resolution postponing our 2020 constitutional convention.

The health and safety of our members and staff is our paramount concern, and there are still too many unknowns for us to responsibly proceed as previously scheduled.

We are still being advised to limit non-essential travel and avoid large, public gatherings. Further, the MGM Grand suspended its operations on March 12, and as of this week still had not resumed them.   

We will be holding both local union and international elections in 2021, which will require time and resources from our local unions.

For this reason, the IEB resolution postpones the convention until 2022.

Our Districts and staff are currently in the process of circulating the resolution to all our local union executive boards and helping them navigate the process of approving this action. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
