TO ALL COACH OPERATORS
EMPLOYED AT THE
ORANGE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY
RE: SHOP STEWARD ELECTION
Once a contract has been negotiated and ratified, it is our policy and practice to have Shop Steward elections.
The process will begin with a nomination list at each base. Interested Coach Operators may add their name to the list or Coach Operators may be nominated by other Coach Operators. This list will be posted within the next couple of weeks.
You must be in good standing with the Union if you wish to run for a Shop Steward position. This means that your initiation must be paid in full and you must be current in your union dues. There will also be other requirements that will be posted with the nomination list.
If you chose to run, please be aware that being a Steward requires a serious commitment to both the Local Union and the Coach Operator members. You must be willing and able to donate some of your own time to assist members. You will also be required to attend monthly Shop Steward meetings, Steward training sessions and perform other necessary duties and activities.
Please check the union bulletin board from time to time for further information.
If you have any questions, please approach a Shop Steward or you may contact me directly at (714) 740-6235.
