Section 14 K of the BCPC Constitution states:

A majority of delegates attending the convention shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. Each delegate shall be entitled to one vote. No proxy representation shall be allowed.

LOCK AND LOAD!

If you want to drive the membership away from the union, have the officers debate and argue the fine points of Roberts rules and constitutional law in the meeting.
The majority of the membership could give a shit about technicalities.
Common sense should prevail.

common sense says,
quit bullshitting the members,
we all wanted canadian autonomy
do you remember Big Mac in Port Albernie
1) vote on contracts
NO
2) election of our representatives NO

How is joining the CEP any different?

LOCK AND LOAD!

it is very bad letting the members know what is happening in the union.
it is very bad to post letters that are ment to be kept secret from the members
it is very bad to let members post their opinions on the internet

Judas sold his savior for 30 pieces of silver and Benedict Arnold sold his country for a promise of a commission in the British Army. Len Embree, Pat Haggarty and company are selling out our union to the CEP - for what? Under CEP they have signed a yellow dog agreement that undercuts not only the carpenters’ and millwrights’ wages and conditions, but other building trades and workers in other industries, such as the pulp mills. They have, in the name of autonomy, squandered hundreds of thousands of dollars of our money, including strike funds, yet still we pay per capita to the International – for what?

We have a convention and chairman Embree is conveniently absent.

They are despised by other unions for what they are: incompetent, self-serving traitors to the working people they pretend to represent, and IT’S TIME THEY WERE GONE!
