IBEW president Hill upholds Canadian member's rights

By Matt Noyes, Union Democracy Review #167
In sustaining Speranza's appeal, Hill rejected the argument that Speranza was himself responsible for everything posted by other users of the site. Speranza managed the open forum responsibly, Hill said, noting that IBEW members who run independent web sites cannot be expected to "inspect every conversation as to its accuracy and whether it violated a provision of the IBEW constitution" and cannot be subject to union discipline based on comments by others.
