Lyle Norlander had been nominated for the position of Business Agent for Edmonton and accepted that nomination. However, the Election Committee, upon review of the union attendance records found that he had not attended enough union meetings in accordance with the International union Constitution and Bylaws to be eligible to run for that position. One needs to have attended at least six of the ten meetings held during the one year time period prior to the nomination meeting in November.
There are currently two positions available for 3rd Year School, starting immediately.
