Members of Local 1596 voted to amend our existing Constitution and By-Laws at the February 2013 union meeting. These changes were submitted to the International for review. This summer, these changes were returned to the Local, signed and approved by General President Schaitberger of the International Association of Firefighters.
The new Constitution and By-Laws are hereby in effect, and are being updated on the web site. Union members, please take a moment to review these changes. You can log in to the web site and view them there, or email Secretary Darling for a copy.
Please note that in General President Schaitberger's letter that accompanied this approval, he suggested several minor changes, and directly required that one other change be made at our earliest convenience. It is our hope to address these issues in the near future.
Please feel free to contact an Executive Board member with any questions or comments on this issue.
