Divisions must be 'square on the books' to seat delegates

With the upcoming First Quadrennial Convention of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen scheduled for June 19-22, all BLET Divisions are reminded that their secretary-treasurers must file their monthly dues reports in a timely fashion in order to seat their delegates at the convention.

Section 23, page 31, of the BLET Bylaws states: "Any delegate whose division is not square on the books and any division that has not paid its pro rata assessments, as provided in these Bylaws, also its indebtedness to other divisions, shall not be allowed a seat in the ND."

The convention begins June 19.

It is essential that each Division ensure that the April 2006 Dues Remittance report is filed prior to the opening of the convention.

All BLET division secretary-treasurers were formally reminded of this constitutional requirement in a letter dated March 2 from National Secretary-Treasurer Bill Walpert.

The First Quadrennial Convention, held once every four years, will take place at Bally's in Las Vegas, Nevada, from June 19-22, 2006.
