@ Team DOL......Northern California

Get ready,........It's my understanding that we "may" have another UFCW Local Union Election implosion from within, here in Northern California!

You ask where?

Quote:


UFCW Local 648
1980 Mission Street
San Francisco, CA 94103-3489
Telephone: 415-861-7840

http://ufcw648.org


After reviewing UFCW Local 648's 2015 LM2 Report, you will note the following:

Quote:

19. What is the date of the labor organization's next regular election of officers? 07/2016

**********************************************
Here is the link for the DOL Website to obtain LM2 Reports.

http://kcerds.dol-esa.gov/query/getOrgQry.do

UFCW Local 648's LM2 File Number is 024-068.


So here's what I've been told as of this evenings post.

UFCW Local 648's first term President, Dan Larson,.....



........held UFCW Local 648's Local Union Election at the Local Union's office (see above address) on Friday, July 29, 2016. It is my understanding that Local 648 only had one location for Local 648's membership to come and vote on a Friday, in downtown San Francisco.

Once again using UFCW Local 648's 2015 LM2 Report, Local 648 reported the following total of members,...

Quote:
20. How many members did the labor organization have at the end of the reporting period? 4,077


Here are the figures presented to me re: the vote tally from Friday, July 29, 2016.

Quote:


Out of the 4,077 members reported from 2015......

Approx. 600 Local 648 Members Voted.


It is my understanding that President Dan Larson was DEFEATED by the following UFCW Local 648 Union Representative, Darryl Roberts by 33 votes!



Now this story gets even better!

Allegedly, from what I've been told, following Darryl Roberts recent victory as the newly elected President at UFCW Local 648, Local 648's President Dan Larson, "allegedly" turned around and fired Darryl Roberts as of July 30, 2016?

Once again, if the above is true,........

I was just informed that "allegedly" there appears to be one more termination to report as a result of the above mentioned Local 648 Union Election.

Quote:

Vice President #7: Julissa Hernandez – Organizer


It is my understanding that "former" UFCW Local 648 President Dan Larson terminated Ms. Hernandez on July 31, 2016, for "allegedly" supporting "newly elected" Local 648 President Darryl Roberts!

So I've been trying to look at this entire situation trying to determine / understand what has recently happened at UFCW Local 648?

Ok.... So an Officers Election was recently scheduled at UFCW Local 648.

Got it!

Having said that, various individuals had to fulfill some sort of nomination process at Local 648 to get nominated for a specific office etc.

Got it!

It appears that Darryl Roberts fulfilled that obligation, was nominated and subsequently ran for President at UFCW Local 648.

Got it!

During the campaign & leading up to Local 648's election, Darryl Roberts was still employed as a Union Representative at Local 648.

Got it!

Finally Local 648's election arrives and approx. 600 members from Local 648 vote.

After the votes are tallied, Darryl Roberts subsequently DEFEATS incumbent President Dan Larson by 33 votes.

Got it!

Following Mr. Roberts victory,......... President Larson FIRES Darryl Roberts and Vice President #7: Julissa Hernandez – Organizer!

Who authorized that???

Was it the I.U.?

and......

How in the FUCK did that happen and WHY?


Stay tuned for and watch closely for the following,.......

Local 8 will be trying diligently to persuade the I.U. to merge / hand over Local 648 to Local 8.

Will Local 5 "try" to prevent that?.....Maybe... If they can?

Will a new election be "ordered" at Local 648?

Who's the President at Local 648?

@ UFCW I.U. President Marc Perrone,.......

Once again, with another pre-meditated....political firing taking place as a result of another Local Union Election, what is the end game for the UFCW I.U. at Local 648?

So many unanswered question remain re: this entire matter!

With respect to Darryl Roberts and Julissa Hernandez, are they covered under a F.A.I.R. Contract at Local 648?
http://www.yourfairunion.org/index.php

If so, has F.A.I.R. filed the necessary grievances?

If not, why not?

As I recall, F.A.I.R. was AWOL when it came time to defend Roger Rivera over at Local 5 when "former" Local 5 President Lind, including the UFCW I.U. were both involved in the pre-meditated....political firing of Roger Rivera!

F.A.I.R. threw Roger Rivera under the bus and refused to help him!

Maybe,..... that is why the Union Reps over at Local 5 "allegedly" decerted F.A.I.R. over the past several months?

@ Darryl and Julissa,..... based on how the UFCW I.U., including the DOL have a history / tendency to "make deals" with each other, I would suggest that both of you try and get employment within the Industry ASAP!

Keeping in mind that the key word(s) here are maintaining your eligibility as outlined in the UFCW I.U. International Constitution. The UFCW I.U., including the DOL will SCREW you without it!

Quote:


UFCW I.U. Constitution

Excerpt(s):

ARTICLE 6

Withdrawal and Military Leave Status (page 3)

(D) Any person in withdrawal status and making application for membership in a Local Union shall be accepted as a reinstated member without the payment of a fee, except the current dues, provided such reinstatement with the Local Union within whose jurisdiction such person is employed occurs within 30 days from the date of employment within a collective bargaining unit represented by the International Union or such Local Union, or within 30 days from the date of employment by the International Union or any of its chartered bodies, unless a longer period of time is duly established by such Local Union.

Any person who is employed within a collective bargaining unit represented by the International Union or any of its chartered bodies and fails to reinstate as prescribed in this paragraph shall have his or her withdrawal status voided and shall not be reinstated to membership without the payment of the applicable fee.

*******************************************

ARTICLE 35

Local Union Elections (page 26)

(A) An active member in the Local Union, who has been an active member in the Local Union, or who had been a member of another organization merged with the Local Union, for a continuous aggregate of at least 12 months immediately preceding the month in which nominations are held, or an active member in the Local Union who has been an active member in the International Union continuously for at least 24 months immediately preceding the month in which nominations are held, shall be eligible to hold any Local Union office, provided that said member maintains continuous active membership in the Local Union.

With today being Friday, August 5, 2016 and one (1) week since the implosion at Local 648, does anyone have any updates as to what is going on from within UFCW Local 648?

Has former Local 648 President Dan Larson and or the UFCW I.U., provided any written communication to the members at Local 648 explaining to them what is going on?

@ UFCW Local 5 President John Nunes,........... here's a perfect opportunity for you to make a huge political statement to multiple individuals within the UFCW!

If you haven't already done so, you need to hire Darryl Roberts and Julissa Hernandez immediately at UFCW Local 5!

Oh hell yeah,.....I do smell a rat over at Local 648 with respect to their most recent announcement!

Check it out.... (Here are excerpts from a recent Local 648 notice I recently received)

Quote:


Notice of Re-Run Election

For UFCW, Local 648 Offices of

President and Vice President 14

Friday, November 04, 2016

7:00 AM to 7:00 PM

Mailed 10-19-16


Once again it is important to note,......

That "first term" President Dan Larson, was DEFEATED by the following UFCW Local 648 Union Representative, Darryl Roberts.



and........

Then following Darryl Roberts recent victory as the newly elected President at UFCW Local 648, Local 648's President Dan Larson, "allegedly," turned around and fired Darryl Roberts as of July 30, 2016?

Here are the final results for the first election are as follows:

Quote:


The office of President:

Darryl Roberts - 308

Dan Larson - 275

**************************************

The Office of Vice President #14 were as follows:

Miguel A. Garcia - 228

Nonna Villasin - 223


Interestingly enough, following the Election, the Incumbent and "first term" President Dan Larson, filed a timely objection with Local 648's Election Committee, alleging twenty-one Election violations and requesting a new election.

The election committee met on September 25, 2016 to consider a decision on the Election objections and issued its decision on September 30, 2016, upholding Dan Larson's challenge, setting aside the results of Local 648's Election of officers and upholding his challenge.

Quote:


The investigation revealed Union and employer resources were used to support the candidacy of Darryl Robertson the "Members First Slate" in violation of Article 35(C) 17 of the UFCW International Constitution and Local 648 Bylaws.

Specifically allegations related to improper posting of campaign literature on employer bulletin boards and Union bulletin boards in 20 Locations and Roberts use of union sick leave paid from the Union General Fund during the entire campaign period from July 11, 2016 to July 29, 2016 have merit, as well as numerous other violations upheld by the Election Committee.

October 17 at 12:15am ·

35 years as a UFCW member. This is just about a lifetime for me.

When I think about the word Union, I think about justice, equality, job security, and career advancement.

Unfortunately, this has not been my experience for the past three months, I stood up for something I truly believe in and this is enhancing the quality of lives for UFCW Local 648 members.

Because I stood up, I loss my job and my medical benefits for my family and myself.

But I will continue to fight for what's right.

Please continue to keep me and my family in your thoughts.

Also please help support me in this Election Process #Membersfirst#

@ UFCW I.U. President Marc Perrone,.......

With respect to the most recent Notice of a Re-Run Election that was mailed out to UFCW Local 648 Members dated October 19, 2016,........

How about clarifying something for all of us?

Specifically, it is my understanding that Darryl Roberts was terminated from his employment with UFCW Local 648 following his election victory over "former President Dan Larson in Local 648's "first" election held on July 29, 2016.

As Local 648 gears up for their second Union Election scheduled for November 4, 2016, it is also my understanding that Darryl Roberts employment status with UFCW Local 648 remains unchanged.

Darryl Roberts is still terminated!

@ President Perrone,....

How is it that the UFCW I.U. is preceding with the second Election at Local 648 when Darryl Roberts is still terminated?

Assuming for a moment that Darryl Roberts once again defeats Dan Larson in election #2 at Local 648 on November 4, 2016.

What will be the I.U.'s position regarding the 2nd election results?

Will the I.U. then take the position that Darryl Roberts is / was ineligible and therefore not eligible to be President?

If so, then what will happen?

Additionally, it was absolutely chicken shit to poison the well with the most recent letter sent out / paid for by Local 648 members dues to attempt to bash / discredit Darryl Roberts with the following Bull Shit!

Quote:
