Machinists union sets dates for nominations and elections
Nominations for a new president for Machinists Union District Lodge 751 will be on Tuesday, and elections will be on March 6.
The new president will serve out the remainder of former President Tom Wroblewski's term in office. The term runs until Feb. 1, 2017.
Citing health concerns, the 59-year-old Wroblewski, of Kent, announced on Jan. 14 that he would retire.
Notice of the nominations and elections is posted at www.IAM751.org.
Nominees must be seated delegates to the union's District Council.
The council is a 35-member policy-setting body whose members are full-time employees at Boeing and other companies represented by District 751.
Nominations can be made by individual District Council delegates or alternates, or a group of 50 members could submit a petition nominating a seated delegate of their choice.
"Every District 751 president has faced great challenges, and so will the next one," said Wroblewski. "However, the president the members choose also will have the honor of leading the greatest group of aerospace workers the world has ever seen."
