This bulletin is to inform our members that Brother Perry Sidhu, who was elected as the Local Lodge
764 TOSC Shop Committee Chairman in December 2019, has tendered his resignation, effective
December 31, 2020.
Unfortunately, his resignation was necessitated by the IAMAW constitution. Article B, SEC. 3 of the
IAMAW constitution requires that all elected office holders within a Local Lodge must be members in
good standing of that Local Lodge. Brother Sidhu has accepted a recall to YYZ. As a result of his
recall to YYZ, his IAMAW membership transfers from LL764 to LL2323, rendering him ineligible to
hold elected office within LL764. In accordance with Local Lodge 764 Bylaws, Article II, Section 7,
because there is more than one year remaining in the current term of office (January 1, 2020 –
December 31, 2022) nominations and an election must be held to fill the vacant TOSC Chair position.
Due to the cancellation of the January 13, 2021 monthly General membership meeting and the
possibility of having to cancel the February 10, 2021 monthly General membership meeting, the
nomination process will be conducted via postal mail and email. Read Bulletin here…
