A relatively obscure but important position within the railroad local union is the office of "Delegate". While the position's duties may vary somewhat from union to union, basically the duty of the delegate is to represent the local at the national (international) union level through participation in the Convention and/or other forums as may be designated by the union's constitution and bylaws.
RWU has created and now makes available a new flyer which takes on the question of who can best represent a local union at the national level. what positions on the issues the local union delegate might want to consider taking at the Convention; and the obstacles to watch out for while at the Convention.
We hope more rank-and-file union members will consider serving as their local union's delegate. It is our hope that The Local Union Delegate & You: How to Represent Your Local at the National Level. can assist, inspire and give you the confidence you need to run for the important position of Local Union Delegate.
