4. New Business: • Please see MSH & MSOP meeting minutes at http://www.union404.com/index.cfm?action=cat&categoryID=a51b59c8-e87c-4c... • Matt Stenger motioned for the July General Membership Meeting to be moved to July 14th instead of the 21st due to the majority of the Executive Board will be at International Convention over the 21st. The meeting will still be at 3pm at Hobber’s. Motion 2nd by Luke Frederick. Motion passed. • There is a mid term vacancy for an Executive Board position and the Secretary position. Per the international constitution the E-Board votes on who will take these positions because it is mid term. The E-Board has decided to put a call out to the membership to get names of those interested. If you are interested please email Matt Stenger with which position you are interested in by July 1st. • A lot of members have been asking about lanyards. Purchasing lanyards was discussed and a motion was made about a year ago. It was estimated that we would spend $1740. Ryan made the motion to spend up to $2000 (so we don’t risk going over) on 800 lanyards. We would be handing some out at new employee orientation. Motion 2nd by Molly Kennedy. Motion passed.

5. Old Business:

• Molly Kennedy announced that she is recanting her withdrawal as the Vice President Steward Coordinator until July to be around while International Convention is taking place. • We need a vote carrier at International Convention. Ryan Cates stated that he will do it. Also, Connie Anderson stated that due to flight return times those going may need to leave earlier on the closing day. It was decided that since closing day ends between 10am and 12pm those going could not attend that day.

6. Items from the membership:

• It was brought up that the union has not been doing anything in regards to good & welfare when it comes to those who have been permanently injured like Jeffrey Spann. We need to do a better job of reaching out. Tim Headlee stated that those closest to the individual could reach out. We could do a pass the hat at the July’s meeting for Jeffrey. We need to reassess the process on good and welfare and how we should reach out.
