NJC Reconvening February 25, 2024
Updated On: Feb 16, 2024


We are looking forward to seeing you at the continuation of the National Joint Council Meeting scheduled for February 25, 2024, from 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. (ET), 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. (CT), 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. (MT), and 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (PT). In preparation for the NJC, we are writing to share important information on electing delegates, registering members, and designating voting delegates. To help ensure a smooth meeting, please look at the attached Virtual NJC Guidelines and a Robert Rules of Order explanation sheet.


NJC Delegates

Each local unit that is paying dues at the UAW dues rate of 1.44% is entitled to at least two (2) representatives based on the amount of dues it pays. The number of representatives your unit is entitled to have is included in the attached spreadsheet.

Although pre-contract units and units that are not in good standing cannot vote, all NOLSW members are welcome to join and participate in the non-voting portions of the NJC.


Selection of Unit Delegates to the NJC:

While Units are encouraged to keep their current delegates and delegate voting allocation, Units can change their delegates or the delegate voting distribution. If you choose to change your delegates or delegate voting distribution, please note that the delegates need to be selected through the democratic process - soliciting nominations from the full unit membership and holding an election if there are more accepted nominations than seats available, with the Chairperson of each local unit is, ex officio, one of the local unit delegates. 

All NOLSW members are welcome to join and participate in non-voting portions of the NJC.

Registering for the NJC

All NOLSW members are welcome to join and participate in non-voting portions of the NJC. Please share the following registration invitation with all of your members:

Registration will close at 5:00 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, February 22nd. Please make sure to register on time, as no requests to register will be accommodated after Thursday, February 22nd. Confirmation of your registration is a manual process that needs to be done by staff, so please allow until Friday, February 24th, at noon Eastern time before trying to follow up on your timely registration. If you do not receive a registration link by Friday, February 24th at noon Eastern time, please get in touch with your Regional Organizer. 

You are invited to a NOLSW National Joint Council Zoom meeting.
When: Feb 25, 2024, 04:00 p.m. Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Register in advance for this meeting:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Zoom meeting. This is a manual process, so please be patient and do not contact the national office or your organizer before Friday, February 24th at Noon Eastern to confirm your registration.


Designating Unit Delegates and Voting Strength

While all members are welcome to join and participate in non-voting portions of the NJC, only designated voting representatives who have been elected by their unit to represent them will be able to participate in voting. The unit’s votes are weighted in proportion to the number of delegates to which the unit is entitled. A single delegate may cast the unit’s entire vote or may be split among the delegates. If the unit believes that its vote will be split for any issue, that unit must designate at least two delegates to serve as voting delegates.


Because unit votes are weighted based on the unit’s dues and may be split by the unit delegates, we will need to know who the designated voting delegates are for your unit and how the unit is distributing the votes. If you anticipate that your votes will be split, you need to designate a minimum of two voting delegates. 

Before you register for the NJC, please go ahead and elect your delegates and add them to your registration form. Unit Chairs, please let all your elected delegates know of the distribution of votes to be added on the registration form or complete the registration form for all your delegates, including the distribution of their votes. Please note: If you are not in attendance and have not identified a designee or completed the delegate vote designation in the registration process, your unit will not be able to vote. We want all units to be able to fully participate so please make sure you complete the delegate portion of the registration form. 

Bylaw Changes and Resolutions

Please find attached the proposed NOLSW Bylaw Changes that were distributed previously, as well as the Resolution for NOLSW Sectoral Bargaining, which is being submitted by NOLSW members for consideration. Please share and discuss with your members in advance of the NJC to help formulate your unit’s position. 


In Solidarity,
