ILWU LONGSHORE DIVISION CAUCUS
THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING RESOLUTIONS IS FRIDAY, MARCH 24, 2017. APPROVED RESOLUTIONS WILL BE READ AT THE APRIL 2017 MEMBERSHIP MEETING.
Whereas means because or considering that. We use the word whereas to identify the basis of making our Resolution. This might be explaining a problem that we hope to solve, or an unsafe work condition that we hope to remedy.
MANY OF THE RANK AND FILE OF LOCAL 13 HAVE LITTLE OR NO EXPERIENCE WITH CAUCUS RESOLUTIONS
If there is more than one reason for making the Resolution, the argument for the Resolution proceeds through separate logical steps. We introduce new components with the phrase “and whereas.”
IDEAS FOR THE CONTRACT COME FROM THE RANK AND FILE WHICH CAN CONTRIBUTE TO A FINER CONTRACT AND BETTER LIFE ON THE WATERFRONT
Here is the actual Resolution. This is where we define the action we want to take. If this involves adding to or changing the language of the Agreement, be precise about which Section we are talking about.
THE DELEGATES SHALL PREPARE A SIMPLE EXAMPLE TO BE USED TO INSTRUCT THE RANK AND FILE AS TO THE FORM, CONTENT, AND PURPOSE OF THE RESOLUTION
