    This ‘case’ is finally in the spring 2018 issue of ’ our’ IBT magazine..Just not the I DO’s final decision that was rendered at the end of December 2017,(due to press lag times.).
    This lack of general knowledge is CRUCIAL to making INFORMED DECISIONS. [elections-]
    Why I quickly became a member of TDU..,not being soley reliant on the carefully managed flow of what should be general KNOWLEDGE.
    Having the filter of a organization that is ‘Corrupt top down’., (to quote the IRO’s previous assertions) can have tremendous effects on the performance of OUR bargaining units.
    Color me impatient..but this was primarily over tickets to a after Super bowl (2013) elitists party the perp , was too corrupt to purchase with a income of $341,000 !!
    A extremely important election has come & gone with a preseved status quo ( incorrigible).
    Has any REAL PROGRESS been made in reforming the IBT?
