Ship Delegates and Department Representatives

Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

Each summer we hold elections for Ship Delegates and Department Representatives. We ask that elections be held as soon as possible on each vessel to select your Ship’s Delegate and Department Representatives. Each crew will hold a brief union meeting to nominate and elect their delegates and representatives. It would be beneficial that all delegates be permanent crew members and have a willingness to help their fellow Union Sisters & Brothers.

The Union offices will need to know as soon as possible who has been elected on each vessel and each crew, so that we are better able to serve our membership.

Knowledge of our contract is a must, you will be the person called upon during all ship board inquiries and meetings when a problem arises to be a witness to all meetings held on behalf of your Union Sisters & Brothers.

If you have any questions or want to learn more about the responsibilities of the above positions, please contact the Regional Director Joshua Stephenson or Patrolman Pete Lapinski.
