Legal Report from Attorney Michael Boldt, Ice Miller LLP - "Out-of-Area" Issues

FCAI has undertaken an extensive review of issues that have come to our attention regarding the mobility of IUPAT members, staffing of in and out of area jobs and out-of-area contractors. This review of issues included consideration of communications by PDC #14, FCAC, IUPAT General President James Williams, and other sources.

We engaged our expert Labor Attorney, Michael Boldt, of Ice Miller LLP, who conducted a review of the IUPAT Constitution and the collective bargaining agreements between the FCAC and PDC #14, and between FCAI and PDC #30, among other sources. Above is the report (edited).
