Stipends and recognition

Local officers may receive a stipend as reimbursement for incidental expenses. This requires a vote of the membership. Locals are not allowed to offer dues reimbursement, only stipends. There is a Local Stipend Policy and Form linked in the resource section at the end of this manual. Stipends should not be given to any other position, such as stewards, negotiation representatives, or Regional Directors. These positions may receive recognitions in accordance with the policy linked below in the resources section.
