Hide Profile

The International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America (U.A.W.) established the Public Review Board at its 16th Constitutional Convention in April 1957 to provide close public scrutiny of the U.A.W. and to ensure the best possible conduct of its affairs. The Public Review Board, composed of seven community leaders, has been granted independent authority and responsibility to investigate, hold hearings, and make final and binding decisions concerning complaints from individual members or local unions.

Under constitutional provisions adopted by the 16th and 17th U.A.W. Constitutional Conventions, the Public Review Board is guaranteed broad powers and responsibilities. It is given the "authority and duty to make final and binding decisions" in all cases placed before it by members or subordinate bodies of the U.A.W. Essentially, these cases involve individual members who feel they have been treated unfairly by their local unions and who have failed to obtain satisfaction upon appealing to the U.A.W. Executive Board. Also included are cases involving local unions which feel they have been treated unfairly by the U.A.W. Executive Board. In addition, the Public Review Board has the obligation to deal with "alleged violations of any AFL-CIO ethical practices codes, or any ethical practices codes adopted by the International Union."
