Standing Decisions of the General Executive Board; 2011 Dec LU157 Meeting

1887 February 15—A Union not holding meetings at least once a month forfeits its charter and is not eligible to donations.
2006 UBC Constitution, p86,

LU157's last meeting occurred Monday, November 15. It is now 34 days since with no meeting having yet occurred in December. Contact all the LU157 E-Board members and the NYCDCC to remind them of this 1887 Standing Decision and to insist that a LU157 meeting be held ASAP, preferably this coming Tuesday, Dec 21, or Wednesday, Dec 22. Call, text, email, and/or fax them today and every day hereafter until we have a LU157 meeting. Having the meeting is not only the right thing to do but also mandated by the UBC Constitution. Let us not allow the LU157 E-Board or Spencer to ignore and violate this provision of the UBC Constitution again as had been done for five months during the LU157 2007 supervision/trusteeship.

spencer did it for a much longer period during the 157 supervision. my question is, does the fact that one of the first acts of a supervision is to suspend all meetings not indicate that the UBCJA does not see union meetings being useful to a local? what is the purpose of a local meeting in the eyes of the UBCJA? how would holding meetings be detrimental to the welfare of that local. what purpose do local meetings have?
