Appeal of Robert F. Schaefer, Card Number D336549

The International Executive Council has conducted a thorough review of the facts pertaining to an appeal of Robert F. Schaefer, card number D336549, and it is the decision of the IEC that Brother Schaefer shall be required to fill out a PBF pension application dated February 1, 2010, and submit to the International Secretary-Treasurer. For all return to trade months worked after February 1, 2010, Brother Schaefer shall be required to join the IBEW with a new card number and pay all required dues for months worked. His pension benefit will begin upon his future full retirement from the electrical industry.

In addition, the business manager of Local Union 1250 will be required to educate himself, Local Union 1250's current and future "A" membership, all the officers of Local Union 1250, staff and all professionals who deal with local union pension plans on the requirement of Article XI of the IBEW Constitution regarding PBF pension and the effect of non-payment of dues will have on any future members who retire under a local plan. Motion was made, seconded and carried.

This meeting was adjourned, on Monday, September 12, 2016, at 9:30 a.m.
