Dear PMWG Local 39521 Members,
Thank you to all who voted in the 2019 Guild Membership Referendum.
Both provisions of the referendum passed, with the following results:
- Local Membership voted to make the Local’s lead officer an appointed role, rather than elected. Now the Executive Officer will be appointed by the Local Executive Committee.
- Additionally, our Interpreters Guild of America members voted to consolidate with our brothers and sisters of the California Federation of Interpreters, TNG-CWA Local 39000. This decision brings our California interpreters together in solidarity under one roof. As a result, our Local will no longer have a Vice President of Language on the Executive Committee.
These changes are reflected in the updated copy of the PMWG Bylaws on the Local website. If you have questions about the referendum, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your attention to these important Local matters!
