Leadership

The leadership of Local 562 is mandated by our International Constitution and Bylaws, as well as our own Local Constitution and Bylaws. The elected officers consist of a Business Manager / Secretary – Treasurer, President, Vice President, Recording Secretary, Executive Board, Finance Committee, Examining Board, and Inside Guards, and are responsible for the administration of the union. Just as important as the elected officers, the Business Representatives, and Organizers play a crucial role in the day-to-day operation of the union. Additionally, because of the size of our local, and the need for additional administrative assistance, the Business Manager has appointed members to aid the elected officials in the performance of their duties.
