A UNION CONTROLLED BY ITS MEMBERS

YOU run the NPMHU. Every level of the NPMHU operates democratically o­n the principle of majority rule. As a member of the Union, you have a right to be heard and the right to vote to express your concerns. All local and national officers are elected by the members by secret mail ballot. Any member can become a candidate for elected office simply by being nominated in accordance with the requirements of the NPMHU Constitution. All members also vote o­n ratification of the National Agreement, and elect delegates to the National Convention. The National Convention convenes every four years and is the highest governing body in the Union. Between Conventions, the National Executive Board directs the Union's policy and programs.
