Vice President of Ontario Taxi Workers Union Muhammad Faheem Shahid has tendered his resignation with immediate effect, from his post and all other committees of OTWU. 



Ontario Taxi Workers Union (OTWU)


May 7, 2013 

Dear Sir, 

With due regret I inform you that I feel that the affairs of the Board of Ontario Taxi Workers Union have reached a stage where all hopes of any positive outcome have vanished. I personally feel that OTWU Board Members practically paralyzed me in my role as Vice President elect from doing anything beneficial for the general members i.e. drivers of OTWU. Select members of the Board of OTWU gained personal financial benefits regardless of means and costs, which renders the role of the Board for the remaining members dysfunctional. The only option left to me and the few remaining members of the Board who refuse to play in this unfair game is to resign.



These members of the Board of OTWU have compromised the Art. 6(3) of the Constitution of OTWU, which sets out in clear words the restrictions on the authority of the Board in certain matters which affect the vital interests and welfare of OTWU as a whole. These matters are being decided without approval of the general membership of OTWU and often even informing many members.


Art. 6(3)

Subject to the provisions of this Constitution, the Board of Executives shall have power to act on any Union matter that requires prompt and decisive action between regular general membership meetings. The Board however shall not transact any business or incur any expense that may be of vital interest to or affect the good and welfare of the Union as a whole without the approval of the members at a general or special membership meeting.


Decision-making is a tough job. There will always be times when the members of an organization have to make hard decisions to save the existence of that organization. Timely, balanced, calculated and prudent decisions play an important role in a successful organization. No organization can grow and no objective can be achieved without taking such decisions. The administrator of any organization should always be capable of taking independent decisions for the best interests of the organization. They must not allow themselves, directly or indirectly, to be influenced in their capacity to take independent decisions. If they do so, they are compromising and undermining the organization they represent and are doing it harm. They are working against the interests of the said unfortunate organization. As a member of the OTWU Board, I feel my own Board members have hindered me from doing anything which is in the general interest of OTWU. Rather I am being forced to make decisions at the behest of someone, who is not a member of the Board of OTWU, who is in fact not even a taxicab driver.



I am also appalled at the general hindrance that I encounter from the Board on matters of huge importance and urgency. One such recent incident is the huge increase of insurance for taxicab drivers. After negotiating a new deal with Alfa Insurance broker which meant the competitive insurance rates for drivers the Board was requested to approve a letter which would insure the whole fleet of drivers for a far more competitive rate. The letter remains unsigned and it has been over two months. We all claim that we are working for the membership and if the Board cannot or will not help us negotiate better working conditions for the membership and rather hinders all decisions which might make this possible then what is the purpose of it?


With a heavy heart I own up to my inability to make some of the Board members understand these failures of conduct and breach of legal Articles and avoid them happening again. Therefore I feel my role as Vice President of OTWU is ineffective and redundant and wish to tender my resignation, with immediate effect, from this post and all other committees of OTWU.



Yours very truly,


Muhammad Faheem Shahid.

There are usually two mileage categories which you will have to fill out when applying for women. Generally, they offer you what your car was worth, not what it will cost to buy a new car of similar value. This has resulted in the decrease of mortality rate from these technologies and medical care has lead to increases in morbidity and chronic illness that makes the need for home health care nursing a greater priority.
