    What does a local Union trustee do and how do you get the position? Is it a paid position?

    A local union trustee is an elected position on the seven member executive board. Normally there are three Trustees with their primary duties to review and sign the monthly financial statements (books) of the union and report back to the membership. The Principal Officer can assign additional duties to the Trustees in accordance with the local union bylaws. Trustees, in most cases, get a monthly stipend.

    So its a part time gig. You still will have your "day job" at UPS.

    Often yes, but some Trustees are also Business Representatives so they would be full time with the local union.
