(2.4) - The CWA Vice President or Stewards may be granted paid union leave for legitimate Union business upon the request by the Union President or his/her designee, as requested to the Chief of Employee and Labor Relations. Such leave shall not exceed one day and may be withheld if operational conditions do not permit.
