Call for Nominations For President and Secretary/Treasurer

Nominations are now open for the President and Secretary/Treasurer.  Those elected will have a three-year term of office beginning July 1, 2020 and ending June 30, 2023. 

Criteria for office: To be nominated for the position of President and Secretary/Treasurer, you must be a current active member in good standing.  The bylaws can be found  here.

Procedure: To have your name placed on the ballot you must obtain the signatures of at least 10 current active full dues-paying union members, using this form.  Active members are those members who have been dues-paying as of payroll run R24 (ended 11/9/2019). 

An Elections Committee member from your MAU will inform you that your nomination has been accepted and that your name has been placed on the ballot.  The results of the election will be made available after the second Monday in February.  Previous petitions have on occasion been shown to contain one or more signatures from ineligible members.  You are therefore strongly encouraged to obtain more than the minimum number of signatures and thus avoid possible invalidation of your petition.

Deadline: The completed nomination form with the required number of valid signatures (10) must be returned to a member of the Elections Committee NO LATER THAN 5:00 PM on Thursday January 9, 2020. This is a firm deadline, as the ballots must be prepared and then immediately distributed to the membership.  YOUR PETITION MUST BE TURNED IN BY THIS DEADLINE.
