As a member-run union, direct democracy is a centerpiece of how our organization functions. Across our organization, most leadership positions are assigned according to elections where union members vote who they want to represent and empower them in their worksites. These include everything from our union's President to stewards, and there are many positions in between.
Many elections are handled at the shop-floor level, which means that, with our support, many positions, such as Committee placements and other very specific roles, can be conducted on your own. You can run the election process and build forms (like this one) to complete this process. But other, more complicated ones will need our Administrative and Communications departments to take the lead.
If you need a special election, you need to use this form to enter in the appropriate information so that our Administrative department can process your request. Please fill out the below form with all of the relevant information we would need to fully conduct this election and we can then take the next steps necessary to move your election along. Please provide as much information as possible so that we can process this request, and we will contact you if you need to follow a different process than is implied here.
