IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM AFGE Local 1164 ELECTION COMMITTTEE
NEED FOR New Election Ballot
Local 1164 is in the middle of the 2018 Officer election period. We have three officer positions that are contested along with the delegate positions.
Our Constitution provides for a fair and equitable opportunity for all candidates to be given the opportunity to distribute, by mail or otherwise, AT THE CANDIDATES EXPENSE, campaign material.
It has come to the election committees attention that not all candidates were provided a fair and equitable opportunity to distribute their campaign material. Therefore, the election committee chair has decided to RERUN the election and provide all candidates the opportunity to send out, at their own expense, campaign materials.
To that end: Candidates are hereby notified that they may request an electronic copy of the Membership mailing list no later than June 8th, to give each Candidate an opportunity to mail out any desired campaign material.
Please note: Candidates may not use government email or equipment, including photo copy machines and agency computers for distributing union election materials.
All Previous ballots received will be discarded and new ballots will be mailed June 15th and must be received no later than June 29th.
AFGE Local 1164 Election Committee Chair
