Local 249 elections moving to the plant
To make it easier for Local 249 members to be able vote, the union is moving the polling locations for the upcoming election of union officers, bargaining committee and committee people from the union hall to the main building, truck body, stamping and parts depot.
Nominations for local union offices will be held in March at the union meeting. Any member is eligible as a nominee and candidate for an Executive Office of Amalgamated Local Union 249 who has been a member in continuous good standing in Amalgamated Local Union 249 for one year immediately prior to the nomination. Any member in good standing may nominate any eligible member for office.
Acceptance of the nominations will occur after the union meeting in March and the week following with the polls closing at 4:00 on Friday afternoon.
The election for the offices will be held in the building that you work, except Truck Paint employees will go to the Truck Body Cafeteria.
You must vote at the location where you work.
Election voting times will be as follows:
Parts Depot will vote on May 3, 1:30pm to 7:30pm. DROTS and voting will be moved to the union hall Thursday, May 4 and Saturday, May 6.
Main building will vote on Thursday, May 4 and Saturday, May 6, starting at 5:00am for 24 hours each day. Voting will take place in the executive garage.
