From your CWA 9421 Election Committee – Candidate Nomination addendum


Due to the ever changing rules and regulations regarding Covid-19 and the government’s response to the ongoing pandemic, we the Elections Committee with the blessing of the U.S. Department of Labor, will be implementing some new procedures to help ensure that as many members as possible will be able to engage in the nomination and acceptance process that it is written into the CWA constitution, local by-laws, and election and campaign rules. In addition to the in person nomination process that will be conducted on Tuesday, September 15th at the membership meeting, we will also be allowing nominations to be done via e-mail at ElectionCom@cwa9421.org during the hours of 6pm and 8pm of that same evening. Your nomination must be received during that two hour window to be deemed valid for consideration. You will receive a reply from a member of the election committee by 9pm that evening with a confirmation of your nomination. A similar process will be used for written acceptance of nominations due by 5pm that Friday, September 18th, 2020. You can either drop off a signed copy of the acceptance at the union hall election committee office, or e-mail a signed copy to ElectionCom@cwa9421.org no later than 5pm, Friday, September 18th. Anything time stamped or received after the times and dates noted on this declaration or future announcements will be deemed null and void. If you have any questions, please contact the Election committee by e-mail at ElectionCom@cwa9421.org. You can also reach our voicemail for basic information at 916-974-6900. We appreciate your participation in the election process and want to be transparent and helpful as possible, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any issues.
In unity, your CWA 9421 Election Committee
