Local 085 Union Elections Coming Soon….

The election of new officers is coming soon!

Did you get energized by our contract negotiations? Do you want to help co-workers who are in need or have a work-related problems? Are you interested in getting more involved in the union or making it stronger? Would you like to help on our local website or with communications? Then please consider running for election to a union office or volunteering in some capacity.

We’ll be electing a new group of officers in March and there will clearly be opportunities for new people to get involved. Some current officers won’t be running again; others are looking at doing different jobs; and, if you think you can do the job well, you can certainly challenge a current officer.

The position that will be up for election are: President, Vice President, Chief Contat, Chief Steward, Secretray, Treasurer, Membership Organizer, Chief General Council Delegate, Newsletter Editor, Chief Bargaining Delegate, General Council Delegates & Alternatives, Bargaining Delegates & Alternates, Stewards, Strike Hardship Committee members.

All our elected positions have two-year terms. In addition, there are volunteer opportunities that don’t require running for election, such as being a work area contact (CAT) or serving on short-term union committees, such as the Elections Committee or Strike Preparation Committees.

As we found during our contract campaign, our strength comes from member participation and activism. Help make our union stronger by finding a way to get yourself more involved!
