IBT Election Plan Summary
Richard Mark has written the Pennsylvania Federation in connection with the upcoming International Brotherhood of Teamsters election, and the Penn Fed’s Local Plan. The Teamsters consider our Systems, Divisions, and Federations as locals. Mr. Marks writes:
The Office of the Election Supervisor (OES) has approved the Local Union Election Plan for:
BMWED System Federation PENN
This letter provides you with the approved Plan and a Local Union Plan Summary that contains all the relevant information on the nomination and election of delegate(s) and alternate delegate(s) in your Local. The Plan and Summary were prepared from the information your local submitted to OES, and state the procedures the Local committed to follow to conduct the election. Please check the Plan Summary to ensure that all the information is accurate and that the Local is prepared to implement it as stated.
The Rules require the Local to post the Plan Summary on all Local Union bulletin boards as soon as possible, but in no event later than seven (7) days from the date that you receive this letter. See Article II, Section 4(h). The Plan Summary must be posted on Office of the Election Supervisor letterhead just as it is being transmitted to you. The posting must be maintained throughout the entire nomination and election period.
That subsection of the Rules also requires that within three (3) days of the posting, you must provide a declaration to the Election Supervisor attesting to the fact that the Plan Summary was posted as required and identifying every bulletin board site, by employer and location, where the Plan Summary was posted and the individual(s) responsible for posting and maintaining the Plan Summary at each site. ES Form 3, available on the Election Supervisor’s website, www.ibtvote.org, under “Official Forms” may be used for the declaration.
Please do not hesitate to call me, or your Regional Director, if you have any questions or need assistance.
