2018 STEWARD NOMINATING PETITION AND ELECTION NOTICE
PEF/encon DIVISION #169 - ALL LOCATIONS
The nominations and elections shall be held under procedures set forth in the PEF/encon Constitution. The term of office is one year, beginning April 1, 2018 and ending March 31, 2019. To be nominated, a candidate must be a PEF member, obtain the proper number of signatures, and submit the petition to the Election Committee before the close of nominations. The required number of signatures must represent at least ten (10) percent of the PEF members in a given “constituency”. Constituencies within Division 169 have historically been work locations or groups of work locations. If you are presently not a PEF member, you may become one now by filling out the application at http://www.pef.org/pef_files/docs/forms/PEF_Membership_Application.pdf and including the application with the nominating petition. This would allow you to run for Steward, sign a nominating petition, and/or vote in the election.
Each constituency within DEC is entitled to have a steward. Where more than 50 PS&T members work in a constituency, additional stewards are allowed. The list of known constituencies is listed below. In parentheses are indicated the maximum number of stewards which will be allowed in each constituency. Please note that the Election Committee may combine or split constituencies at the close of nominations in order to maximize the number of stewards within Division 169. If you would like to run for steward but work in a constituency where there are no other PEF members to sign your petition or if your constituency is not listed, please contact the Elections Committee.
PEF/encon STEWARD CONSTITUENCIES
The nominating petition is on the back of this announcement.
The Elections Committee is composed of Kris Alberga, (518) 897-1291, firstname.lastname@example.org; Dylan Keenan, (518) 402-8508, email@example.com; and Kevin McGarry, (518) 402-8401, firstname.lastname@example.org
An election will not be held in any constituency where the number of nominated candidates is equal to or less than the number of allocated positions for that constituency. Ballots for required elections will be mailed by Monday, April 2, 2018 and will be returnable by Monday, April 23, 2018. In the event of a tie vote, winners will be selected by the toss of a coin. All unsuccessful candidates will automatically be placed on a steward alternate list.
Any complaints concerning the fairness of these elections, which are not resolved to your satisfaction by the Elections Committee, should be brought to the attention of your PEF Regional Coordinator. (Call 1-800-342-4306 or www.nyspef.org )
