Officer Election Update

            On December 3, 2013, the Local 1700 Election Committee oversaw the tally of ballots in compliance with the ATU International Constitution, the Local 1700 Bylaws and the rules set forth in the Notice of Nominations and Election of Officers.

            On December 4, the Chair of the Local 1700 Election Committee was informed of a Post Office error that resulted in some ballots not being given to the Election Committee.  After investigating, the Committee determined that the unintentional error on the part of the Post Office can only be corrected by counting the ballots.  The Committee Chair’s recommendation to count the ballots was adopted by the Local 1700 Executive Board.

            The same procedure used in the initial tally will be used to count the uncounted ballots.  The tally will be completed on January 7.
