Encourage members to vote in UFT election and post the election flier
The American Arbitration Association, which is administering the UFT election, mailed out confidential ballots to members’ homes on Thursday. Chapter leaders should post this Election 2016 flier on their UFT bulletin board. One of the most important rights of being a UFT member is the ability to choose your union’s leadership. This May, we will elect 12 officer positions including president as well as 90 Executive Board members, AFT regular and special convention delegates, NYSUT regular and special RA delegates, NEA regular and special convention delegates, and AFT and NYSUT Retiree Council convention delegates. All positions have three-year terms. Please tell your members to look out for an envelope that says “Urgent — Official U.F.T. Ballot Enclosed.” Remind your members that their ballot must reach the American Arbitration Association no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25. Ballots will be counted on Thursday, May 26. Do not sign your name on the ballot. Please encourage members to exercise their right to choose their union’s leadership by voting. Contact UFT Election Committee Chair Amy Arundell firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
