No member may be a candidate for more than one office. Anyone nominated to more than one office must advise the Recording Secretary as to which office they will be accepting candidacy by May 7, 2017.

The nominee’s proof of willingness to stand for election must also be sent to the Recording Secretary and be received by May 7, 2017. It is the responsibility of the nominee (if they so desire) to provide the Recording Secretary a resume of his or her (union only) activities by May 7, 2017. If received by this date, it will be posted on the Local’s web site for the information of the voting membership.

To further assist the process, you may submit nominations and acceptances together using the following nomination form.

The election will be conducted by secret electronic ballot and the vote count will take place on June 5, 2017.  Members will receive voting instructions by mail at their last known address. The votes will then be certified by the National Election Judge who is appointed by the President.

In the event a runoff election is required, the same shall be held with the vote count to take place on June 26, 2017. The same rules shall apply to the runoff election as were applicable to the regular election.

Any member who believes a protest of the election is warranted is urged to contact the election judge within a few days after the ballots are counted. Further protests of the election may be filed in writing with International Vice President Bill Daniels within 30 days following the election. The decision of the International Vice President shall conclude the processing of a protest within the IBEW.

If there are any questions, you can direct them to me (via email) at sec@ibew2228.ca, or, call the office at 1-800-267-4163.

In Solidarity,

John Mahoney
Recording Secretary
