On Saturday, 1/16, IAM local lodges around the country nominated eligible IAM members for IAM Executive Council positions. My campaign has received reports that we were able to secure the requisite amount of nominations from IAM local lodges around the country for the position of General Secretary Treasurer. In fact, we believe that we received many more local endorsements than the required 25 because I was the only nominee for the GST position in many local lodges. We have also received reports that I have been endorsed by some of the IAM largest local lodges. That means we will be on the ballot in April!
Please refer to the IAM Constitution for a complete explanation on the electoral process for an IAM Executive Council position.
This is very exciting news and I thank all IAM members who participated in the process of ensuring that our GREAT union's democracy continues to thrive. I look forward to connecting with IAM members over the next three months, to gain your trust with the end goal to ensure that the IAM is financially sound into the future, is accountable to IAM members and greatly improves communication between all levels of our union.
