1.19.21 Nominations for union officers open today!

Published by Megan on

Dear members,

Starting today, the nomination period for our next UAOSU election for officer and representative assembly positions is open. When we wrote our Constitution and Bylaws, we chose to have annual elections take place each spring; however, due to the timing on our first contract ratification, we had to hold our first election in Fall 2020. Now that our first election has been completed, we’re moving to our regularly scheduled election cycle where half of the officer positions are up for election, as well as any open Representative Assembly positions.

All members who joined on or before October 6th can be put forward as a candidate for an officer position.  All members are eligible for nomination for a representative assembly position for their college

A list of all the positions, duties, and nomination requirements are available on our Nomination Guide on our website. Additional resources available at uaosu.org/elections include a recording of the nominations presentation, templates for collecting nominating signatures, and a timeline for the election process.

All nomination petitions must be submitted to the election committee by 11:59 pm on February 18th, 2021.

If you have specific questions about the nomination process, or about the roles of union officers, please check out our election webpage, uaosu.org/elections, read our constitution and bylaws, or contact the UAOSU election committee directly at elections@uaosu.org.

In Solidarity,

Your UAOSU Elections Committee
