Steward Nominations & Elections: In accordance with our CWA Constitution and Local By-Laws Steward Election must be held in either September or October. C&M will be holding our Steward Elections in October. All of the current terms end this year (October 31st) and this election will be for the next three years (beginning November 1st). Below is the schedule for all of C&M. Please see your location date, time, and number of vacancies. Normally our nomination process would be in person but because most of our departments are working from home we will be having our nominations via zoom. To be clear if we do not have more candidates than the allotted number of positions, then any nominated member will win by acclimation and there will be no subsequent Steward Election. You will need someone to nominate you, and also someone to second the nomination. Technically you can second your own nomination but its best to have another member to second your nomination. Please let Esther or I know if you have an issue and can’t attend during your specified nomination time for your group.

Chief Steward Elections: Chief elections will follow in December date to be announced after the completion of Steward Elections. Only the newly elected Stewards will be eligible to participate in the Chief Steward voting process.

HQ would normally hold our Steward nominations in person at the above locations. Due to Covid-19 most of our department is currently in a WAH status, therefore we will be conducting the nomination and election process via call-in to Vice President Frank Oliva’s direct office number, 203-230-5705.

You will need someone to nominate you, and someone to second the nomination. Please leave your name, job title, work location and the last 4 digits of your social security number and the name of the person you are nominating. If more than one member calls in to nominate the same member, we will consider those subsequent nominations as a 2nd to the nomination. If no one calls in to second the nomination, the nominee can second their own nomination. We will only have a subsequent Steward Election if we receive an excessive number of nominees working at the same location.
 
The call-in nomination process will be for the entire day, 6:00 am to 6:00 pm of October 21, 2020. 

Beginning Thursday, October 22, 2020 at noon thru Friday, October 23, 2020, each nominee will be called by Frank to confirm their acceptance of the Steward position for the 2021-2023 term, which begins on November 1, 2020. 

Chief Steward Election: Chief Steward election will be held in December upon the completion of the Steward Elections. 


Plant 1 Steward Elections for AT&T / Frontier

Hello, Plant 1 members,

I wanted to share the most updated information on elections of Stewards and Chief Stewards.

In accordance with the CWA Constitution and Local CWA 1298 By-Laws, all Steward and Chief Steward terms end on October 31, 2020, resulting in the need for new elections. The new terms will be for the next 3 years starting on November 1, 2020. The elections will be held during the month of October, beginning with the schedule listed below for the various areas.

Once the Steward Election process is finished an election for Chief Steward will be held at a date to be determined in the month of December. The Chief Steward position is voted upon by the newly elected Stewards and is overseen by myself and BA Michael Ciscar as is the election process for the Steward positions.

Because of COVID guidelines and social distancing, these elections will be held via conference call on the specific dates listed below and a call-in number will be provided. Any Steward that currently is interested in remaining active should express that desire and have another member available to nominate that Steward. Anyone interested in becoming a steward will need to express that desire and have another member of their respective workgroup available to nominate them. In the event that more than one person is interested in a position, and the numbers do not justify adding an additional position, a runoff for the position will take place. Generally, the CWA National guidelines are a ratio of between 1:15 

All interested parties will need to call myself Plant 1 Vice President Chuck Borchert at 203-213-2027 on the date listed below for your respective areas. I will be available all day  7 AM through 4 PM on the designated dates to take those interested information and compile a list for the final election process that evening via conference call. Please be able to provide your name, title, and work location. Any questions please reach out to myself or BA Mike Ciscar.

Any members interested in running for local steward in their area, please text Plant 2 Vice President, Dan Coffin (203) 257-0279 with your request to run. You will be added to the list in your area. The day before the election, you will be sent the zoom link and time to log-in to run for the position. Please make sure that a member of your work group is also available at that time to nominate you on Zoom so you can be voted in.

If there are more members interested in running for steward, a formal election will be held to elect the proper number of stewards in each area. The National Union recommends a member to steward ratio of 15:1. The Departmental Vice President will determine how many stewards are required in each location based on the members need. The ratio may be between 10:1 and 15:1 depending on the number of members in each work group in each area. Please let Dan Coffin know If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Local Steward Election process.

The Chief Steward Elections will be held on Zoom within two weeks of the steward elections conclusion.
