Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Update on the International Executive Board Elections:
Ballots for the “UAW International Officer Run-Off Election” will be mailed out to all UAW members beginning January 12, 2023. Ballots must be received by our International on or before February 28, 2023. The counting of votes will begin on March 1, 2023. If you believe that the Union Hall does not have your current mailing address, please see your Shop Steward or Committee person to have this information updated.

UAW Local 1069 members must show solidarity by casting their votes in this run-off election. With almost 1200 eligible voting members, you can make a difference in keeping UAW Local 1069 the strongest local in Region 9.

Given that International rules have changed, it is our duty as a membership that ALL 1200 members show strength using the “one person, one vote” format.

Should any candidate or observer claim that a member eligible to receive a ballot has been omitted from the list, such person shall be sent a ballot if such claim is made no later than February 15, 2023. Similarly, any member requesting a ballot via the Monitor or Election Vendor will be sent one if such request is made no later than February 15, 2023. Members may request a ballot starting on January 19, 2023, by completing the form on or by calling 855-433-8683.
Stay United and Stay UAW Local 1069 Strong
Reminder, our monthly membership meeting will be held Sunday, January 22, 2023, at 10:00 AM at the Hall. Please plan to attend.

In Solidarity,


Mike Tolassi
