Spring 2020 United Master Executive Council Elections
April 14, 2020
The election of Union officers is a vital part of the representation process. Elections must be conducted in a timely manner under the guidance of the Department of Labor, and this is especially true during the current COVID-19 crisis.
Elections for MEC Officers and MEC Committee positions were originally scheduled to take place during the Spring 2020 Regular Meeting of the United Master Executive Council in Rosemont, Il. However, given the governor’s “Shelter in Place” order and local ordinances restricting the ability to gather groups, all of which were implemented to minimize the devastating consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become necessary for the Union to make alternate arrangements for the MEC Elections.
The United Master Executive Council will be convened electronically and Elections for MEC Officers and MEC Committee positions will now be conducted using a secure, electronic process that will facilitate interviews of the candidates. Elections will occur on the same day as originally planned, April 30, 2020. Election information, including qualifications and responsibilities of each position, is available on the MEC Election Page of our website.
All active Members in good standing interested in serving in one of the positions listed on the MEC Elections page, should submit a resume and/or a signed “Willingness to Serve” statement.
In order to ensure the Membership is familiar with all of the candidates running for election, we ask that you submit your Willingness to Serve with as much notice as possible prior to the election date. Willingness to Serve statements and resumes should be sent to the United MEC Secretary/Treasurer by e-mail at email@example.com.
In the interest of protecting our privacy, Willingness to Serve Statements should not include personal information or employment history as they will be posted on the United MEC website for public viewing. Resume information, if desired, should be in a separate document and will be shared with the Members of the MEC for their consideration and review.
