Notice of Nominations and Elections

A letter was recently sent to you with notification of Nominations and Elections for your Local. After reviewing the letter there was the following typo:

“Election Ballots: The Election will be conducted by secret ballot through the American Arbitration Association. Ballots will be sent to every member on December 3, 2020 and must be received by the post office by 9:00am on Monday, December 18, 2020 to be counted.”

The following is the correction:
Election Ballots:
The Election will be conducted by secret ballot through the American Arbitration Association. Ballots will be sent to every member on December 3, 2020 and must be received by the post office by 9:00am on Friday, December 18, 2020 to be counted.”

I apologize for any inconvenience.
Thank you,
CWA Local 1181 Election Committee
