Some of you may have experienced delays with receiving your ballots today. We’ve been in the process of getting things straightened out in consultation with McMaster and Election Runner in order to ensure a fair and equitable election.
Earlier today we sent out over 4000 ballots to all members containing the VP, International Officer, and Trustee positions along with over 3000 to just TAs for the Unit 1 Chief Steward position. Unfortunately, but for a logical reason, these messages were flagged as spam/phishing by McMaster’s IT setup and most were not sent through on time. McMaster recently made arrangements to approve the mass of ballots and Election Runner is now re-sending the ballots.
Because of this, we are extending the election time period to Tuesday April 13th at 5pm to ensure that all ballots are received and that folks have enough time to cast a ballot. Please keep an eye out for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org and check your spam folder. You’ll receive two ballots – one for your chief steward and another for the remaining contest positions. Thanks for your patience and understanding about this, and apologies for the inconvenience.
