UAW 4121

Dear UAW Member,

Please find below two corrections to the fall vacancy elections announcement:

Open Delegate Positions

The fall vacancy election also includes three slots for UAW 4121 UAW International 2022 Constitutional Convention Delegates. Delegates help draft and submit resolutions in winter 2022, which will then be brought to the Convention held in Detroit, Michigan on July 25-29, 2022. UAW 4121 currently has a total of five (5) delegate slots, of which three (3) are currently vacant and open for accepting nominations. Note that the election for UAW 4121 delegates who will actually attend the Convention will happen in April 2022, and all positions will be open at that time. Those elected during this vacancy election will primarily be responsible for researching and drafting potential resolutions.

Eligibility: To be eligible to run for a delegate position, you must have been a member of the UAW (the international union, of which our local branch is a part) for 12 months, and that membership must have been in our local, UAW 4121 for at least the last 3 months. In other words, if you were a member of another UAW Local for 9 months, and then UAW 4121 for 3 months, you would be eligible.

All eligible UAW Local 4121 members are automatically nominated to run for a Delegate position. Any member may also nominate other members to run.

Open Postdoc Steward Positions

The initial listing of Postdoc Steward positions included an open position in Music and an open position in French and Italian. In fact, neither of these departments has an opening for Postdoc Steward position.
