Upcoming 4121 Elections
Our Local, UAW 4121, will hold a university-wide election to fill vacant leadership positions this quarter. Nominations for vacant Steward and Joint Council positions in UAW 4121 opened on Monday, October 30th and will close November 9th. If you are interested in a leadership position, take a look at the current list of vacant positions and access the nomination form here.
Stewards are the main points of contact for members in a given department, and the steward network forms the backbone of our union’s cross-departmental structure and community. For information about what these roles entail, check out the election announcement email you received Monday.
All members in good standing are automatically nominated for open positions in their department. To run for the position, you simply have to accept your automatic nomination. For information about what these roles entail, check out the UAW 4121 Steward’s Toolkit. If you have questions, email email@example.com
