Pursuant to an election complaint received by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS), NALC entered into a voluntary agreement with OLMS to conduct, under OLMS’ supervision, a new officer election for the position of NALC director of retired members.
The ballot tally for this election took place immediately afterward at Peake-DeLancey Printing in Cheverly, MD, and it was completed on Oct. 7. The preliminary results of the count are:
- Corvallis, OR Branch 1274 member Ron Watson: 47,608
- Minneapolis Branch 9 member Ken Ring: 9,119
OLMS is reviewing the vote totals to ensure they are correct and accurate, and it will release a final tally report shortly. This report will include a breakdown of the vote totals by branch.
The term of office for this election is the remainder of the unexpired term, which will end in December 2018.
