Time to vote!

It's almost time to cast your vote and elect your representative to the ULW Bargaining Committee. Here are a few reminders leading up to the election.

Who Should Vote?

You may vote only for the representative for your section on the committee. If the candidate for your section is unopposed, they are deemed the winner and you do not need to vote. If your group has only one candidate running, you can still help out by spreading the word to coworkers in groups with multiple candidates running.
