On May 3 2024 there will be a Department of Labor supervised re-run election. Why is there a DOL rerun election? In short, the incumbent Officers are incompetent. Their inability to faithfully fulfill their obligations as Union Officers and run a fair democratic election process is ultimately why the DOL is now involved.
There is no substitute for strong, democratic unions to defend workers’ standard of living, their safety on the job, their working conditions, and their dignity as employees. Internal union democracy must stand up to corruption and oust self-serving officials.
