Dear IBEW 435 Member,
Because of the current pandemic, the Unit Meetings for the month of April have been cancelled. As you may know per the letter sent to your home, April was scheduled for nominations to take place for the 2020 Local 435 election.
On Friday March 20th Locals received a letter from IBEW International President Stephenson and International Vice President Reid with information pertaining to COVID 19 and handling of Local Union Elections. In the letter it was stated that the Local Union Executive Board could motion to postpone the election. On Monday March 30th a specially called meeting was held via teleconference to discuss what should be done.
In regards to the election the following motion was put forth, ``A Motion was made to postpone the Local Union 435 election due to the current COVID -19 pandemic until such a time as it is safe to make nominations and have said election``
The motion was carried.
IBEW Local 435
