Over the last year, your Union has been working to improve representation for rank and file members at our Delegate Assembly, the democratic decision-making body for AFT 2121.
Our hard-working delegates (Precinct Reps) have brought your voice to our monthly meetings where we discuss everything from bargaining strategy to job actions to political endorsements to the end-of-semester party. They have also collected new membership forms, knocked on doors, gathered signatures, and had many conversations with faculty about building power through collective action. As part of our effort to improve our precinct rep organization, we have added several precincts, and shifted some faculty to different precincts. As a result, your precinct number may have changed. As you consider nominating someone for our upcoming leadership elections, please consult the list of faculty by last name to check your current precinct number. Then check the list of faculty by precinct number. Here you can see a list of faculty who are members of the union in each precinct and thus eligible to serve as officers or reps. If your name does not appear on this list, you may not be an official member of our union. Please fill out the membership form and submit it before March, 22, 2016 in order to be eligible to run and/or vote in the leadership election.
We encourage you to think about the person you turn to in your department or area. That person might be a great rep. Or maybe you would like to serve. Either way, fill out this precinct rep nomination form and return it to our union office before Thursday, March 17, 2016 to be included in the official ballot.
Nominations for Officer and Executive Board
Four Officer positions: President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary, as well as six additional Executive Board at large representatives will also be chosen in this election. In order to nominate someone for one of these positions, five signatures of faculty union members are required in support of the nomination. Please fill out the Officer/Executive Board nomination form and submit it to our union office by 3/17 for qualification to the ballot.
