USW International Executive Board nomination process

July 19, 2021 - Hello members,

The United Steelworkers is conducting an election for the positions of the International Executive Board. As part of the election process your Local Union will use remote electronic voting to nominate candidates for International President, International Secretary-Treasurer, International Vice President (Administration), International Vice President (Human Affairs), Canadian National Director, International Vice President at Large, International Vice President and Directors of USW Districts 3, 5 and 6.

The International Union Elections Manual provides that no candidate may be voted upon in a Local’s nomination process unless the name of that candidate has been submitted in writing by a member of the Local Union to the Local’s Secretary-Treasurer in advance. The submission must be signed, and indicate the office for which the candidate’s name is being submitted. Once a name is submitted, the name cannot be withdrawn for candidacy as the Local’s nominee except by the candidate.

If you wish to submit the name of a candidate for consideration for the identified positions, it must be received in hard copy, by postal mail or dropped off, at the address indicated below, and by the date/time listed below:

After the submissions have been received, the Local Union will use a remote electronic voting process to enable each member to vote to nominate the candidate(s) of their choice.
