Nominations for HPAE Local 5089 Officers and Representatives are closed and our election is now underway. Based on all the nominations received, the only contested position this year is for the Vice President of Rutgers and Rowan University. All other positions are uncontested and therefore will not appear on the ballot. Furthermore, members at University Hospital will not receive a ballot because there are no contested elections for those work-areas.
Write-in candidates are not permitted. Vacant positions may be filled by an appointment of the Local Executive Board.
The Local 5089 Nomination and Election Committee shall cast one ballot for all uncontested nominees, thereby ending the election for those positions with the single ballot cast.
The mailing of ballots for the contested position was conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and mailed on Friday, January 12, 2018. The deadline for receipt of ballots is January 31, 2018, at 5:00 pm, and the counting of ballots will take place on February 1, 2018 at 10:00 AM., at the offices of the AAA located at 120 Broadway, New York, NY 10271. Ballots shall be secured at the offices of the AAA under lock and key. The AAA will guarantee the security of the ballots at all times and certify the results. The AAA is hereby authorized to administer said election for Local 5094 in accordance with the AAA Election Rules.
Only members are eligible to vote, if you are an Agency Fee payer you will not receive a ballot.
Voters with missing or damaged ballots will be directed to request replacements by calling our Duplicate Hotline 1-800-529-5218 Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This number is to be utilized only for duplicate ballot requests. Voters are asked not to call prior January 19, 2018, to allow sufficient time for the delivery of all ballots. Members may also make requests by e-mailing requests to Sacha Ulerio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The responsibilities of the Association include mailing all packets, counting all ballots, providing the certification of results within 24 hours, and storing the ballots and business reply envelopes after the count for one year.
