Nominations for Local Union 798 Office
We have recently been made aware that there was an issue with the email address(firstname.lastname@example.org) used to submit nominations for the upcoming 2016 Officer Election. The security software we recently installed on our email program was not allowing nomination emails to go through. We have now corrected this issue. If you attempted to submit a nomination via email, we ask that you please resubmit your nomination to email@example.com, or contact an Election Committee Member to verify if the nomination you submitted was received. You may also submit a nomination via USPS mail or facsimile to 918 627-9327.
We regret any inconvenience this may have caused, but want to ensure that everyone who wishes to run for office has every opportunity to do so. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact one of the Election Committee Members.
