Staff meetings are to be held on September 5th and 6th in most worksites. Please take that time to elect P.E.A. Delegates at your worksite for the 2017-18 school year.
At each staff meeting, the Union must be provided with five minutes for P.E.A. business. One of the most important items of business of the Union at this point is the election of P.E.A. Delegates for the 2017-18 school year. With the many varied issues that remain from last year, it is imperative that each building has as many Delegates as is permitted by the Association’s By-Laws.
If you did not yet vote for Delegates, PLEASE remind your Delegates to hold a special membership meeting for the purpose of nominating and electing your Delegates. Make sure your election is held!
Remember that your work site can have one Delegate for every fifteen P.E.A. members in the building. Non-members may not be Delegates. If you are uncertain as to your work site’s Delegate entitlement, elect the same number of Delegates as you had last year.
EVERY P.E.A. member has the right to stand for election as a Delegate. PLEASE give every member the opportunity to nominate him/herself or be nominated by his/her colleagues.
Elections must be held when the number of P.E.A. members who are candidates exceeds the allotted number of Delegates. Please remember to report the results of all elections to the PEA (firstname.lastname@example.org) before September 7, 2017.
If you have questions, please call the P.E.A. office for assistance. Thanks!
