CONVENTION DELEGATES

This Fall Vacancy Election also includes three slots for Constitutional Convention Delegates. Delegates help draft and submit resolutions in winter 2022, which will then be brought to the Convention held in Detroit, Michigan in July 2022. Note that the election for UAW 4123 delegates who will actually attend the Convention will happen in May 2022, and all positions will be open at that time. Those elected during this vacancy election will primarily be responsible for researching and drafting potential resolutions.


Eligibility: To be eligible to run for a delegate position, you must have been a member of the UAW (the international union, of which our local is a part) for 12 months, and that membership must have been in our local, UAW 4123 for at least the last 3 months. In other words, if you were a member of another UAW Local for 9 months, and then UAW 4123 for 3 months, you would be eligible. All eligible UAW Local 4123 members are automatically nominated to run for a Delegate position.

NOMINATION PROCEDURES FOR ALL VACANT POSITIONS

Members may accept nomination for no more than one Executive Board or Head Steward position. Each member who wishes to accept nomination must indicate this intention in writing by e-mailing an acceptance of nomination for the specified position to: elections@uaw4213.org


Written acceptance must be received at elections@uaw4123.org no later than November 5, 2021 at 5:00 PM. The written statement of acceptance should state how the nominee wishes their name to appear on the ballot. Also, see the section on candidate statements below.
