In order to better align the Officer, Executive Board and Convention Delegate Elections with the Chairperson and Steward Elections the Local 591 Executive Board recommended adjustments in the upcoming September 2019 Chairperson and October 2019 Steward elections by making the terms of both the chairperson and stewards end on May 14, 2022. In future elections, the chairman and stewards would take office on May 15, and go back to a three-year term. The TWU IAC granted Local 591 a one-time change to the upcoming election term to less than the three years stated in the bylaws.
Notice: The term for this election will commence October 1st 2019 and end May 14, 2022. This change has been approved by the TWU IAC to more closely align the TWU Local 591 Officer, Executive Board and Election Committee Elections with the Steward and Chairperson Elections in 2022.
