UFT elections – ballot problem (resolved)

March 18, 2007 pm31 7:11 pm

There was a printing problem with the envelopes, causing some of them to be returned to sender (one guy in my school already got his back, twice!)

The American Arbitration Association is sending out new envelopes (at their expense, not the union’s).

  1. If you haven’t mailed your ballot yet, use the new envelope.
  2. If your ballot returned, use the new envelope.
  3. If you have mailed your ballot and it has NOT been returned to you, no further action is necessary.

The new envelopes will arrive with a letter from the Election Committee. (You can read the text of the letter beneath the fold —>)

 IMPORTANT!

After the United Federation of Teachers
Election Committee learned that some mailed
ballots were being returned to the sender
rather than mailed to the American
Arbitration Association, the Election
Committee immediately brought the matter to
the attention of the AAA. Upon investigation
it was discovered that there was a printing
error made on the mailing envelope which
caused the problem. To correct this error
the AAA’s printer has arranged for a
reprinting of the mailing envelope at no
expense to the union. A correct mailing
envelope for the return of the United
Federation of Teachers 2007 election ballot
is enclosed.
If you have not returned your ballot yet,
please use this envelope for the return of the
ballot instead of the envelope that was
included with the original ballot mailing.
If you have mailed your ballot and it has been
returned to you, please use this envelope to
send your ballot to the American Arbitration
Association. Simply remove your ballot from
the returned envelope and place it into this
correct envelope.
If you have mailed your ballot and it has NOT
been returned to you, no further action is
necessary.
If you have any questions, please call the AAA
at 1-800-529-5218.
