Certified UFT Election Results – Part I

July 11, 2016 am31 8:49 am

The American Arbitration Association delivered certified election results (2016). They differ only slightly from the preliminary results reported here, but now with much more certainty attached.

These results are by slate, MORE/New Action vs. Unity. AAA supplied slate totals. But a third guy* ran with some individual followers, not enough to be a slate. For that group, for each division I considered the votes each officer and each divisional exec board member received, and I reported the lowest figure – which is the greatest number possible that did not split the ballot.

I excluded 20 staff members (AAA reports them in the grand total, but, correctly, not in any division.)  I assume those were 20 UNity votes.

**Retiree votes are down-weighted according to the UFT Constitution. They are capped at 23,000 votes. This explains most of the (slight) discrepancy between totals and slate totals (Unity 39,176 to MORE/New Action 10,743 vs Unity 39,094 to MORE/New Action 10,658).

I will, in no particular rush, follow this up with analysis. Next up will be turnout – both by division and by district.
