2022 MPU Special Election Nomination Form

Official Notice for Publication

A resignation has created a vacancy for the Office of MPU Vice President.

Therefore, in accordance with the Medical Professional Unit Constitution of ESC/IFPTE Local 20, nominations are sought to fill the unexpired portion of their two-year term.

Due to COVID-19 social distancing and hygiene guidelines, it is not advisable to encourage the person-to-person collection of signatures or the sharing of material that could increase the risk of contagion transfer from one member to another. To avoid this risk, the nomination procedure has been changed to allow for the electronic collection and submission of signatures on nomination forms. Therefore, we will follow the procedure outlined below:

  1. Candidates will download and fill out the nomination form. Nomination forms are available online or can be requested by emailing esc@nullifpte20.org.
  2. Candidates will scan and e-mail the form to the unit area members in good standing of their choice.
  3. Candidates can have their members in good standing add their signatures by printing out the form, signing it, then scanning or sending a photo of the signed form back to the candidate via e-mail
    – OR –
    a member may register their “signature” on the form by responding to the candidate’s email containing the nomination form stating,

“I, _____, hereby sign the nomination form sent to me by __________” in the email message.

When practical, it is preferable for members to use their employer-issued email address for ease of verification. A personal email address is permitted when that personal email address is on file with the union.

  1. When the candidate has obtained at least ten (10) valid signatures of unit area members in good standing, the candidate may file those nomination forms with the Union office by mail, hand-delivered, or e-mail esc@nullifpte20.org with the subject line “MPU Nomination Form for (name of office).”

The Union office will verify the membership status of the nomination signatures submitted by each candidate. If the minimum number of ten (10) signatures submitted by the deadline, Friday, May 20, 2022 by 5:00 pm are valid, the nomination will be accepted.

If an election is called for, candidates will be notified on Tuesday, May 24th, 2022. Candidates will have until noon on May 27, 2022, to submit their candidate bios for inclusion in the ballots. Ballots will be sent to all members in good standing of the Unit no later than June 10, 2022.

Completed ballots must be received at the union office, by US mail, on or before 5:00 p.m. June 24 , 2022.
