The contract must be ratified by ALE’s dues-paying membership to take effect.

Election Notes

 

ALE’s first EB, which was elected by the membership in November 2021, is serving a one-year term. This was approved last year in order to ensure that the hundreds of new Council staff in this session have the opportunity to select their union leadership in 2022. EB members are welcome to run for re-election. The 9th member of the EB, the Stewards’ Representative, is elected directly by ALE’s Stewards.
