Take Back Our Union (TBOU) Elecetion Update- Post the Election Results

Post the Election Results!

It's been more than two weeks since the ballots were counted in the election for convention delegates and Local 100 still hasn't posted the results. But United Invincible has a leaflet out claiming victory. They're working hard to spin the outcome - without showing the numbers. This is just one more example of their disrespect for the members.

When the numbers are finally posted, you'll see that:
Take Back Our Union won in 40 of 67 head to head contests. United Invincible won mostly races where no one ran against them.

• Incumbent VPs Andreeva Pinder , Stephan Thomas, and Enzo Sinnona ,running on the United Invincible slate, were all defeated in the delegate election.

• Acting VP William Wyatt, also running on the United Invincible slate, was almost eliminated, winning his seat by only 2 votes.You'll also see that:

Take Back Our Union won a clear majority of votes in Stations ,Track, Line Equipment/Signals, Power, , Train Operators, Conductor/Tower Operators, MTA Bus, and Private Line Operations.• Most of the members in TA Surface voted for either Take Back Our Union or United for Change. United Invincible won a majority of the delegates,but a minority of the votes

• United for Change candidates soundly defeated United Invincible in TA Surface Maintenance.

• The only divisions United Invincible won were MaBSTOA, MaBSTOA Maintenance, Structure, School Bus and Paratransit, and Car Equipment.United Invincible won seats to the convention, but they've lost the confidence of the members.They won a majority of the delegates only because they did everything they could to deny members a choice, by disqualifying members in good standing from running.

If the Toussaint Team had respected the membership's right to a real election , Take Back Our Union would have 62 delegates to 51 for United Invincible.

It’s Time to TAKE BACK OUR UNION ! come JOIN THE MOVEMENT this Thursday JULY, 16TH from 4PM to 7 PM @ the North Star Fund located in Mid- town Manhattan 520 8th avenue 22nd floor (between 36 and 37 street) any train to 34 Street Penn Station
