SPECIAL ELECTION: CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
Laney Campus Co-Chair
For the term of date of election through June 30, 2019
Peralta Federation of Teachers is announcing a special election and call for nominations for an open seat on the Executive Council. The seat open for nominations is one campus co-chair position representing Laney College. All PFT members in good-standing are eligible to be elected to serve on the Executive Council. Members may nominate themselves (self-nominations are encouraged) or other members of the union for positions on the Executive Council. Please make sure your nominee is a member in good standing of the union and willing to run.
Elected members of the Executive Council have the overall responsibility of decision-making for the PFT. Campus Chairs are the first contact for faculty on the campus, frequently serve on hiring and screening committees, and occasionally handle grievances. Campus Chairs are also encouraged to hold Chapter Meetings for their campuses or represented populations once a semester. Campus Chairs must be primarily working at the campus they represent.
Each Executive Council member is required to attend PFT Executive Council Meetings, which are generally on the first and third Thursday of each month from 3-5pm during the Academic Year (though extra or emergency meetings are sometimes called in the Summer).
Please be certain that your nominees wish to run for the position, have the time to do so, and verify their willingness to serve. Please only nominate the Campus Chair that would specifically be representing you. You must sign this nomination form. Unsigned nomination forms will be disregarded.
NOMINATIONS ARE DUE TO THE PFT OFFICE BY
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 4PM.
Nomination forms should be returned to the PFT office via US Mail at 500 East 8th St., Suite B, Oakland, CA 94606 or faxed, 510-763-1140. You may also use District mail, addressing the form to PFT, email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or deliver by hand to the PFT Office or to any PFT Executive Council Member.
