Vote Counts

An overwhelming show of support from League members enabled us to do a bang-up job of completing the Local 5 election. This was the first time in many years that we attempted a major election on a week day, but to our surprise, Leaguers new and seasoned rallied forth and worked diligently toward a successful completion. This gives us a new dimension from which to work.

Thank You All!!

Unfortunately, the Teamsters Union Local 996 is not yet behind us. We are being asked to re-count the November 1, 1997 election because of complaints by one of the slate of candidates. The recount will be held on Monday, February 2nd at the Teamsters office with 10 Leaguers who did not necessarily work on the original election.

Thank you for your forbearance.

March 2 begins the Pearl Harbor Credit Union election. We will be working on-site for 2 weeks at the main office at Pearl Harbor, the Sub Base branch, also within Pearl Harbor, the airport branch and at the Makaloa branch off Kapiolani Blvd. This is an all-day grueling stint, but they need us to assure an impartial, fair election.

Policy within Pearl Harbor requires passes for the automobiles and the occupants. These passes must be obtain by the driver of the auto, a week before the election which is 3/2 to 3/13.

We will require 2 persons per day to staff the polls. If you are interested and have the time to give, we suggest you find a partner with whom you can most easily transport yourselves. This is also a great opportunity to use "dead time" to discuss issues or "catch-up with each other."

Pearl Harbor Sub Base Mon. & Tues 3/2 & 3 7:30 - 4:15

Pearl Harbor Airport Wed & Thur 3/4 & 5 8:30 - 4:00

Makaloa Fri 3/6 8:30 - 4:00, Sat 3/7 8:30 - 3:00

Pearl Harbor Main Office Mon - Fri 7:30 - 4:15

Sheraton Sat 3/14 4:30 - 8:30

The Saturday 3/14 effort will require 10 persons. Dinner will be provided by the Union. Please call the office and volunteer now. It is never too early.
