Jack Cooper Teamsters to Vote September 6-9

Jack Cooper Teamsters will vote in each local union, some time between September 6 and 9, at the local union hall or a location near the terminal. Members should contact their local for details of when and where the vote will be held.

Questions have been raised about the voting procedure. Local 89 President Fred Zuckerman has asked how members who are laid off due to summer plant shutdowns and are presently working at distant plant locations can vote? There are no absentee ballots, so apparently the answer is they can only vote if they drive or fly back to their home local. 

This raises a question of why electronic voting, which has been used in the national contracts of the past two years, was discarded in favor of voting in-person, instead of e-voting or a traditional mail ballot.
