Candidates for International Union office will be officially nominated at the Teamster Convention next year. Now you can find out how many Convention Delegates will be elected in your Local Union.

Every Local Union will hold an election for delegates to the Teamster Convention where International Union candidates will be officially nominated.

The Election Supervisor has just announced how many delegates each local union will elect. You can now find out how many delegates your local will elect.

The exact dates for Convention Delegate nominations and elections in each local will be available by September 30, the deadline for all locals to publish their Local Union plan; members will have 15 days to make comments on the proposed Plan.

Presently, only a few seasonal food-processing locals in the West have published their official Convention Delegate election plans.
