The Independent Election Supervisor has issued the official Election Rules that will govern all aspects of the process, including the upcoming petition drive to accredit IBT candidates.

The Accreditation Petition allows slates and candidates who collect enough signatures to become officially accredited candidates.

Widespread petitioning is likely to be delayed by a month or two because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But the petition drive will still be a huge part of the campaign—and Teamsters who want new leadership and a new direction for our union are preparing now.

TDU members voted to endorse the O’Brien-Zuckerman Teamsters United Slate—and we will be working hard on the petition drive effort.

The first deadline for submitting petitions to the Election Supervisor is at the end of August; there is a second deadline in December.

Thousands of Teamster volunteers will be needed to collect over 100,000 signatures.
