April 13, 2015: The rules for the 2015-2016 Teamster election for IBT General President and officers, and for delegates from each local are now available on line.
Richard Mark, who served as the independent Election Supervisor in the 2006 and 2011 IBT elections, will again supervise the 2015-2016 elections of delegates from all local unions to the IBT Convention, and the IBT Election of officers in 2016.

Mark will supervise a national staff to handle the election, communicate with members, and investigate all protests filed. The rules go into effect on May 1; there is a comment period and they may be modified in minor ways.

Unlike local union officer elections, the Rules, protests and appeals are not handled by incumbent union officials, but by the Election Supervisor.
