    I'm guessing that it will be sometime tomorrow before the results are announced. 40,000 ballots are a lot to count and they have to also verify the counts.

    I'd be looking for a press release sometime tomorrow morning.

    January 6, 2009: The International Union has started counting ballots in the vote for concessions at YRCW, and approximately 29,000 ballots were returned.

    As of early afternoon, the vote counters are sorting the ballots. Then the actual vote count will begin.

    Rank-and-file Teamsters are present to observe the vote count. We will update our website with results as they become available.

    How could the results possibly be announced today or tomorrow when any mail picked up at the post office still has to makes its way to D.C. to be counted? I'm assuming of course they are all mailed to the International in D.C. to be counted. Why aren't all members just required to bring their ballots to their local hall to be counted and the yea and nea's posted on line? Then we'd all know today.

    Yankee,
    Any Local matters are voted on in house, or at the Local level. This is a NMFA issue and the ballots will be counted in Washington, D.C....just like the contract ballots always are. We'll all know something tomorrow.

    Teamster's post right after this confirmed what I was going to say, and that was that I was willing to bet that at most only 3/4 of the members would actually send in the ballots. At 29,000 as posted by Teamster, my guess was actually high by 1000 ballots.....oh well. So much for EVERYONE being involved.
