How do I vote?

Sign in to your email. You should have an email with a link allowing you to vote. If you have already forwarded your email and cannot find it in the new inbox, it may have been sent to spam. You can always just sign into the union email to view the email. Following the link in the email directly to the voting survey. If you cannot find the email, contact a VP right away. You can also vote in person a the union office

Am I eligible to vote?

All faculty (FT and PT) are potentially eligible when the bargaining unit brings something to a vote. Which types of issues require a vote? Examples include elections for Executive Board positions or ratification of a tentative agreement resulting from bargaining (e.g., involving wages, benefits, and other contract languages, etc.). However, only active members shall be permitted to vote. Furthermore, PT and FT members have equal representation (one person = one vote), so every vote really does count. In order to become active and exercise your right to vote, you must fill out a membership form. If you have not received your CTA membership card for the current academic year, please let us know right away, because it is likely that you are not an active member. Keep in mind, that membership becomes active on the date you sign the form. This means that if you do not receive a ballot for a particular election, then contact us immediately so that you can apply for membership and be permitted to cast a vote.

 

tl;dr

 

If you are a member, you can vote. If you are not yet a member, contact a VP to see if it is too late to join for this election. You may need to vote in person this time if it is too close to the election date.
