Out of concern for our members and staff, we would like to limit potential exposure to possible COVID-19 at the Union Hall. Local 44 will remain open, however the doors will be locked to limit direct contact in order to focus on safety for everyone during this pandemic. Accordingly, we ask that you call us from outside the office and we will assist you with signing books, paying dues, or anything else you may need. As this is an ongoing situation, we will keep this procedure in place until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation and for doing your part in helping to keep everyone safe.

RE: Nominations for Local Union Officers (REVISION)
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
This is a revision to the nomination notice dated March 2, 2020. To maintain the health of our membership during this COVID-19 outbreak and maintain our obligation to our IBEW Constitution and federal law, please review this letter regarding our upcoming nomination meetings in April.
All face to face Unit meetings in the month of April are cancelled. If you would like to have a unit meeting by conference call, please contact the Hall directly and let them know. We will use the same time as your regularly scheduled meeting, Woody or Bill will take part. If you do wish to establish one, please contact the hall directly and let them know.
Special dispensation has been granted for nominations. To nominate a member for a certain office in this Local Union, you may do so in writing. You may mail Your original written nomination and/or the original written acceptance of the nomination to:
IBEW Local 44
PO Box 3467
Butte MT, MT 59702
You may also fax your original written nomination and/or the original written acceptance of the nomination to 406-723-3270 or feel free to scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your original written nomination and/or the original written acceptance of the nomination must be specific in nature. If you are nominating a member for the office of President, you would write; “I nominate (member) for the office of President of IBEW Local 44”. Then you would print and sign your name. The written acceptance of such nomination should be specific as well: I, (print your name) accept the nomination of President for IBEW Local 44. You would sign below. This must be done for all offices. Only original (non-digitally) signed nominations and original (non-digitally) signed acceptance letters are allowed.
Normally Local Unit Officers would be nominated during this time and in the same manner, however these will be done when the regular unit meetings resume. This will be for your Unit Chairman, Vice-Chair and Recorder. These offices are voted on in your May meeting. If unopposed, these offices may be recognized to be elected by acclamation. If opposed, the Unit must hold a secret ballot vote at the May meeting.
Nominations and/or acceptance letters must be received in the Hall before 11:00 am on April 25, 2020, or it must be done during this general meeting. This general meeting is open to all members wishing to attend via conference call. Please utilize this call information (425) 436-6337 and access code is 267264#. On April 27, 2020, the Election Judge and the Local 44 Office will certify and record the nominations at the Union office in Butte.
I am asking all members to take advantage of this process to protect your personal health and the health of those closest to you. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please call me directly or feel free to email me at email@example.com.
