Election Results

Fellow UAW 2865 members,

The election committee and a team of volunteers has wrapped-up counting the remaining ballots . For a complete set of results, and their full report, visit the UAW 2865 website: www.uaw2865.org .

According to these results, USEJ won victories at the San Diego , Los Angeles , Riverside, and Santa Barbara campuses and has secured half of the seats at the statewide bargaining team.  We also won positions at Davis and Merced.   Unfortunately, we lost the Executive Board offices.

This election has been challenging, to say the least.  From the ultra-negative campaign run by our opponents to the very serious issues involving the conduct of the election and the vote count that followed, this election has raised a number of questions about the future of our union. While the count has been completed, these questions remain unresolved by the elections committee and are subject to members’ appeal rights. More information about these issues and the process for resolving them is available in the Election Committee’s report.

On behalf of everyone involved in USEJ, we want to thank our supporters who have stood by us along the way, in our efforts to keep things positive and issue-focused.

For our part, we look forward to working with all members to continue building a strong, united, activist union at UC.
