    How long does it normally take to count the ballots for officers and business representatives in a local? Local 100 here. They started counting the ballots on Wednesday but I have heard nothing about the results.

    No one answers the phone. I guess I'll have to run by on Monday to find out.

    It was an unusally close vote with a split E-board being elected after a recount. From memory here but I believe Sam B's group won three E-Board positions and two BA's. Should be announced on Monday.

    Thank you. The results are very interesting, especially the two votes separating Webster and Lewis for President.

    It is crazy how close it was. I expected Davis to win.

    As was my hope. It appears the third slate, which had no chance of winning, has affected the outcome.

    you gotta run like you're losing. Or you will.

    Right, and I know the third slate has the right to run but I've seen too many elections that guys get nominated with no plan whatsoever and get a few votes from their friends. In most cases with three slates, the incumbents usually survive as the challengers "split" the dissident vote. Kinda wish a run off would occur when that scenario plays out when the results are this close. But I guess you get what you get...

    Agreed. All it does it cost the local and the other people running more money when people run and don't have a chance. Although they do have the right to run they shouldn't just do it to cost money and keep the people that would be better in the job from being there.

    The third slate, Voice, was made up of almost all freight guys, which most likely helped Bucalo and United Slate. First Slate has accused United Slate of setting up the Voice slate to split up the freight vote.

    The problem with that is it is a risky move and it didn't help everyone on the slate if that's what they did. Run head to head and the winner win be selected by the members. I'm not in favor of the games.

    I agree. If the accusations are true, it mostly likely cost Reece, a freight guy, the job as a business agent. But it most likely help knock out Butch Lewis as President.

    I also expected a win for Davis. He is pretty popular here and was a strong supporter for the vote no movement, which was huge here in Local 100.

    So what do you think of the new Prez?

    I'm optimistic. I'll let his actions in the next few months to determine my opinion. I was not a fan of Lewis or Meyer.

    I hope it works out. I hear there are hundreds of grievances waiting to be heard.
