I agree it should increase participation, but will you trust the outcome?
You mean less than the way it works now?
Sure. The Internet can be secure. Most people have learned to trust sites like amazon with their credit card info. I dont see why they cant make online voting happen
I don't think there'd be less reason to trust online voting/instant verification of vote receipt than sending a paper ballot in via snail mail and hoping that it both gets to its intended destination and is not mishandled somewhere in the process.
We voted on the changes to our pension fund by mail, phone or online. Did not increase the participation rates.
I don’t think you’ll see a significant increase, at least not the first time around. Those that don’t open the envelope still won’t open the envelope, so they won’t vote. And those that open the envelope will now have to take an extra step to vote? I don’t really see many doing that.
I have mixed emotions about it
The Teamsters have finally entered the 21st century.....in at least one aspect anyway.
It's funny.... that TDU is opposed to it.
IBT Intends to Use Electronic Voting on ABF and UPS Contracts
Here come the Russians.
In Soviet Russia, contracts vote for you online.
I think TDU or any other entity would be warranted to have serious reservations about a process that included voting online in the wake of such data breaches like Equifax, Target, etc. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters isn't exactly a technology powerhouse when there are locals who don't have enough brain cells to put together a website. Yet those officials will be the ones overseeing the process
Lol. Funny guy.
Amazon notified me that my email snd debit card info was breached on my second purchace. That was my last purchase.
Easier solution would be to setup a couple voting booths in the employee parking lot. Get everyone to vote just before or after their shifts
In some areas of the country you could offer a "dime bag" to the PT'ers to motivate them to vote?
We have a union?
Do we pay union dues?
Not for a minimum wage job and no benefits.
I'm ok with it. I just don't understand the low participation levels especially from full time guys. I think I saw a break down of votes from my area and it was absymal. Like under 20%.
