Elections and the Importance of YOUR Vote

Voting is a privilege, right and duty of each and every component of a democratic system, i.e., us, the people. It's a moral responsibility of all eligible citizens of a society. Sadly, the truth is, nowadays, many stay away from the process, for varying reasons.

 

As will be noted in September's Pipeline Newsletter, the last opportunity to vote in a Union election was for Local 488 Committees. This election saw over 9000 eligible voters receive a Ballot package; sadly, less than 30% actually took the few seconds to complete and return a ballot.
