Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

Candidates have been nominated for the International offices of the ILWU. You’ve probably received a ballot by now for that election. It is important that you take the time to vote. The IBU as  the Marine Division of the ILWU participates in many ways with the International and a strong showing at the ballot box shows all of the members, divisions, and locals that we take democracy seriously and that we have a strong voice in the affairs of the union. Traditionally we have had about a 35% voter return, lets show our Union Pride! So VOTE and be heard!

Yours in Solidarity,

Joshua J. Stephenson
