2022 Election vote count results
Posted On: Jun 02, 2022

POSTED JUNE 2, 2022

Yesterday’s union election vote count has resulted in Brother Kevin Duchak being elected as the Local’s new President, defeating incumbent Dave McMinn who has served one term and challenger Brother Steven Rochon.

The Officer positions of Business Manager/Financial Secretary, Vice President and Recording Secretary will be decided in three “run-off” elections as no candidate received a majority vote. Return mail ballots are being prepared and will be mailed today, as per the Local Union bylaws. The run-off election vote will be counted on June 29, 2022.

Brother Tony Brand, Local 258 Election Judge, reports that, overall, there was a 26% participation rate in this mail ballot vote with 3750 ballot packages sent and 1,004 packages returned. 51 ballots were spoiled. Please note, the vote count for each position may not correlate with total package return as some ballot packages did not include all possible ballots. Ballots were counted at the Union Hall in Langley.
