LCFT Retiree Council

Follow the LCFT Retiree Facebook Page for current events and news!

There are upcoming elections for both the local and our Retirees Council. Our local constitution calls for three-year terms, which will expire June 30th. Our council’s bylaws sync our election cycles, so council officers’ terms also expire in June.  

‚ÄčLocal 504 Elections

You will soon be receiving ballots and candidate information by email for Local elections. Voting will be done primarily by email. (There is a provision for paper balloting at the Union Office.) 
As per the Local’s Constitution, all seven officer positions are up for election. In three offices, nominees are running unopposed and will therefore be considered elected by acclamation and these will not appear on the ballot: 

  •    President 
  •    Treasurer  
  •    Vice President for COPE/Political Action

The following four offices are contested and will be on the ballot: 

  •    Executive Vice President  
  •    Vice President for Defense  
  •    Vice President for Member Engagement  
  •    Secretary

The Retirees Council is not making endorsements, but is encouraging all voters to review the candidates’ biographical information and consider leadership experience.  
Council Elections  
The election committee for our Retirees Council will set guidelines and timelines for our council elections. All offices (President, Vice President, Secretary Treasurer) and all Delegates/Alternates to the Delegate Assembly will be elected. Watch your inbox for further details.

This year is an election cycle for LCFT officers and for the Retirees Council officers. As you may remember, our newest bylaws sync our Retirees Council election cycle with Local 504’s three-year cycle. Therefore, our current officers’ terms end in June. Watch for nomination and election information. Elections will be electronic, so make sure we have your current membership information and correct email address. Only current members can vote. If you know someone who has let their membership lapse it’s not too late to renew. Contact the Union Office at 847-623-7725 to have a membership form sent out.
