In the past few days there have been some concerns, accusations, and assumptions on the merit of the ongoing AMFA–SWA AMT Tentative Agreement Ratification Referendum. The National Executive Council (NEC) has researched this matter and ascertained that over the weekend a member was momentary able access and view the real-time running results.
The NEC has been in contact with the election provider, TrueBallot Inc, the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Labor Management Standards, and AMFA Legal Counsel to investigate the concerns. There is no evidence of tampering with votes or compromising the referendum tally. Additionally, no violations of the AMFA Constitution have occurred.
After investigation and review, therefore, the NEC has unanimously concluded there are no grounds for invalidating or voiding the ratification referendum process. It is of utmost importance to NEC to do our diligence in this matter for the members of AMFA.
This continues to be an active AMFA-SWA TA Ratification Referendum, and the tally will conclude on September 18, 2018, at 10:00 AM ET.
On behalf of the NEC,
