Dear Sun Country Mechanics and Related Employees:
On April 11, 2022, the National Mediation Board (“NMB”) Ordered the first scheduled election for the Mechanics and Related Employees cancelled and also Ordered a Rerun Election due to printing errors with the mailing labels and the ballots.
The Rerun Election Ballots will be mailed to employees on April 20, 2022, and the tally will take place at the Board’s offices on June 8, 2022. A time has not yet been specified for the election count.
Sun Country will be provided with copies of the Notice and Rules of Election for the Rerun Election. Both of these documents must be posted by the Carrier where notices to employees are customarily posted at appropriate stations.
Upon receipt of the Ballot, the voter should carefully follow the voting instructions and complete the voting Ballot and promptly mail it back to the NMB so that it is received sufficiently in advance by the NMB prior to the tally so that it can counted on the day of the tally.
If an eligible voter’s Ballot is not received within a reasonable time after the NMB mails them out on April 20, a voter may request a duplicate ballot by contacting the NMB in writing. The request must be signed by the voter requesting the Instructions and mailed in an individual envelope; group requests are not accepted. Requests by telephone, facsimile, or electronic mail are not accepted. Requests for a duplicate ballot received less than seven (7) calendar days before the tally (by June 1, 2022) will not be honored. The name of any employee requesting duplicate ballot will be confidential. Only NMB agents administer and facilitate the voting materials and process. The address for mailing duplicate ballot requests is: NATIONAL MEDIATION BOARD, 1301 K STREET, NW, SUITE 250 E, WASHINGTON, DC 20005. Employees with any questions should call the NMB at (202) 692-5040.
If AMFA receives a majority of votes cast upon the conclusion of the tally on June 8, 2022, then it will be certified as the representative. The NMB will generally issue a Certification based upon the Report of Election Results the next business day following the count.
