We are very pleased to let you know that Hearst has agreed with our proposal for 100% use of mail ballots for our union election. We appreciate their continued commitment to our safety during this public health crisis. We are looking forward to a timely, safe, and secure election so that we can certify our union and get to the bargaining table as soon as possible.
It is very important to make sure our mailing addresses are up-to-date in MyHearst. The company will submit our addresses to the NLRB and then the NLRB will set the timeline for the election. We will receive guidelines and instructions from the NLRB for the entire process before they mail out ballots. The NLRB will administer the election fully independently and will guarantee a secure, secret ballot process.
We will share more updates as soon as we can. We’ll also be in touch with all of you individually, if you have any questions or concerns. If you’re not yet following our union accounts on Twitter or Instagram, please do!
We hope you’re all holding up OK and that your families are safe. We miss seeing everyone at work everyday, but we’re thrilled to be one step closer to winning our election and finally certifying our union!
