Article VIII

SLATES

1.         Formation

            (a)        Each candidate shall have the right in conformity with this Article to seek nomination, be nominated, campaign and appear on the ballot for any delegate, alternate delegate, or International Officer position as a member of a slate of candidates, regardless of whether the slate is full or partial.  No candidate shall be compelled to run as a member of a slate, nor shall any candidate be permitted to run on more than one slate.

            (b)        To form a slate, there shall be mutual consent between and among all candidates running on the slate.  Such mutual consent shall be evidenced by the signing of a declaration by all members of the slate, giving the position that each candidate seeks and the name, if any, of the slate to be formed.  Slate declaration forms for delegate and alternate delegate nominations and elections shall be submitted to the Local Union's Secretary-Treasurer (with a copy to the Election Supervisor) and slate declaration forms for International Officer nominations and elections shall be submitted to the Election Supervisor.  Amended declarations may be submitted adding additional candidates, provided that the deadlines specified in Subsection (c) below are met.

            (c)        In the case of delegate and alternate delegate nominations and elections, such slate declaration shall be filed at the earliest possible date but in no event later than three (3) days after the Local Union's final delegate nominations meeting.  In the case of International Officer nominations and elections, such slate declarations shall be filed at the earliest possible date but in no event later than August 31, 2016.  In the case of International Officer candidates, the slate declaration shall include the designation of a treasurer for the slate.  The slate treasurer must be a member of the Union, but need not be a candidate.

            (d)        Should one or more members of a slate be found ineligible to run, such ineligibility shall not affect the eligibility of remaining members of the slate.

2.         Limitations

            (a)        Once a candidate declares his/her intent to run as a member of a slate, he/she may not retract such declaration.

            (b)        The number of slate members shall not exceed the number of positions open for election.
