            Lawrence Pskowski, member of Local Union 560, filed a pre-election protest pursuant to Article XIII, Section 2(b) of the Rules for the 2015-2016 IBT International Union Delegate and Officer Election (“Rules”).  The protest alleged that local union officials interfered with the right of Pskowski and others to campaign on employer parking lots where employees park their vehicles and in breakrooms, in violation of the Rules.


            Election Supervisor representative Christine Mrak investigated this protest.


            By email dated March 30, 2016, the protestor requested to withdraw this protest.  Finding that withdrawal serves the purposes of the Rules, we deem this protest WITHDRAWN.
