Re:  Election Office Case No. P-685-LU299-MGN




A pre-election protest was filed pursuant to Article XIV, Section 2(b) of the Rules for the 1995-1996 IBT International Union Delegate and Officer Election (“Rules”) by James P. Hoffa, a candidate for general president.  Mr. Hoffa alleges that Cassens Transport Company violated the Rules by denying his supporters access to bulletin boards located on the company’s premises.  Mr. Hoffa has now advised the Election Officer that the matter has been resolved and he wishes to withdraw his protest.  The Election Officer, finding that the proposed withdrawal effectuates the purpose of the Rules, permits the protest to be WITHDRAWN.


Any interested party not satisfied with this determination may request a hearing before the Election Appeals Master within one day of receipt of this letter.  The parties are reminded that, absent extraordinary circumstances, no party may rely upon evidence that was not presented to the Office of the Election Officer in any such appeal.  Requests for a hearing shall be made in writing and shall be served on:


Kenneth Conboy, Esq.
