Re:  Election Office Case No. P-1292-LU912-NYC




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

Joe Fahey, president of Local Union 912.  In his protest, Mr. Fahey alleged that the Hoffa campaign was violating the Rules by operating a telephone bank in which members were asked who they were going to vote for in the IBT International officer election.  If the response was Ron Carey, the telephone operator advised the member that they should consider their vote cast and not mail their ballot.  Mr. Fahey now advises the Election Office that he wishes to withdraw his protest.


The Election Officer, finding that the withdrawal effectuates the purpose of the Rules, permits the protest to be WITHDRAWN.
