Re:              Election Office Case No. PR-240-JMC-PNW




Ray Bartolotti, president of Local 938, filed a pre-election protest pursuant to Article XIV, Section 2(b) of the Rules for the 1995-1996 IBT International Union Delegate and Officer Election (“Rules”) against the campaign of Joe McLean, a candidate for International vice president.  Mr. Bartolotti alleged that Al Morrison, campaign manager for Joe McLean forwarded campaign literature to local union stewards and requested that they post the campaign literature on union bulletin boards.


Mr. Bartolotti advises the Election Office that he wishes to withdraw his protest.  The Election Officer, finding that the withdrawal effectuates the purposes of the Rules, permits the protest to be WITHDRAWN.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:
