Re: Election Office Case No. PR-436-LU550-NYC




John Carter, a member of Local Union 550, 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 Local Union 550 President and Business Agent Tom Flannery alleging that Mr. Flannery removed election materials from a bulletin board at Jamaica Transport.


The protester now advises the Election Officer that he wishes to withdraw the protest.  The Election Officer finds that the withdrawal effectuates the purpose of the Rules and permits the protest to be WITHDRAWN.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 (1) 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.

Latham & Watkins

885 Third Avenue, Suite 1000

New York, NY 10022

Fax: (212) 751-4864


Copies of the request for hearing must be served on the parties listed above as well as upon the Election Officer, 444 North Capitol Street, NW, Suite 445, Washington, DC 20001, Facsimile (202) 624-3525.  A copy of the protest must accompany the request for a hearing.
