Roger Olivas, member of Local Union 439, filed a pre-election protest pursuant to Article XIII, Section 2(b) of the Rules for the 2020-2021 IBT International Union Delegate and Officer Election (“Rules”).  The protest alleged that members of the local union executive board violated the Rules by wearing campaign shirts to a local union general membership meeting.


By email received March 22, 2021, the protestor requested to withdraw the protest.
