Nominations for USofCC offices are now open

Two years have sped by and it’s again time to elect new officers for our union! It’s an exciting time: negotiations for a new multi-year contract are concluding and implementation of the job study, aimed to rationalize position titles, descriptions and salaries across the college, lies ahead.

In August 2016, USofCC will hold elections for all Executive Committee positions. For the first time we will also hold elections for Association Reps (representatives for buildings and large departments).

Think about running for a position in the union! It’s a great opportunity to serve your fellow staff, make life better at Columbia, meet members from across the college, and build your leadership skills.

Attached are descriptions of the duties of each position as well as two nomination forms: one for Executive Committee positions and another for Association Reps and  representatives to the IEA Regional Council. For additional information, see the Bylaws on the USofCC web site (

Only those who are union members can nominate, run for office and vote. If you are not yet a member and would like to join or move from agency fee payer status to full membership, contact Oscar Valdez at

The timeline is as follows:

July 20, 2016 through August 3, 2016 – Nominations
August 9 through August 18, 2016 – Campaigning
Week of August 22, 2016 – College-wide elections

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Respectfully, the Elections Committee:

Ingrid Sagor ( 312-369-3251
