Special Hotline – (CORRECTION) – Willingness to Serves for Base Representatives
December 11, 2014
Listed below are the corrected Willingness-to-Serve (WTS) results for base elections, followed by additional information. There are five changes to the results posted yesterday evening:
- There will be a third candidate in the CLT Base Vice President election.
- There will be an election for JFK Base Vice President.
- There is an additional duly elected OCR at DCA-AA.
- A duly elected OCR should have been listed under DCA-US rather than CLT.
- An additional duly elected OCR at DFW should have been listed.
The first three changes resulted from the fact that the National Ballot Committee (NBC) did not become aware until today of three WTS’s that had been timely submitted. In the cases of both CLT and JFK, a member had submitted a WTS for OCR/BCR and a separate WTS for Base Vice President. However, the Vice President WTS was not discovered because both WTS’s were sent in a single envelope. The DCA-AA OCR’s case was similar, although his WTS was included in the same envelope as another candidate’s WTS. In each situation, the NBC thought all of the pages submitted were part of a single WTS. In the case of the fifth change, the WTS was received in a timely manner but inadvertently omitted from the Hotline list.
Although the instructions on the WTS notice states, “Only one form per envelope is allowed,” that is not a requirement imposed by the APFA Constitution or Policy Manual (or by federal law). Instead, it is a rule adopted by the NBC to help ensure that the NBC does not inadvertently miss a WTS, as happened here. However, in the past when two WTS’s were submitted in a single envelope, the NBC has accepted both. Therefore, in accordance with that past practice, and after consulting with APFA legal, the NBC has accepted the WTS’s for CLT Base Vice President, JFK Base Vice President, and DCA-AA OCR.
