Our slate is fighting for reform—and we want you to have all the information you need to vote.
Five officers were elected outright from the UAW Members United team in the elections held this fall. When no candidate in a particular race earns at least 50% of the votes, a runoff election is held.
Shawn Fain will advance to the runoff election for President, and Daniel Vicente will advance to the runoff for Region 9 Director. Shawn came in less than a percentage point behind Ray Curry in a five-way race, and Dan was the top vote-getter in his three-person race.
Ballots for runoffs will be mailed out on January 12, 2023, and are due back at the postal facility in Ohio by February 28, 2023. We recommend returning your ballot as soon as possible to make sure your vote is counted.

In 2021, UAW members overwhelmingly voted to replace the old delegate system for selecting our top union leadership with a new system that gives each UAW member a vote to directly elect the members of the International Executive Board. This system is known as “One Member, One Vote.”
Our victory means that this year, for the first time in UAW history (!!), rank-and-file members will vote to decide who will lead our union.
The IEB is the leadership of the entire United Auto Workers, representing members in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. The IEB consists of the International President, the International Secretary-Treasurer, three International Vice Presidents, and nine Regional Directors, who serve four-year terms.
According to the UAW website: “The UAW International Executive Board is responsible for carrying out the programs and policies approved by the Constitutional Convention delegates and running the day-to-day operations of the International Union.”
According to the UAW Monitor, UAW members will receive ballots by mail beginning October 17, 2022. All ballots should be mailed by November 18, 2022, and must be received by November 28, 2022.

Candidates will be nominated at the 2022 UAW Constitutional Convention, which will be held in Detroit from July 25-28. In addition to our slate of reform candidates, who have been endorsed by a democratic process of the Unite All Workers for Democracy caucus, you can find information about candidates and nominations from the UAW Monitor.
According to the UAW Monitor, all UAW members in good standing as of October 31, 2022, are eligible to vote in the 2022 UAW International Officer Election, including part-time workers, reinstated members, and retirees.
If no candidate in a race earns the majority of votes, a run-off election will be held in early 2023.
The UAW Monitor website has more information about candidate eligibility, nominations, campaign rules, and more.
The UAW and U.S. Department of Justice signed a consent decree naming an independent court-approved Monitor “to ensure the elimination of fraud, corruption, or illegal conduct” in the UAW. This was required by law because of past “criminal convictions, allegations, sworn testimony, and judicial findings of past problems with fraud, corruption, and criminal conduct by certain officials within the UAW”—which is why we believe it’s time for new leadership.
