NOTICE OF ELECTION
The election of International officers is being conducted by mail ballot by the Election Supervisor for the International
Brotherhood of Teamsters (“IBT”). The ballot count will begin after 10:00 a.m EST on November 15, 2021, at the IBT
International Election Count Site in Alexandria, Virginia.
TO BE ELIGIBLE TO VOTE, a member must have his or her dues paid through October, 2021. Members may
become eligible by paying any unpaid dues and initiation fees at their local union by the close of business on November
12, 2021. Members whose dues are withheld by their employer under a check off provision in their collective
bargaining agreement will not be declared ineligible to vote due to the employer’s failure to make timely payment of
those dues to the local union. For a full statement of the rules governing voting eligibility, please see Article V of the
Rules for the 2020-2021 IBT International Union Delegate and Officer Election. The Election Supervisor’s final ballot
pickup from the U.S. Postal Service will be at 9:00 a.m. EST on November 15, 2021. Only ballots received at the
Election Supervisor’s post office box by this date and time will be counted.
Vote for no more than one (1) General President, one (1) General Secretary-Treasurer., seven (7) At-Large Vice
Presidents, three (3) International Trustees, three (3) Central Regional Vice Presidents or three (3) Eastern Regional
Vice Presidents or two (2) Southern Regional Vice Presidents or four (4) Western Regional Vice Presidents
TO VOTE, fill in completely the oval to the left of the candidate of your choice. USE A BLACK OR BLUE
PEN.
You may vote for any of the candidates individually. Do not vote for more than the number of positions to be filled for
each office.
You may vote for a slate of candidates by filling in the oval to the left of a slate name. A slate vote counts as a vote for
each of the individual candidates on that slate.
If you vote for a slate of candidates, only your slate vote will be counted. A vote for any individual candidate not on
the slate will not be counted. A vote for a slate overrides a vote for an individual candidate.
IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE, DO NOT CROSS OUT. Instead, request a new ballot from the IBT Election
Supervisor by calling 1-844-428-8683.
DO NOT GIVE YOUR BALLOT TO ANYONE TO MARK OR MAIL ON YOUR BEHALF. No person or entity
shall limit or interfere with the right of each IBT member to determine independently how to cast his or her vote and to
cast and mail the ballot himself or herself. The Election Supervisor shall not hesitate to impose the most severe
sanctions for violation of the prohibition against solicitation of a member’s ballot by any other Union member, officer,
business agent, steward or other person, including, but not limited to, recommending appropriate disciplinary
proceedings against members involved, referring the matter to the Government for appropriate action under law
(including the Final Order and Agreement) and, when appropriate, disqualifying the candidate on whose behalf ballots
were solicited.
If you have any questions about this election process, if you have recently moved, if you need a
replacement ballot or if you need any ballot materials, request assistance immediately by calling
1-844-428-8683.

FARRELL, Edward ‘Eddie’ Phillip

Jan 27, 2021 | 15 condolences

Sydney

We are shocked and saddened to announce the passing of Edward Phillip Farrell on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at the QEII Health Sciences Center in Halifax.

Born on May 11, 1960 in Sydney, Ed was the son of the late Thomas Michael and Bertha Mary (MacIsaac) Farrell.

Ed is survived by his partner in life, Louise Lever; two sons, Timothy Farrell and Avery Morellato; siblings, David (Helena), Charlie (Karen), Donnie, Michael, Marilyn (Fred) Gillespie, Joann, Debbie (Wayne) Stockley, Catherine Mortensen, Linda (Lawrence) Digou, Sheila (Alex) Digou and Pearl (Boris) Santekuces.

Eddie was a long-time employee of Purolator. He enjoyed watching his beloved Montreal Canadiens, camping in Cheticamp, bingo on Wednesday nights, Avery’s baseball games, and long drives in his truck.

Besides his parents, Ed was predeceased by siblings, Marie Berard, Patricia and Tommy.

The family would like to thank the staff at the QEII for the kindness and care that Eddie received during his brief stay.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life for Edward Farrell will be held at Pier Community Funeral Home, 1092 Victoria Rd. (entrance on Church St.), Whitney Pier on Monday, February 1, 2021 at 6 p.m. with all Covid-19 protocols in place.

Donations in memory of Eddie may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
