Faculty Affairs
Office of the Provost

Dear Colleagues,

On August 27, the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board (PLRB) mailed ballots to eligible voters to participate in the election to determine if Pitt’s faculty will be represented by the United Steelworkers.

If you believe you are eligible to vote but have not received a ballot by mail, please contact the PLRB by emailing katowens@pa.gov to request a ballot. (The list of eligible voters who should be receiving ballots is attached to the election order.)

Ballots are due back to the PLRB on or before Tuesday, October 12, 2021. Ballots received by the PLRB after that date will not be counted, regardless of when they are postmarked.

Questions on topics such as eligibility to vote, how eligibility was determined, and the election are addressed at Your Questions Answered and The Election Process.

Best wishes,

Lu-in Wang
Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs
