Aloha Brothers and Sisters,

We would like to congratulate all the Candidates for the 40 th United Association Convention. Currently the convention is to be scheduled the week of August 23rd in San Diego, CA. pending the decision of our General President Mark McManus as to COVID- 19 concerns and the availability of the San Diego Convention Center.

The election ballot counting was performed on April 20th at 720 Iwilei Road, on the 2nd floor. Attached is the election results as certified by Randy Shimotsu CPA, LLC. The top 18 highest vote counts as well as the salaried elected officials will represent Local 675 at the convention. The remaining 2 will be alternates in the case any of the elected delegates is unable to remain as a delegate.

We want to thank all the candidates for their willingness to serve our great union and also thank all those that voted and participated in the election process. Note that no runoff election for tied votes in the alternate spots are necessary.
