ISSUE:              Report of local 4400 presidential election challenge


Local 4400 Executive Board,


The Election Committee received a challenge of the results of the local 4400 presidential election from Jason Ballman on December 21, 2020. After reviewing the evidence presented the Election Committee has found there is merit to the challenge.


The committee found that violations took place in the following:


  1. Title IV of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959. Click Here

  2. CWA Universal Operating Procedural Manual.

       Section – Elections – Page 11 (2)c Click Here

   3. Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between CWA and CBT.

       Article X – Section 2 Click Here

Mr. Ballman’s challenge was presented via e-mail:

            “Pete Eversole used company provide equipment (cell phones) for texts and group texts to multiple members, multiple times, to campaign and gain an unfair advantage throughout the election process.”

The Election Committee found this to be true and factual with the evidence presented.


Mr. Eversole used union bulletin boards to campaign by displaying his campaign literature on the bulletin boards.

Election Committee Chairperson Steve Fritz contacted Mr. Eversole during the election process and informed him that the campaign literature must be removed. The literature was not removed for over a month.


Therefore, the Election Committee will conduct a new election for the position of president of CWA Local 4400. Ballots will be sent out by CWA District 4 and counted by the Local 4400 Election Committee.
