(Waupun) Teachers in the Waupun School district will begin voting later this month to determine if they will continue to be represented by the Waupun Area Education Association. The Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission issued the Notice of Election this week stating that their agency will be conducting a secret ballot to determine if 51-percent in Waupun’s existing union wants to be part of the collective bargaining unit. The election will be done by telephone and online with the assistance of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), a neutral organization. Eligible voters who are currently union members in the Waupun School District can begin voting at noon on Wednesday, October 31 through noon on Tuesday, November 20. Voters cannot change their vote after it is cast.
Votes can be cast by telephone toll free at 1-866-458-9862 or online www.aaaelections.org/WERC.
