The following is the policy of Local 607 re campaign mail-outs and must be agreed to by any candidate desiring one. If a candidate does not comply with the conditions contained herein, the candidate will be denied a campaign mail-out.

1. Candidates for the election are entitled to one mail-out between the date of May membership meeting and the Election day(s).

2. Mail-outs must be produced without the use of union equipment or materials, with all such costs being the sole responsibility of the candidates. Mail-outs must be signed by the candidates issuing them, and the candidates recognize they are personally responsible for all statements made therein.

3. Candidates may request, and the local union will inform candidates of the number of current members in good standing.Candidates must bring their mail-out to the union office at a pre-arranged time to be addressed by union staff. The mail-outs must be in sealed, stamped, unaddressed envelopes. The candidates must remain present, or have a designated watcher present at all times while the envelopes are having address stickers applied. Which will be done by union staff assigned to the task. After all envelopes are addressed, a union staff member will, accompanied by the candidate or designated watcher, take the envelopes to the main post office and place them in the mail. At no time will the union or the candidate/watcher have sole custody of the addressed mail-out.

4. The candidate will pay the local union an amount equal to the office casts and total wage package for staff members assigned to such mail-out for all time spent on the task within thirty (30) days of the posting of the mail-out. Such cost is recognized to be a "lawful fee" as set out in Article III Section 3 (i) of the LIUNA Uniform Local Union Constitution.

The Undersigned recognizes and agrees to the conditions and requirements set out herein.
