All chapter officers are elected annually unless your adopted chapter bylaws explicitly provide for a different length of office. The new officers shall be elected by April 15, 2024, and shall take office by September 1 of each year, unless your chapter bylaws specify a different date. 

Please be sure to verify membership for all nominees. If you need a list of members in good standing for your chapter, please contact the UFF office.

Chapter elections must comply with UFF rules and those of our affiliates, as well as the Landrum Griffin Act.  Here are some facts and information you may find helpful:

  • Senate and Delegate allocations are determined by the official January 15, 2024, membership figures reported to and verified by the national affiliates.
  • Each chapter gets at least two Senate seats, regardless of its membership total (one seat for the Chapter President and at least one seat for a Senator).
  • The ratio of UFF Senators to members is one Senator per 25 members (or major portion thereof).
  • Your Chapter President automatically takes one Senate seat allocated to your chapter.
  • Your chapter should elect one Alternate Senator for each Senate seat allotted when practicable.
  • The ratio of FEA Delegates to members is one FEA Delegate per 50 members.
  • Your chapter should elect one Alternate FEA Delegate for each FEA Delegate seat allotted when practicable.
  •  Please refer to the UFF Constitution & Bylaws for more information.
  • All elected FEA Delegates and Alternate FEA Delegates must be submitted by June 1, 2024 to be considered for attendance to the FEA Delegate Assembly held in October 2024 (Orlando, FL).
