Know Your Rights
Under new legislation, your employer must grant you three (3) hours to vote in the November 5, 2019 election for those scheduled to work on this day. While the law requires less notification, we suggest you provide two (2) weeks notification. You must be registered to vote in the election. You should always exercise your constitutional right to vote.
Your employer, under the law, can select the three (3) hour time period.
While there is no way anyone can ever know how you vote, employers who wish to go through the effort can find out if you’re registered and if you voted, so please make sure you’re registered, and that you vote.
If you are refused the time off, please notify us immediately. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact your UPSEU representative. Download this notice here
