Local 241 General Elections Voter Guide (2022)

The CTJC is not endorsing any candidates. That should be left to the membership. However, we
recommend candidates based on their willingness to commit to concepts of Revolutionary
Unionism as an organizer and by completing our rigorous Candidate Questionnaire
(https://bit.ly/3hCjdWe).

For those that do neither—but are new to the candidacy—we base our recommendation on
any evidence of loyalty to Keith Hill and Business Unionism.

Regarding unopposed, candidates, we are currently recommending that all current officers not
receive any vote. Leave them blank. We want to send a message that the old regime—of which
no one has publicly condemned Keith Hill’s abuse of members—will not be acknowledged.

We highly recommend that members examine candidate responses to the questionnaire. It was
a brave act to commit to the questionnaire. They deserve your most serious consideration for a
vote. See their responses below this chart. In cases where ALL candidates get a YES, we
recommend choosing those who completed the questionnaire and are organizers.
