UWUA Urges Patience as All Ballots Are Counted

WASHINGTON, DC (NOVEMBER 4, 2020) – Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA) President James Slevin today released the following statement:

“This is an extraordinary election where coronavirus forced millions more people to cast absentee ballots than usual. Given these difficult circumstances, we knew it was unlikely we’d have a clear winner in the presidential election yet.

“What is clear is that every last vote in this election will be counted by hard-working, everyday Americans who take on this responsibility every election cycle. We must stand in unity to uphold our democratic processes, even in times of crisis. Nothing, not even this pandemic, will deter us from exercising this sacred right, from making our voices heard, or from receiving a fair and final result.


Chartered in 1945, the Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA), AFL-CIO represents around 50,000 active members employed in America’s utility sectors including the electric, gas, water, and related professional and service industries. James Slevin is UWUA’s National President.
