For the end of the three year delegate term this January, the CTU held nomination meetings for delegate positions in citywide representative units. This included PSRP and clinician positions for both district and charter schools. The number of members nominated for each representative unit did not exceed the number of positions. So, none of the nominations were contested and elections were not necessary. The names of these new delegates are listed below for each representative unit.

The CTU Executive Board approved supplemental procedures for conducting remote delegate elections to fill vacancies when elections cannot be held in person. Members at schools or in functional groups that have appointed delegates may also request a remote delegate election.
