Clerical factions clash
By GEORGE LOBSENZ
A controversial election in the University clericals'
union UAW local 2401 has sparked acrimonious accusa-
tions and animosity as two factions wage struggle for
Taking place this week, the election pits Clericals
for a Democratic Union (CDU) against Unity Caucus,
iith all union elective posts to be filled.
CDU, VICTORS in the contested January ,elections,
hopes to retain control of the union in the face of a
determined challenge from Unity.
The present elections stem from an appeal filed with
the UAW international by a union group including some
prominent Unity Caucus members. The appeal concerns
"procedural problems" in the January competition.
The UAW international upheld the appeal, overturned
the results of the previous election, and scheduled this
According to Unity presidential candidate and mem-
ber of the appealing group Debbie Moorehead, the
reason for the complaint was improper certification of
MOOREHEAD maintained that CDU failed to have
the union's election committee certify the results.
"Certification is to be done by the election commit-
tee," Moorehead said, "but it was people who were at
that particular meeting after the election who certified
Moorehead also pointed to a particular trustee race
as indicative of what happened in January. She said
no candidate gained a formal majority in that race,
yet the entire election was certified even though no
run-off had been held to ascertain a clear winner in
the trustee race.
Moorehead also said the appeal was made because
there was "great confusion (among union members) in
terms of who was eligible to vote and who wasn't" in
the January elections.
SUSAN SUSSELMAN, signer of the appeal and Unity
financial secretary-treasurer candidate, echoed Moore-
head's charges indicting CDU's conduct in the January
elections, adding some allegations of her own.
"The election committee was being intimidated by
one of the factions," she asserted. "They were pre-
vented from enforcing rules they were charged with
upholding." Susselman did not elaborate on the alleged
intimidation, but she did name the faction mentioned
as "the opposition."
Susselman also indicated that there was some con-
fusion over eligibility. She charged CDU with influenc-
ing probable pro-CDU unionists to vote while discour-
aging union members with anti-CDU sentiments.
CDU PRESIDENT Carolyn Weeks vehemently denied
Moorehead's and Susselman's allegations and shot off
some salvos in return.
"They are lying through their teeth," Weeks charged.
"They'll say anything to get back into power."
Weeks went on to term Unity Caucus a "puppet" of
the UAW international, which she claims wanted to
muscle into control over Local 2001.
