A union may not regulate the contents of campaign literature it is asked to distribute and may not require that it be permitted to read the literature before distribution. The union may not censor campaign literature in any way, even if the literature includes derogatory remarks about other candidates. A union’s contention that mailing certain campaign literature may constitute libel does not justify a refusal to distribute the literature since the union is under a legal duty to distribute the material.

Officer Candidate Biographies


Monica Fernandes

For Secretary

I have been with Kaiser Permanente in the Emergency Room for 8 years. I know what it feels like to not know and understand our contract or feel like we are being represented. Finishing this year 2018 as the contract specialist has opened my eyes to the needs of the members. I see the importance of having good officers to be there for you, even if it’s just to listen. Being apart of the UNAC officers for 2019-2021, I want to be a trusted friend, I want to be a resource, but most of all I want to help you believe and understand our union.
