Jason Lee '12 will serve as vice chair of the Undergraduate Finance Board after defeating Tyler Rosenbaum '11 in a runoff election, the elections board announced Wednesday afternoon.

Lee garnered 58.2 percent of the 455 votes cast to win.

"I'm really grateful for winning, and I'm thankful to everyone who supported me," Lee said.
Lee originally received 49.1 percent of the vote in the first election held last week, UCS President Clay Wertheimer wrote in an e-mail to The Herald, less than 1 percent away from the amount needed to win a simple majority.

All election results were ratified at the Undergraduate Council of Students general body meeting Wednesday night.

"This has been the smoothest election in the last four years," Wertheimer said.
Members of the Student Labor Alliance also gave a presentation at the meeting, calling for UCS support next year for establishing a protocol to deal with holding events at venues where employees have called for a boycott due to labor disputes and failed contract negotiation.

The call comes after this year's Gala had to be moved from the Westin Hotel downtown to an on-campus venue after employees called for a boycott because of contract negotiations.
SLA called for these labor disputes to be included in escape clauses within contracts, with language stipulating the ability to get out of a contract without financial penalty.

SLA is also looking into a resolution passed in November 2005 by the American Association of University Professors that advised members to not cross picket lines in order to hold their conferences, according to SLA member Haley Kossek '13.

Kossek said SLA is calling for a similar "protocol that student groups not cross a picket line" because "crossing a picket line is not a neutral act." These discussions will continue into the fall, and Kossek urged UCS support.
