The New Contract, Ratification Vote Times & Places

By admin / On / In Local 88

All AFSCME Local 88 Represented Employees,

After a 6-month campaign, we finally have a tentative agreement on a new Contract.  This will be a 3 year contract, starting when the contract is ratified (expected October 2011), and ending on June 30, 2014.  A big “thank you” to each of you who volunteered your time to keep your co-workers informed, come to rallies, sign petitions, take surveys and give the bargaining team feedback.  We believe this is the best contract possible in this economic climate, and we could not have done it without you.

We have scheduled a ratification vote, with the following 8 timeslots (choose the one most convenient for you).  You must be a yellow card signed member to vote, but you can sign a yellow member card at the day of voting at the voting place.  Voting dates and times:
