Questions received…..

By admin / On / In Local 88


We’ve received a few questions from folks who can’t attend the conference this weekend about whether they can still run for the bargaining team. If you are unable to attend on Saturday but wish to run for the bargaining team then we request that you follow the process below:

– Reach out to another bargaining delegate and ask them to nominate you.
– Write a brief statement about why you’d like to be on the bargaining team that can be read out loud to the delegation before the election. The statement should be submitted to the delegate making the nomination.
