In accordance with our constitution, we have scheduled several meetings next week for you to vote by secret ballot on the ratification of our new contract. We are very excited to share with you the details of the tentative agreement and to have all members join us to vote. This vote is open to dues-paying members only- if you are unsure of your status, please let us know and we can check. If you are not a member, you can sign up any time before the vote or at the ratification meeting itself and you will be able to cast a ballot. Sign up online at: https://actionnetwork.org/forms/were-standing-together-2/
