The parties will be working together to finalize a memorandum for you to view and vote on. Roll out meetings will be scheduled and we will let you know once dates are finalized for those. We greatly appreciate your solidarity and patience as we have worked to get a deal. At this time we feel it is important to let you, the members have their say. The full memorandum will be available for viewing ASAP. Some of the highlights include:

Your Bargaining Committee
When union activists talk about ‘organizing’ they are usually referring to either internal or external/outside organizing. Internal organizing refers to getting your existing membership engaged, active, informed, and ready to act on a specific issue. External or outside organizing means unionizing non-union workers through the certification process so that they have a fair collective agreement.
