    That’s exactly my question which Julie posed: can we get in writing the specifics of the tentative agreement before the vote on Thursday, cause most folks don’t know the specifics…

    The specifics are in line with what was sent to the membership via email burst on 9/20/2011 and 6/30/2011. Additonal details will be available on Thursday at the meetings. The Council is preparing the summary which recounts the details of nearly 30 bargaining sessions over the last 3 years. Council 31 staff and a board member from the Local should be at each voting site to answer any questions that you have. Once your questions, if any, are answered, you can vote up or down on the tentative agreement. The Committee believes the terms deserve a YES vote, or we wouldn’t bring it to the membership.
