First, Congratulations to our new Trustee Mr. Gerald Jones! And congratulations to all the Officers, new and old, of Local 2432. We’ll have more about the Officers, when they officially take their positions in a couple of day.s
Then on to today’s Ratification Vote about the Contract Imposition because of the Financial Urgency in Fiscal Year 12 (The FU in FY12). The vote was NO, we do not accept the contract changes.
What does this mean? It means that we do not accept the changes the Commission imposed on our contracts. It means there is a chance that in the future we will get our pay and benefits restored to the levels they were at in September 2011 when all this took effect. It means there is a chance that in the future we might get everything taken away given back. It means that as Local 2432 we still have some fight in us and Management’s attempts at breaking our spirit and busting our Union have failed.
