We have long waited for this day to come. After a year of lengthy discussions between labor relations and the council, it’s finally here.
The officers & Executive Board is proud to announce the ratification of the paid family leave. On September 2, 2019 notifications/ballots with instructions on how to cast your vote via online or via phone will go out to each member.
Information of whom to call if the ballot wasn’t received by September 9 will be distributed at such time. Last day of casting your online/phone vote will be on September 30, 2019 noon.
We will hold informational sessions at the union hall the second week of September, time and date to be determined.
This is not a free benefit as there’s a cost to each of us. Please read the sample costing chart posted for in-depth information.
The decision of obtaining or not obtaining this benefit is up to those that exercise voting.
We’ll post more information as we get closer to the ratification process.
