Dear Guild Member,

The Guild will hold TWO separate contract ratification votes next week.

The Main Unit will vote Tuesday, July 7 from 5-8pm.

The unit will vote Wednesday July 8 from 3-6 pm.

Both votes will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn (1100 Arch St.). Guild officers will be available at both sessions to answer questions.

You only get to vote for the contract in your unit.

If you wish to vote by email, you MUST follow these instructions for your vote to count:
REPLY to this email
Write Your NAME and UNIT.
Write YES or NO.
Email voting for both contracts ENDS at NOON, TUESDAY, July 7.

The tentative agreements and new contract language are attached. The portion is Pages 6 to 9, the individual tentative agreements begin on Page 10. Anything not here remains from the previous contracts.

The bargaining committee recommends the ratification of both contracts.

Thank you for your support throughout this arduous process.

In Solidarity,
