Subject:    Contract Ratification

Thank you to all those who waited in line for over two (2) hours to vote. The paper ballot requirement was voted on and approved by the Council of Delegates.
In the past, a voice/hand count or paper ballot vote decision was made at the ratification meeting.
Thank you again for your solidarity, support, and patience. As stated yesterday, we did not obtain the 3 step removal until March 14, 2023 and the September 1, 2022 retroactivity until April 18, 2023.
Thank you also to our retired teachers who volunteered to help with the voting.
