Post-Dispatch Contract Ratification Meeting
Tuesday, August 18, 2015
Post-Dispatch Building, Conference Room 206
The meeting will start at noon and your Guild staff, Local president and PD unit chair will be on hand to discuss what occurred during the bargaining process and the proposed changes that were agreed to by the parties will be explained.
A summation of the proposed changes are currently being circulated (if you need one, ask your Guild steward) and copies will be available at the meetings.
Following the explanation of changes, there will be a question and answer period and each member will have a chance to ask for clarification or any other questions they may have.
After the changes have been explained, voting will commence. The vote will be conducted by secret ballot and tellers will be on hand to conduct the election.
Another meeting will start at 3:00 p.m. and, again, there will be an explanation of the proposed changes, followed by a question and answer period and then more voting.
The polls will remain open until 6:00 p.m.
To make the best decision possible, everyone is encouraged to attend one of the meetings, listen to the summation, ask questions and fully acquaint themselves with the proposed contract prior to casting their ballot.
