On 09/28/2017 Local 1945 and PFA reached tentative terms to the first CBA. We understand that there are a lot of questions about what is contained in this document.
Understand that the contract must be ratified by you, the member.
Local 1945 would like to hold 3 informational meetings to review the process, the content and the next steps as it pertains to the membership. It is extremely important that members attend one of the three informational meetings.
October 11th - 0900 Regular Membership Meeting
October 17th - Location and Time TBD
October 23rd - Location and Time TBD
After the last meeting on October 23rd the ratification vote will take place. Our goal is to have the votes in and the contract ratified by November 2nd.
The bargaining team is excited to share with you the details of the past 9 months. We believe that this first contract has a solid foundation that will not only benefit our membership today, but for the next 100 years.
Thank you –
Local 1945 Bargaining Team
