Rumours - Ratification Votes

June 1, 2016

Brothers and Sisters, I would like to address a rumour that is being spread around some of the offices in regards to the ratification votes. Allegedly, some people are being told that if you are voting “no”, you do not have to go and vote as the Union is counting all ballots that are not cast as a “no” vote.

This rumour is not true.

The only votes that are counted are the ones cast, either for or against the offer. You must cast a ballot to have your voice heard. Please, if you hear any rumours about the vote or you are told something that does not sound right, please contact one of your local union representatives. Now is the time to make your decision. Stand Up or Give Up but take responsibility for your decision.
