AFSCME NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE - 2005/2006

Hennepin County Local 34

CONTRACT VOTE RESULTS (12/2/2005): IT'S OFFICIAL! All of the ballots have been unfolded, sorted into many piles, counted and recounted and finally, tabulated. After the hard work of your sisters and brothers, Molly Malecki, Jennifer McNair, Don Swain, Cate Wagner, Dave Tremewan, Cliff Robinson, Maureen Glover, Cliff Poehler, and myself with the able assistance of our Business Agents, Matt Nelson and Steve Marincel, we have the result of that count.

With an overwhelming majority - over 95% - the contract has been accepted by all 6 AFSCME Locals - 34, 552, 1719, 2822, 2864 and 2938 - Legal Unit.

Remember that you as members of AFSCME were the ones responsible for this success by your participation in the process. Your visible and vocal presence at the rallies, your e-mails and phone calls, combined with the work of the Master Negotiations Committee, the Action Team, the Strike Committee and the Table Team is what made this Building for a Better Contract Campaign the success story that it was. Way to go!!!!!!
