1199 Members Vote to Make Our Union Stronger

smaller I voted 2This past week 1199 members voted on two important issues facing our union.  First, members had to decide whether our newly organized child care members would be added to the list of workers in our union’s jurisdiction.  Secondly, members voted on whether to give our union increased resources so we can take on the challenges and adversaries that threaten our union.

From December 1st- December 7th members cast ballots at voting locations across the state.  Below are the voting results.
