With the recently reached Tentative Agreement, a ratification vote will occur on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 for the MIA station and on Wednesday, October 21 for the FLL Station. The ratification vote will take place at the airport in the break rooms from 1100-1500. At the ratification meeting, all members will have an opportunity to have any and all questions answered and the opportunity to cast their vote. These times should allow for everyone who is scheduled to be at work on those days the opportunity to vote on the Tentative Agreement either before, during or after their shift concludes.
If either of those days falls on your day off, you must come in to work to vote. There are no provisions for absentee balloting during the contract ratification process.
Copies of the complete Tentative Agreement are being released this week and will be available in the stations no later than the morning of October 15. I again recommend that the membership support this Tentative Agreement with a YES vote.
If you have any questions, you may reach me directly at email@example.com or by cell at (859) 653-4037. Your patience and solidarity has been essential in reaching a fair and equitable agreement in these negotiations.
With best wishes I remain
Sincerely and fraternally,
James M. Samuel
