NEXT STEPS In early January 2020, you will receive a full packet of the terms and conditions of the negotiated contract so you can vote for ratification. These ballot packages will come to your HOME address. Please make sure that Local 1180 has your correct address on file. Please open the mail that will be marked “Ballot” from the American Arbitration Association (AAA). Inside will be the information on the contract, a phone number for questions, and a PIN number for you to use to vote on ratification of the contract electronically.
Those votes will be counted by AAA near or around January 28, 2020. AAA will give clear instructions on how to vote and give you all the information you will need to cast your ballot. If a majority of the members vote YES to ratify, AAA delivers the certified results, we contact the Mayor’s Office of Labor Relations, and payout of the 2% due from May 2018 and the payout of the 2.25% due from May 2019 will be in your paycheck 30 to 45 days later.
This has been a long but prevailing process. Thank you for your patience and understanding of the process. We wanted to make sure we did the best we could by all our members, taking into consideration the monies we had allocated to us to spend and where the highest needs in various titles could be met. I hope you support this contract by voting YES to ratify and staying CWA #StrongerTogether.
