The bargaining team has decided to ask members to vote to authorize a strike. This would allow the bargaining team to call a strike if circumstances justify. A 2/3 majority of voters is necessary to authorize the bargaining committee to call for a strike.
Voting will begin tomorrow (April 13) and continue through April 21. Members may either vote online, or in person on campus. All votes will remain anonymous.
Members will receive a unique link to an online ballot via email tomorrow morning. Please make sure that firstname.lastname@example.org is in your accepted senders list, and look for “UAW4121SAV – Link to online ballot” in the subject line. If you do not receive an email link by 10:30 am tomorrow, please email email@example.com with your name and department affiliation to request an online ballot. The online system will close at 11:00 pm PDT on April 21.
