Hello UAW Member,
Here are three things every member of UAW 4121 can do Monday and Tuesday to win a good contract:
1) Vote on strike authorization
If you are reading this email, you’ve probably already heard that the union is holding a vote for a strike authorization. If you haven’t already, Please Vote! Your unique ballot should be in your inbox (or spam folder) with the subject line “UAW4121 2018 SAV – Link to online ballot,” and in-person voting will be available near Drumheller Fountain on Monday 4/23 and Tuesday 4/24 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm.
2) Come to bargaining on Tuesday
If you are concerned about making a reasonable income next year, we have a critical opportunity tomorrow to make our voices heard at the highest level. Provost Baldasty will attend bargaining on Tuesday, April 24th, from 11:30-12:45, at Roosevelt Commons West (Room 271). The Provost will present on the alleged UW budget crisis, and all members are encouraged to come and participate, either by asking questions directly, sharing personal stories of hardships on campus, or just by supporting your fellow ASEs. RSVP here!
3) Get the word out
Finally, since Tuesday is our last day of voting, we need to get the word out to the last people who haven’t voted yet. You probably know a couple of these people! Can you help remind them to vote through a quick conversation or personalized message? Respond to this email and a member of the bargaining committee member will contact you with the names of a few people in your department who still haven’t voted.
