On Friday September 29, 2006, a union vote took place concerning modifications in the Driver and Monitor Contract. Many union members feel that they were not properly notified or given accurate information concerning the vote.
Specifically, members were not notified in a timely manner to make arrangements or allocations of their time to participate in the vote. Some members were notified the very day of the vote and some were not notified at all. The preferred current ASCME communication style is to put paper flyers in the transportation building lounge. This style operates under the assumption that all drivers and monitors visit the lounge, which is not true.
Additionally, the amendments to the contract were not given to each union member in a timely manner to develop an opinion of good or evil. Only two pieces of paper that were confusing to some lay next to the vote box for drivers and monitors to make a very quick decision to vote yes or no. Furthermore, union members were not provided their own personal copy
We, the undersigned, who are Members in good standing of the ASFCME Local Union 3995, do hereby request for protest of the vote of addendum for MCCSC Drivers and Monitors.
We are asking that you sign the petition to stop the current addendum vote. We would like to see that union members are afforded the respect to be properly notified of the date to vote and given a personal copy of accurate information that the vote is concerning.
According to the AFCSME constitution, a 15 day prior notice is the requirement concerning any election votes. We would like to make this a requirement concerning any type of vote that union members will need to make.
