We have been pretty busy this month with going around the state with the 97 contract explanation and vote. It was ratified with a 74% approval rate. In recognizing the issue of where the meetings would be held, I would like to apologize. The reason why was to the get the same information out to our members especially about the benefits.
We still have a lot of issues on NGrid property which we will be addressing going forward. It is better to do under an extension then going into full blown negotiations.
We still need to try and get a contract for Town of Worcester which was turned down last month.
