LOCAL 201 MEMBERSHIP VOTING - Wednesday, June 29, 2011 from 6AM to 5PM at the Lynn River Works Auditorium, under the TENT in Fairchild Street parking lot inside the plant, and at the Union Hall (112 Exchange Street, Lynn Ma.


IUE-CWA Locals have to complete their voting process and call in their votes to the national  IUE-CWA Office by 10PM Wednesday night,June 29. IUE-CWA Locals were instructed not to release their membership votes publically (as Locals are voting on different days), until after the National releases the IUE-CWA National vote results Wednesday night.

Other CBC locals (UAW,UE,IBEW,IAM,IFPTE etc) have separate voting processes and their votes are NOT tallied with IUE-CWA votes and some may vote before or after the IUE-CWA national vote deadline. There is no instructions, that we are aware of, in regards to their votes being made public.

IUE-CWA LOCAL 201 has stated its opinion clear in Report # 23, Report #27 and in the Local 201 Executive Policy Board statement (all 3 reports are on our web site). These three reports detail clearly why this Contract should NOT be approved. If anyone is stating that we are putting up "misinformation" on the proposed agreement, please challenge them to show you in print what is incorrect. We have put up the official Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in its entirety on our web site so you can verify what we are saying is true. 

NOTE: There is one error in the National's printed MOU that all locals were given and were informed about the error (that is NOT significant at all in terms of voting for or against this contract). On page 66, section VIII 2(b) - "one(1) year" should be "six (6) months"
