* This is the three-hour mark of the meeting. The agenda may not exceed three hours, according to the bylaws, and so no further items may be scheduled at this point. However, the Executive Committee will move a motion by 8:30 p.m. to extend the meeting by one hour in order to finish counting ballots, to announce the Executive Committee’s decision, and to discuss next steps.

Voting by secret ballot will begin at 6:30 p.m. and continue until 8:30 p.m. The ballots will be counted immediately after voting ends and the results will be announced in the meeting. The Executive Committee will then caucus briefly and announce its decision in the meeting.

Members are not obliged to attend the entire meeting in order to vote on the Employer’s final offer, but we strongly encourage members to attend and listen to the bargaining report before voting, if possible. Members may vote anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Please bring a piece of ID.
