We need to show the Administration that we are united and prepared to take the necessary action to win an excellent contract. We are voting on a referendum September 1st-3rd to establish a Strike Hardship Fund for our local and we urge all members to vote YES. This fund will support our most economically vulnerable faculty members if Administration leaves us with no choice but to call for a strike.
Hundreds of your colleagues have already signed commitment cards promising to vote yes in the referendum and we need your help getting everyone out to vote! We will be phone banking at the AFT 2121 office (311 Miramar Ave.) this Sunday from 10am-2pm and Monday through Wednesday from 3-7pm. Call organizer Michael McCown (512-968-5345) if you can join us.
We want a contract – a good contract – by Thanksgiving. By voting yes, we will show the Administration that we are serious, powerful, and united in support of a good contract. Together we can win it!
