Sisters and Brothers of the Wireman Unit,

This is a contract update for the Inside Construction Agreement. The ten volunteer tellers completed the tally of ballots at 4:30 this afternoon. The results of the ballots cast are: 587 to accept and 570 to reject. 17 votes was the final passing margin.

There were 61 ballots not opened because the committee was not able to determine if the person is a current member.

Thank you to all of the members that voted. Clearly each individual vote does count.

In Solidarity,

Jim Tosh, Business Manager
and Financial Secretary
