What does it mean to vote YES in a recertification election?

Voting YES to recertify means the employee (you) wishes to maintain the current bargaining representative (AFSCME) as your representative for your Collective Bargaining Agreement (the terms and conditions of your employment).

IMPORTANT: All employees in the bargaining unit must vote or else the state will automatically count you as a NO vote.

Recertification has nothing to do with being or becoming a member of AFSCME. Voting YES does not make you a member or require you to pay dues. You do not need to be a member to vote YES. (Although, we would be happy to have you become a member!)

What is at stake if we lose a recertification vote?

Why retain a union when all we’re guaranteed to bargain with an anti-worker employer is base wages, paydays, and the pay you will receive for your job classification? Because, if you lose this recertification election, then you lose everything that is still in your contract, and you lose the chance to get a new contract for at least a period of two years. Your employer would then have the ability to change your pay or to move you to a lower pay grade if they wanted with no recourse from employees.

Voting in this election will run from October 10th (8:00 AM) to October 24th (9:00 AM)
