Here are the final results of last night’s vote:
We currently have 388 members. Of those, 16 are listed as non-participating or not in good standing thus unable to vote.Therefore we have 372 eligible voters.
We had 63 ballots cast last night (only 17%).
The next membership meeting will be on Thursday November 21, 2019 at 5:30 PM in the Transportation Building on the 2nd floor.
Besides normal business, Union Officers and Executive Board members will be sworn in.
Union dues are the cost of membership to belong to the union. The dues paid to the union by its membership help to pay for the cost of activities, education or events engaged in by the union members. L453 members paid $744 in dues for Calendar Year 2018.
Because union dues are unreimbursed employee expenses necessary for union membership, deducting union dues might be permitted.
From our friends at Union-Plus:
Unions have played an important role in the lives of America's workers since the early years of our country's history. Unions give their members the power to negotiate for better working conditions and other benefits through collective bargaining. Today, over 14 million American workers belong to unions.
