AFSCME Representation Cards
I have AFSCME union representation cards for
anybody who would like to designate AFSCME
for collective bargaining representative.
These cards do not commit the signer
to either join the union nor pay union dues.
The purpose is twofold:
One, to demonstrate that
30% of workers in the bargaining unit want collective bargaining.
the signer wishes AFSCME to be
the representative in that collective bargaining.
These cards are not even binding, a separate election will eventually be held.
We would like to use the number of cards returned for AFSCME
as a statistical gauge of how successful we will be in this election,
we respectfully ask that you only sign an AFSCME card if
you believe you will vote for AFSCME when this election is called.
The goal here is to get the word to interested people
without getting in the face of those who don't want this to happen.
For this reason I'm only sending out short email messages
and speaking briefly at meetings.
- If you do not want collective bargaining to happen,
please do not fill out an AFSCME card.
- If you want collective bargaining but
want a different union to be the collective bargaining agent,
please fill out a card for that union.
The AFT mailed out signup cards earlier this week.
I haven't seen anything from MCEA yet.
If you want collective bargaining and
want AFSCME to be the collective bargaining agent,
please get a card from me, fill it out, and turn it in.
I have a supply of such cards, and will mention this at staff meetings.
