General Membership Meeting 8/28/20 to Amend Constitution
At 3 PM on Friday, August 28, the Federation will have a general membership meeting to allow members to vote on language to amend our Constitution so we can vote online (electronically) for contracts. Given the need to focus on safety in the age of COVID and the significant improvements in electronic voting platforms, the Executive Board proposes changes to Articles VIII and XIV of our Constitution to permit online voting.
To see the current AFT 1388 Constitution, go here. To see the proposed changes to Articles VIII and XIV, click here.
The Executive Board recommends a YES vote for the proposed changes to Articles VIII and XIV in our Constitution. Without these changes, we will not be able to vote on our 2020-2022 contract.
Our general membership meeting will begin at 3 PM. Members can join the meeting via Zoom by using the information below. When we have quorum, we will motion to approve the proposed language changes. If we have a second to this motion, we will discuss and vote on the changes. This will be the only item on the agenda. Executive Board members will be available after deliberations for general questions and updates.
