Does your local hold meetings with the members during the summer months? I'm concerned as shouldn't people be kept aware what is going on with negotiations. As these contracts get worse and worse we should be informed on what was discussed and what are the issues that are having some pull back. They could show us what the "Proposed ammendments" are vs. what is currently in the master contract. Perhaps if the local acted more interested in its members they would have a much better turnout when we vote. I don't feel that the texts we receive are very enlightening - way too vague.
