Could we or should we change what makes you eligible to vote? I'm wondering what percentage of those eligible to vote have been employed less than 5 years. What kind of turnout was it from those that are here for a career vs those pt'ers with no intentions on staying. I was thinking something like you would become eligible to vote the second time a contract is voted on since you became employed, or maybe at 5 years. If you haven't been there through one, you wouldn't really have an understanding how things can or will actually change when a new agreement is reached. And because of that you're probably much less likely to pay attention and vote. Second time around, you've been there long enough to get it and would hopefully value your new ability to vote. At first I was thinking that pt needed a separate contract than ft, but the pt'er vote would be pitiful and the company would be able to get away with anything they wanted. Thoughts? *Edit* sorry I didn't realize there were a bunch of other threads started about voting eligibility, it's just what was on my mind today, and I posted when I got home before browsing. Throw this into one of those if you want, mods.
