I would like to start off by thanking each and every one of you who made time to show up to one of the fourteen Informational Meetings I held at the hall last week. As a Union Member, it is your duty to make an educated decision when you fill out your Official Ballot.
By now, you should have received your Official Ballot for determining the outcome of the proposed Collective Bargaining Agreement between IBEW Local Union 1049 and National Grid. Please take a moment to carefully read the instructions attached before filling out your Official Ballot. You may only mark an 'X' in the option box that you choose. No other markings should be made on the Official Ballot. Please place the Official Ballot in the Secret Ballot Envelope, then place that in the mailing envelope. You must write your name and address on the mailing envelope.
Your vote is your voice. It is your right as a union member to vote on this contract ratification. If you do not vote, you are allowing other people to make your decision for you. Please take the time to read the instructions and carefully fill out your ballot, so your voice can be heard.
Your ballot must be mailed in time to reach the Judge of Elections by March 12, 2021.
