RE: NEW CONTRACTS BOOKS

We are currently in the process of proof reading the contract. As you know from previous negotiations, this process is not quick. We go through a series of proof readings, with readings by different individuals, to make sure the contract is perfect. Afterwards, the contract goes to the printer and we once again go through a series of proof readings before the contract actually goes to press.



If all goes as planned, the contract books should be out in the later part of October. Until they become available, you may rely on your copies of the tentative agreements, that have since been ratified, along with the previous contract. New language is underlined, language that is struck through has been removed from the contract. It is necessary to read these side by side (the tentative agreements along with the previous contract) to gain a complete understanding of the language.



We are endeavoring to get contracts to the membership as soon as possible. Once they become available, we will distribute them at the bases.



Thank you for your patience and continued support.


In Unity,

Donna A. Metcalfe
