Testimonials

Hi Harry and the rest of the bargaining team, members who volunteered to help with this years collective bargaining, office staff & to all union representatives,

From the bottom of my heart, I would like to say Thank you, thank you for dedicating your life to helping us get the best collective agreement possible. I know its not over but I believe that these results will open the employers eyes & maybe they will realize, how disrespectful they have been to us union employees. We have been abused by our employer for way to long.

Good luck everyone as I am sure the fight is not over. Keep in mind that you have thousands of members standing by your side. Please stay healthy, strong and make sure you are all eating healthy.

We are praying for the best , fair results ever.

I wish that I could have helped you all more but I assure you Luis and I voted to strike.

One day when I hope to return to work, I hope the work conditions will be better and I can thank you all in person.

Again thank you for keeping us in the loop, and for fighting for us all.

Sincerely

I felt compelled to send an email to let you all know what amazing work you have all done this round of bargaining. The work environment at the board has progressively become worse and the fact that 95% out of so many of our workforce have stood up and said this is not acceptable is the best news. I haven't felt this positive about our work situation in a long time and am looking forward to the change that this vote will bring.

Thanks so much!

What fantastic news about the strike mandate vote!! Thank you for working so tirelessly to reach out to all the the union members so as to get the massive voting turnout, staying at the bargaining table at all hours, working so hard towards the goal of achieving a strong CA, and showing so much dedication and leadership. You are appreciated!!!

Absolutely amazing results and so glad we stood with you as you have all worked so hard for us ! Thank you

Wow great work reaching out to everyone and getting the message out there.

Very proud of you all and appreciate your hard work!! Good luck on Monday.

thank you so much Harry for your dedication and commitment to our members. Thank you for working relentlessly to right the wrongs and misteps of our employer and to protect the membership's future... We are strong together yes, but it takes a true leader to bring people together in solidarity!!... Thank you!!!

I wanted to reach out after the meeting with my sincere thanks to each and every one oh you. I could hear it in all your voices how passionate you all are and how hard today was. I just want you to know you are appreciated and we got your back.
