AFS Ratification Kit information 2019

Dear AFS Member,

Your AFS Bargaining Team is pleased to announce that on May 25, 2019 we signed a tentative agreement to complete this round of collective bargaining. The Bargaining Team would like to thank all members for their support.

We believe we have reached the best negotiated deal possible in what has been a challenging round of negotiations. Please find below your ratification information kit in preparation for the ratification vote

Here are the supporting documents outlining our gains:

The Negotiations Team and the Executive of the AFS Group are recommending that members vote yes to secure these wins.

The ratification vote for this tentative agreement is being done by electronic means only. No paper ballots will be provided. All regular members in good standing will be emailed a voting key with instructions. Voting will be held from July 25 to August 1, 2019 (closing at 12 PM EST). Please ensure your membership information is up-to-date.

Please note if you are trying to vote while in the workplace some employers firewalls will not allow it. It is recommended you vote at home.

If you have any questions about the tentative agreement, please ask an AFS Bargaining Team Member.

In solidarity,

The AFS Group Bargaining Team
