Your NFB Bargaining Team is pleased to announce that on July 17, 2019 they signed a tentative agreement to finish this round of collective bargaining. The Bargaining Team would like to thank all members for their support during this round of bargaining. We believe we have reached the best deal possible in what has been a challenging round of negotiations.

This agreement must now be ratified by the NFB membership. An electronic vote will be held in order to ratify this agreement.  All regular members in good standing will receive the voting instructions by email. The voting will be open for a period beginning July 17, 2019 and closing at 12:00 pm Eastern Standard Time on July 31, 2019.  Please ensure your membership information is up to date.

It is important that you take the time to review everything prior to voting.

Please review the attached documents:

A Yes vote means: You are accepting all of the changes proposed in the tentative agreement. Those changes will take place at the date of the signing (except as otherwise noted) and the employer will have a period varying between 180 and 560 days to implement them (this includes any retro pay).

A No vote means: You reject the tentative agreement and instruct the NFB Bargaining Team to pursue further negotiations, with a high likelihood of heading to conciliation/strike. 

The Bargaining Team and NFB Executive unanimously recommend the acceptance of this tentative agreement.

In Solidarity,

Your NFB Bargaining Team
