In total 448 active and retired dues paying Local 704 members were emailed a link to vote. We had 225 union members participate in voting (223 votes submitted votes via SurveyMonkey link and 2 manual votes via email). Of those who voted, 91% voted to ratify the tentatively agreed-to contract articles (TAs).

Thank you to the Ratification Committee volunteers for reviewing the TAs, creating outstanding informational documents, hosting the townhall/Q&A session, doing outreach to all of the Local 704 membership, and conducting the online voting. We appreciate all of the work they put into making sure Local 704 was informed and engaged!
