We have been informed that the EERC approved a Tentative Agreement with EAA for our successor MOU’s at its April 10th meeting. Board President Melissa Popovic, Board Secretary Karen Rodriguez, and Interim ED Michael Davies had addressed the EERC earlier, at that same meeting. Final detailed MOU language is being refined at this time in preparation for the ratification ballot packets. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will mail out ballots to all voluntary dues-payers on April 18th, and ballots will be counted the morning of May 3rd. Beginning April 16th, and continuing each work day through May 1st, your Board of Governors will conduct membership meetings at mid-day (11:30 AM start time, typically) at a different venue each day to present the Tentative Agreement. Detailed summaries will be distributed at the meetings; as always, the exact proposed MOU language will be included in your ratification ballot packet. The schedule of the membership meetings will be posted on the EAA calendar by this Friday afternoon.
