Subject: Report on Delegate Council Meeting
To: ALAA Members

** High Priority **

Last night’s Delegate Council meeting, attended by forty-three people,
adopted the following motions concerning contract negotiations.

First, the DC unanimously voted that the Executive Board (Bargaining
Committee) should continue negotiations on issues including, but not
limited to: (1) maintenance of current paid parental leave; (2)
non-CDD comp time; and (3) salary comparability (see offer, App. 2).

Second, it voted 17-12-2 to meet again next Weds., July 25, following
additional negotiations and upcoming local membership meetings.

Third, the DC unanimously voted to poll the members regarding their
summer vacation schedules.

Not adopted were motions to:  (1) schedule a contract ratification
vote on or before July 30 (failed: 18-15); (2) schedule a contract
ratification vote between Labor Day and September 10 (tabled: by voice
vote); and (3) schedule no contract ratification vote on any contract
proposal that reduces existing parental leave (tabled: 22-7-2).

ALAA members are strongly encouraged to make their voices heard on
these important issues by attending both their local office meetings
and next Wednesday’s DC meeting, 6:30 p.m., at ALAA HQ, and/or by
communicating their views to Union reps.  Again, please RSVP your
attendance at the DC so that sufficient pizza is on hand.
