Results of Tentative Agreement Incentive Announced

APWU President Mark Dimondstein has announced the winners of the union’s tentative agreement ratification participation contest. The challenge, intended to encourage participation in the ratification process, offered rewards to locals that were most successful in mobilizing APWU members to vote. 

The contest provided that the top three locals in several categories would be rewarded, with the categories based on the size of the local. The program stipulated that any local that achieved 100 percent participation would be rewarded, and to be eligible, locals must have reached voting levels of at least 50 percent. 

In the category of 1-49 members, four (4) active locals had 100% percent participation, and each will be awarded $200. They are: 

LOCAL Percent Voting 
 Liberal Local 100% 
 Worthington Local 100% 
 West Bend Local 100% 
 Twin Cities Area Local 100% 

In the 500–999-member category, there was only one (1) local eligible for the $2,000 award:

Trenton Metropolitan Area Local 51.1%

Unfortunately, no other category qualifies for an incentive award.
