AFSCME 3090 passes ratification of lifetime contribution increases by only 64 votes.
1000 members claim they did not receive ballots, or their vote WAS NOT COUNTED.
With less then a 5% difference in the results this amount should not be enough to overturn the previous results in which members overwhelmingly rejected the deal but AFSCME 3090 plans to go ahead with the second results regardless of the members wishes.
This should be a lesson to every member on how the unions in the City of Los Angeles operate. Concerned with only themselves and their dues money. Seeking out the weakest members to push an agenda that has been predetermined by the powers that be.
AFSCME 3090 Should at once schedule a new Election run by an independent third party with no biased propaganda material included and including a copy of the letter of agreement with the voting material not a summary or a highlight of the deal but the actual contract so members can see just how many concessions are included.
AFSCME 3090 Failed to print a single opinion of the more then 1000 members who submitted reasons they were voting NO.
AFSCME 3090 Disenfranchised voters by physically locking out members from turning in ballots, posting only Vote Yes propaganda, subjecting the members to unrelated hate mongering speeches from SEIU 721 representatives, engaged in abusive and intimidating workplace meetings, made false and misleading claims to members regarding the proposed contract amendment and failed the membership as a whole.
Actions displayed by AFSCME 3090 personnel have led to a recall campaign by the members seeking new leadership who will fight the onslaught of concessions and back room deals with a Mayor of questionable integrity as well as possible challenges to the election through the Los Angeles Employee Relations Board.
When will it end? When you take a stand and demand better!
