The CUPW Ratification Marathon Continues
Mood:  don't ask

It's hard to believe a tentative agreement was reached almost two months ago.

We've now entered the second phase of our unionized journey which is cross-country voting that won't end until Apr/22/04.  Those voting in Frederiction New Brunswick, Val o' Or Quebec, London Ontario, Estevan  Saskatchwan, and Kimberly British Columbia will have to wait until the end of April to find out the results.

It would be easier if a few nights were set aside for electronic townhouse debates followed by mailed ballots to each CUPW member in Canada. Mailed ballots are given out for local elections. Why not ratifications? It's less expensive, time consuming and gets more members participating. However, that would involve changing some processes and constitutional by-laws and both local and national CUPW executives don't like change.

Federal elections are shorter than CUPW ratifications.

While the national and local CUPW management are using their shovels, you can visit the websites of the above scenic cities in Canada.
