Dear Bargaining Unit Member,
The ratification vote will take place on Monday, February 28, 2022 at the Education Association of St. Lucie office at 371 East Midway Road in Ft. Pierce. The Letters of Understanding (LOU’s), summaries, and full text of the contract language are attached. They are also available on our website at www.EASL3616.org, at our office, or on our Facebook page.
Voting will take place ONLY on Monday February 28, 2022. All eligible bargaining unit members may vote between 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. and must bring picture ID. The polls will close at 7:00 p.m. and no one will be allowed to join the voting lines after that time. Anyone in line at 7:00 p.m. will be allowed to vote. Bargaining unit members wishing to vote an absentee ballot, if not able to do so on the date of the ratification, may do so by coming to the Education Association of St. Lucie’s office during the office hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Thursday February 24 and Friday February 25 to cast a ballot. We are planning to conduct the ratification using a drive-thru process, weather permitting, on the day of the ratification vote only.
Ballots cannot be sent to you by mail or interoffice mail.
To be eligible to vote, you must be part of the Education Association of St. Lucie’s CTA bargaining unit which means you are instructional staff (teachers and non-classroom teachers). You do not have to be a member of the union to vote but you must be represented by the CTA bargaining unit. You may not vote if you are a full/part-time sub.
Feel free to contact our office at (772) 464-6430 with any questions.
