Thanks go out again to all the many people who worked to make the ratification successful. Thanks to the bargaining table members for all the time and effort they invested in producing the best possible contract for their colleagues. Thanks as well to the staff at the WPEA for all they have done to get us to this point.
The greatest thanks go out to YOU, the membership of the WPEA, for making your voice heard and participating in the voting process. Your participation is vital to the success of this union and your activism is what keeps us strong. Thanks to all and congratulations!
