Build a Fighting NALC – Online Petition in Support of the Open Bargaining Resolution

Build a Fighting NALC is launching an online petition in support of the Open Bargaining resolution. 34 NALC branches and two NALC state associations have passed the Open Bargaining resolution, with more in the process of discussing it in local meetings and state conventions coming up.

We want to go into the National Convention this August in as strong a position as possible to win the Open Bargaining resolution and transform the NALC’s position on contract negotiations. NALC members demand more transparency and openness, and we need a contract campaign that engages and mobilizes the members of our union to build leverage to win the gains we need in higher wages and better working conditions.

Which is why, in addition to the dozens of branches who have passed the resolution, we’re launching this petition to get as many NALC members as possible engaged with the process of transforming our union. Please go to the link below to sign down in support, and share the link with all NALC members who want their voices to be heard. We also have a flyer attached that you can print out, and get all NALC members at your station and branch to sign down in support, so we can go into the convention with thousands of signatures of NALC members who demand Open Bargaining.

 Please print and post the flyer on all your Union bulletin Boards: Flyer with QR Code to Petition

We’re building real momentum for the Open Bargaining resolution, and have started a movement to transform our union, a movement to Build a Fighting NALC!

Register here for the next Build a Fighting NALC Zoom meeting on Sunday, June 2 at Noon central (10am pacific, 1pm eastern):

I’ll be leaving this weekend for a long planned trip with my girlfriend, and will be back May 26. If you have any questions about the petition or anything else, please reach out to Rob Darakjian, NALC member in Tri Valley, CA Branch 2902, and part of the Build a Fighting NALC movement.
