I’m going by memory here from our last ratification vote, so please be kind if procedures have changed.
When you arrive at the Ontario Room at the Ambassador Hotel, you will approach the booth for OPSEU Local 468. OPSEU staff and/or volunteers will check to make sure your name is on the list for Local 468.
You will then be given two ballots: 1 ballot to vote on the Unified portion of the Tentative Agreement, 1 ballot to vote on the Central portion of the Tentative Agreement. You will then go to the voting booth, cast your ballots, and return the ballots to the appropriate ballot box.
If you are currently working at an OPSEU Local 468 worksite/office on a 5/29 assignment or other short-term assignment, you may need to go to your home position OPSEU Local poll to obtain your ballots. If you have questions, OPSEU staff on site will be happy to help you.
If your name does not appear on the OPSEU Local 468 list but it really really should, then blame Jim because he didn’t catch that you moved to OPSEU Local 468. OPSEU staff on site can advise you which poll in the room to see in order to obtain your ballots and vote.
The whole process rarely takes a long time. At the last tentative agreement ratification vote, most members were in and out in 5 minutes or less. No one really needed to take their jackets off unless they wanted to say hello for a bit.
