Since the announcement of the CT Group, we’ve encouraged all impacted members to submit their membership cards as soon as possible. We are pleased to report that we have received more than 2,000 cards (77% of our goal) since that time.

The sooner ACFO-ACAF has cards signed by the majority of impacted employees, the sooner we should be certified as the bargaining agent for the CT Group and start negotiating better pay rates, classification standards, qualification standards and career mobility. With more than 2,000 cards submitted, we are well on our way to certification but we’re not there just yet.

We want to thank those of you who have submitted cards and encouraged your colleagues to do so as well. If you haven’t yet submitted your membership card in support of ACFO-ACAF as your bargaining agent, there’s still time. If you have, please encourage your colleagues to do the same
