Dear Member,

We are pleased to report that the Interactive Media Agreement Strike Authorization Referendum was a resounding success with 96.52% of members voting in favor of the referendum. Voting on the referendum closed yesterday, Tuesday, Oct. 6, and ballots were tabulated by Integrity Voting Systems.

It is important to note that the referendum result does not mean that members are on strike, rather, it gives the National Board the authority to declare a strike.  A 75% “yes" vote was required to give the National Board that authority.
