I知 voting YES on Tentative National Agreement

(The following is an email to National President Dennis R. Pierce from Brother James H. Dixon of Division 62 (Houston, Texas). It is reproduced with permission.)

Dear Brother Pierce:

My thanks to you and your team for the Town Hall Meeting in Houston (October 25) to explain the new agreement proposal being considered.

I arrived opposed to it and departed in support of it.

Thank you for the tireless efforts, nearly all of which I was unaware.
