Fresno Chapter Votes Overwhelmingly for Furloughs

Chapter 309 (Fresno) has released its furlough ratification results to the media: 88% in favor of ratification of the tentative agreement on furloughs.

The Central Valley Business Times quotes the chapter president:

The vote at Fresno State was 231 in favor of ratification and 42 against, says Nancy Kobata, the Fresno Chapter 309 president.

Like other ratification votes, what matters in the end is the result for each statewide bargaining unit, not the totals for individual chapters. Ratification is by bargaining unit, not by chapter.
