RAPS Poll is now heading for 400!

Dear RAPsters,

The RAPS poll has climbed to over 380 votes so far today and should reach 400 overnight.

The Yes votes have edged up slightly to 77%, with the Unsures the same at 13%, and the No’s slightly lower at 10%.

The number of respondents voting ‘yes or are unsure’ about leaving the APS if nothing improves for Generalists, is now at 90%. Only 10% are saying  a definite No.

We need more votes  to reach our goal of 10% the 11,000 APS Generalists’ votes!

Tell your friends and colleagues to vote NOW – to get their voices heard.
