Article 1 Section 3 (new) If a tentative National Master Agreement or the Employers's Final Offer is voted on a national basis and is ratified, no bargaining unit employee will be allowed to strike in connection with the rejection of a Supplement, Rider, or Addendum to the National Master Agreement and the Union shall not take any action to cause bargaining unit employees to violate Article 9, Section 1. This proposal takes away your right to vote on and/or reject your Local or Western (regional) contract. One vote instead of three. The Company could put a horrible offer on the table for the local and Western contracts then focus on the National and if it passes we are stuck with inferior local and Western contracts. The Local, Western, and National Contracts are three separate and distinct documents and each contract contains the language addressing specific items unique to, and found in, only that contract. Therefore, we absolutely must have the right to vote on and accept or reject each one. The Teamsters Union decides what is a Final Offer pursuant to Article 12, Sec 2, ss E, of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Constitution. The Company, any Company, does not decide or tell us what offer is Final.
