If the union had the best interests of its members at heart, they'd take out any language about how many people vote and simply leave it as a majority rules vote. What will happen now nationally is the next contract, even less people will vote because they have been told, for better or worse, that their vote does not count, even when they are a majority. Those that care, vote. That should be who the Union cares about, and builds policy around. I don't care if 100 people vote nationally...their majority decision should be what rules. But that would preclude all the non-voting part timers from performing as expected by UPS, and now likewise...the Teamsters.
