Half....

My Senior Picture
What are the chances that half the membership votes on this proposed contract....

....and if the turnout is less than 50%, will the IBT have the stones to eventually enact this language in the IBT Constitution?

Article 12 - Section 2(d) reads:

"Results of ratification or rejection
votes with respect to master agreements shall be determined
by all involved voting members on a cumulative
basis of all votes cast as follows:

(1) If at least one half of the members eligible to vote
cast valid ballots then a cumulative majority of
those voting in favor of the final offer shall result
in acceptance of such offer; and a cumulative majority
of those voting against acceptance of the final
offer shall authorize a strike without any additional
vote being necessary for such strike
authorization. A tie vote shall be resolved as provided
in Section 1(b)(l) of this Article.

(2) If less than half of the eligible members cast valid
ballots, then a two-thirds (2/3) vote of those voting
shall be required to reject such final offer and to
authorize a strike. The failure of such membership
to reject the final offer and to authorize a strike as
herein provided shall require the negotiating committee
to accept such final offer or such additional
provisions as can be negotiated by it."


Buckle up people, I predict that we are in for a wild ride.

Yes I could see them doing it. They know we won't decertify and they also know that they're gone after this election. Nothing to lose for them.

I could see at least 50% voting this contract. I could see the companies continuous harassment of employees having a big role in members giving them a big :censored2: by voting.

They would have to.

You just can't pick and choose what parts of the IBT Constitution to apply.
