    What happened to article 44? Where is it? Why is that missing from the T.A.?

    This has to do with over 70 lbs packages. Where did this language go? Did they agree to increase the weight again?

    Only the Articles that get any type of language change are in the tentative agreement. That means there is no change and that Article is the same as in the last contract.

    Thank you for clarifying what TOS already knows. Apparently the anger over the TA has distorted brain activity in someone who normally has intriguing posts.

    That's.... pretty generous.

    I would describe them.... a little different than that.

    Is it true UW offers a 3 credit course in beer pong?

    Article 44 deals with over 70 pound handling and it isnt printed in the T.A. The agreement goes from article 43 to article 45. Someone said that if it wasnt changed it isnt in there, thats just NOT true. The entire agreement must be posted. All articles that have no changes in them are left alone, all language that changes HAS to have lines through words to indicate those changes.

    The article missing is suspicious at best. Did the Union agree to increase the weight of packages in the system?

    WIll this article appear later with modified language that we didnt get to see before voting on it? Was there a "tabled" agreement to leave it out until after ratification then insert it back into the contract?

    Article 44 is important, because it establishes weights and handling of heavy packages.

    Rather than making jokes, better rethink this issue.

    You're kidding right? I mean you're just having a good old time, right?

    Count the number of articles that aren't in the TA. Where's Art 1, 2 or 3. How about 5, maybe the Union agreed to outhouses and "hid" 5 from watchful eyes. And 10's been secretly changed to allow UPS to flog anyone at anytime.
    Art 13 now requires pkg drivers to carry passengers between bus stops, (part of ObamaCare).

    I thought you said you've been on negotiating committees? How don't you know only articles that change are listed in a TA. Your anger at this is out of control as your once logical posts are now filled with inaccuracies and BS. Get a grip!

    You'll get the "entire agreement" as a ballot, just as it's always been.

    I read somewhere that beer pong was one of the most unhealthy games to play. I mentioned this to my son and he said they have changed the way the game is played. Rather than pouring beer in to the cups and then drinking from the one the ball lands in they drink from their own beers.
