What are you looking for?
Not OP, but I'm guessing the whole supplement. For me I want to know if the supplement addresses any of the major complaints about this contract. GWI, starting wage for new hires, 22.4s (I assume this can't really be addressed in supplements), 9.5 language, etc.

This whole contract blackout is quite unsettling. Here we are two weeks out until the contract expires and we still have locals who have yet to produce a contract for their members.

It should be quite interesting trying to get all the ballots mailed out and then returned by the deadline.

Remember, a non-vote is a yes vote.

Contract's been extended already. Got a month or two.

Was it last contract or the year before where allegations swirled about boxes of ballots still sitting at USPS?

Different contract, same tactic.

Rest in peace wooba
How can you call it bad information when you do not know the answer yourself?

common sense tells me. while i do not have the numbers in front of me, my memory says voter turnout has always been notoriously low in all my contracts and we have turned down some in the past. if your logic of a non vote equaling a yes vote was actual, i don't think there would be a contract in the history of mankind that would not have passed on non votes alone. anyways... there's also this from bubbleheads thread

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."
