Been here 4 years so this is my 1st time voting on a contract. If the purposed one is not accepted, do they re negotiate or strike?
Supposed to renegotiate.
I remember in the last contract, one of the results of the no vote renegotiate was part timers had this pool of money that could go to their raises... I think it was an extra 25 cents added to our raise each year, for the first 3 years or so. Unless they decided health care costs got too big, in which case the money would go there instead.If it is voted down, depends of the percentage of no votes as to what happens. Close? Most likely a small tweak here and there, then another vote. A big No vote? The IBT will forced to actually make it better..
All the negotiators get to go on more vacations. Maybe that’s why they have this agreement hoping we vote it down so they can do more golfingBeen here 4 years so this is my 1st time voting on a contract. If the purposed one is not accepted, do they re negotiate or strike?
I think I might just change my vote to yes, because you are so annoying. I'd hate to have to read all this during the next vote, too.All UPS employee's were voting NO on the contract, please stand up for yourselves & be heard. We will not lay down & take it anymore.
If it was only that easy, but it’s not. Ask Z and the other regions that got the contract imposed on them. Also if not enough Teamsters vote it could be ratified by the IBT. If we strike the president could step in and force us to work though it which would significantly weaken the Unions position. The bottom line is a no vote does not guarantee a strike and you could get better or you could get worse. You have to decide if the original contract offer is worth the risk of a strike you area.WILL be renegotiated. It will be renegotiated 3 times before any strike will happen. So you definitely should use at least 2 no votes. You wouldn’t go to a car dealership and take the first offer do you?
Yeah....and what was the thought process when that trapdoor was written into the IBT Constitution?Also if not enough Teamsters vote it could be ratified by the IBT.
