    When does contract take effect? I had heard that if it does pass, and I hope it doesn't, the contract will take effect Jan 1, 2008. Does that mean we will get our paltry raise of .35 at that time. Does it mean the contract will run from January to January as opposed to August to August.
    Finally is this legal that they can take a new contract that will supercede the old contract.

    Actually, once the contract is ratified, it will go into effect.

    Red, we were under the assumption that this "contract" will take effect upon ratification. At least this is how i'm reading it at the top of the first page, and also again in article 45 sect. 1. Am I missing something?

    Man sorry to hear that guys, you have to live with that contract for more than 5 years, now that sounds like torture.
