If negotiations are going badly, will our negotiators actually use the authority to call a strike? Or will they instead present a bad contract for us to vote on? In theory, now that the negotiators have strike authority, there is now no excuse for them to present a contract with concessions in it. But is that strike vote more of a symbolic gesture? a gesture that they have no intention of following through on? or will they actually call a strike if UPS insists on concessions?
