Tentative Agreement What Does That Mean
You can pick up a copy of the preliminary agreement at the ratification meeting in your area. We do not provide the memorandum before the ratification sessions. Experience has taught us that many members who have the opportunity to see the agreement at an early stage do not participate in meetings. Distribution is done at meetings to ensure that our members have the opportunity to review the provisional agreement, ask questions and vote. This will also help ensure maximum member participation in these meetings so that members can make an informed decision. Some of these changes are difficult to understand, so union representatives make sure you get accurate and complete information about the provisional agreement so you can make an informed decision. Your negotiating committee has worked hard since negotiations began in February 2015 to reach the best possible agreement.
