RATIFICATION PROCESS

The NALC at headquarters will schedule a RAP session meeting, more than likely it will

be virtual online due to pandemic

Rap Session is designed for National Officers to explain provisions of tentative agreement

in detail to local officers.

While the RAP session is being planned, headquarters will be printing copies of the

tentative agreement so that every member will receive a copy with their ballot.

Simultaneously ballots will be printed and prepared for the membership.

• Members of the union have a vote to agree or to disagree with this contract.

Should the members vote NO, the parties return to bargaining table and possibly resume

arbitration process.

(5)

RATIFICATION PROCESS CONT.

Should the members ratify and vote yes then the provisions of the new contract are in

affect going forward.

Until that happens the provisions of the old contract continue to be in affect.

If the contract is ratified the local branches begin the process of negotiating the local

agreements

• Currently local negotiations are set for April 29, 2021 – May 28, 2021

Should the members vote NO and an arbitrator decides, there is NO vote and you get

whatever the arbitrator decides, and the timeline would be decided later.
