Who Negotiates Your Contract?
Updated On: Jan 16, 2014

A representative negotiating committee elected by eligible employees decide what you want in your contract. The Union gives you technical assistance in negotiation.

Are You Eligible?

YES, if you do not hire or fire or effectively recommend same or make policy affecting employees.  The National Labor Relations Board says, “Supervisors are excluded from the National Labor Relations Act.  Whether an individual is a supervisor for purposes of the Act depends on his/her authority over employees and not merely his/her title.”  The list of criteria for determining supervisory status is several pages in length, so if there is any question of your eligibility, the determination, by job function not title, will be made by the NLRB.

What About Strikes?

Over 95% of all contracts are successfully negotiated without strikes (the ones that don’t make the news).

Under no circumstances can the Union ever compel you to support someone else’s strike, or to strike over your own negotiations. Neither Local 153 nor the International has the authority to make or impose such actions on you.  Any decision to strike would be made by the secret ballot vote of a majority of eligible employees.

Should you decide to strike, Local 153’s strike fund, of over one million dollars,  pays $265 per week in strike benefits.
