What is a Bargaining Team?

Bargaining Teams are now being formed for the upcoming contract negotiations. A Bargaining Team is a committee of union members who are elected to lead your Local’s bargaining campaign. Bargaining Teams work with members to identify issues and develop contract proposals. Bargaining Teams meet with Management to negotiate over contract proposals.

Most importantly, bargaining teams help to build our Contract Action Teams at the workplace to keep all union members informed about the progress of bargaining and to move members into action to win the best contract possible.

What is a Contract Action Team (CAT)?

The member Contract Action Team (CAT) meets throughout negotiations to facilitate communication between the bargaining team and the entire union membership. The CAT makes sure that the bargaining team is hearing from members, and that members understand what’s happening in negotiations. The CAT is also responsible for planning and organizing actions throughout negotiations to build power and pressure the administration to compromise on our proposals. Anyone can volunteer for the CAT.
