The contract expired at midnight last night. So, what has changed? Did we lose our protections and benefits? No.
Under the National Labor Relations Act, management can make no changes to your wages, benefits, or working conditions even though the contract expired. The legal obligation to bargain with the union continues. If the membership rejects management's offer, both parties go back to the bargaining table.
If your manager tells you anything different, ask her or him to put it in writing. Bet they won't!

Voting will take place on Monday, March 31, and Tuesday, April 1, from 2:00pm-11:30pm in Auditorium C.
