Tip Tuesday: Why Are Agreements Rejected?
April 26, 2022

Negotiating and getting collective bargaining agreements ratified is not easy in the current labor environment.

Why are agreements rejected?

  • Employee expectations cannot be met; it’s just too expensive and not in line with the market
  • The greater the Company’s profitability, the higher the expectations
  • Employees don’t trust management or their labor leadership in securing the best deal possible
  • No downside risk in rejecting a contract
  • Increased use of the internet by Union dissidents, or just members spreading disinformation
  • The union’s negotiating committee is not unanimous in their support of the tentative agreement, and some committee members want the agreement voted down
  • Union negotiators don’t have experience in getting agreements ratified
