Call for Contract Proposals

In preparation for the 2016 Collective Bargaining, we would like to call for contract proposals.

This year, proposals will be submitted using an online form. Contract proposals can only be submitted by an authorized Branch Executive after the proposal is passed at a Branch meeting.

The deadline for proposals is 12:00 ET Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

From the Policy Book section V: Collective Bargaining

1.2 Branch/Facility Committees

Each Branch/Facility shall form a standing committee to prepare contract proposals.

This committee will present proposals for discussion at a Branch/Facility meeting or a Branch Council meeting to determine their validity and rank them in order of priority.

These proposals will be forwarded to the Contract Committee in sufficient time to be useful. (Conv. 1987)

4.4 Contract Proposals

For the purposes of contract proposals, a Branch may establish a policy permitting the Branch Council meeting to act in the place of a Branch meeting. (Fall 1986)

Please do not hesitate to contact the National Executive with any questions or email us at

In Solidarity,

Peter Duffey                                        Doug Best
President                                             Executive Vice President
