If a strike vote fails, can another strike vote be held?
There is no legal barrier to holding a second strike vote if the first one fails. For instance, if the Employer attempts to impose a contract after a failed strike vote, this might anger the membership enough to trigger the desire for another strike vote. However, a failed strike vote could dramatically diminish what the Employer will feel it needs to offer to get a settlement. The more reluctant the Employer (and our Bargaining Team) thinks that YUFA members are to take job action, the greater the likelihood of a poor settlement.
