Explanation of "Effects Bargaining"

"Effects Bargaining": The right to bargain over the effects of the company’s decision to close our facility is one of the last safeguards a union contract provides. This will give us a chance to discuss severance, health care, and more. 

We intend to take full advantage of this opportunity, which will require planning and preparation as we get ready for these difficult negotiations with the company. While this may take time, we will be sure to keep you updated as the process unfolds.
