CYCLE OF NEGOTIATIONS
I. DISCOVERING ISSUES OF IMPORTANCE
We do this by asking questions, surveying the membership, Town Hall Meetings, Site Rep Input and ongoing requests for input.
Discerning which issues have the greatest impact. We do this as a committee, with Executive Board, Site Rep Council & CTA Staff input.
II. INITIAL PROPOSAL
The District submits their initial proposal.
III. ONGOING NEGOTIATIONS
We work back and forth, refining, disagreeing, agreeing, negotiating both fine and broad points of the contract. The proposal can be a reworked and resubmitted many times.

After days, weeks, and months, a final contact is agreed upon by both sides.
V. VOTING ON BOTH SIDES
