  •  Actually, no. (0+ / 0-)

    Once a union is certified as a bargaining rep, there will be timeframe to negotiate a new contract...or have one imposed upon you.

    •  And the contract imposed on you (0+ / 0-)

      will not be a major victory for workers' rights, to be sure.

      •  At the very minimum... (0+ / 0-)

        ...it is a contract that cannot be broken without penalty, which is something the average employer has not had to worry about in dealing with unions for some time.  Having a contract and a clear grievance procedure in itself is a marked improvement over being and at will employee, subject to termination/punishment at the sole discretion of the employer.

        A first contract is rarely ever "a major victory" in any sense other than setting the foundation for future negotiations.
