Contract Action Team

The Contract Action Team (CAT) is a vital link between the Bargaining Team and rank and file members in building. CAT members are responsible for taking information from open negotiations back to members in their buildings, as well as collecting data and stories for the Bargaining Team. Our members’ concerns drive our goals, so it is necessary for the Bargaining Team to hear from you about the issues that matter most.

To find out more about negotiations or to get involved at your building, contact your CAT member.
