Excerpt from REGULATION 15 Public Service Alliance of Canada
PSAC Regulations – May 2015 Edition
3.11.8 Ratification votes shall be held at meetings conducted for the purpose of explaining the terms of the tentative agreement, except where the isolated nature of the worksite or shift schedules require that special arrangements be made.
3.11.10 When legislation provides a process where a ratification vote on whether or not employees wish to accept a tentative collective agreement is also intended to constitute a strike vote, and all employees in the bargaining unit are entitled to vote in the strike vote, the following procedure shall apply:
a) employees in the bargaining unit who are PSAC members in good standing shall be provided with a ballot that asks whether they accept the tentative agreement or whether they reject it and authorize strike action; and
b) employees in the bargaining unit who are not PSAC members in good standing shall be provided with a ballot that asks whether the employee authorizes or does not authorize strike action.
