Okay — I’d still love to be able to report that this is at least a three year, locked-in contract (with signing bonuses!?) — but I’ve no independent confirmation of that, as of the moment. With over three-quarters of the members voting in favor of ratification, the contract is final — and binding — upon Merck.

The agreement calls for 3 floating holiday business work days in a calendar year. The union members vote for their preferred days off. The days getting the most votes become the 3 floating holidays for all USW employees.
