"Sign the Petition for a New Collective Bargaining Election"
At the time, the other bargaining agent and the UFCT's rival, the Legislative Conference, opposed such an election, preferring the status quo or a new single union as a result of negotiations. As the open letter notes though, talks regarding a possible merger had been fruitless to date. The rival groups would eventually recognize the mutual benefit of a merger, and the two unions negotiated terms in late March 1972. The members of both groups subsequently ratified the merger.
