BM/ST Ricard Jones and Business Representative Andy Williams Explain what Signing a Representation Card means. It allows the union to negotiate a contract for the employees. It does not comment you to paying dues to the union. It is critical to fill out, print out and sign a representation card in order to hold a vote.
