I don't think a deal must be made today.

The vote by the PA to "authorize" a disclaimer of interest by January 2nd is not a binding authorization. In fact, it even potentially casts some doubt on the strategy. A disclaimer of interest means the union has chosen to no longer represent its members. Decertification does require a vote of the membership and means the members no longer wish to be represented by the union.
