When you get 99.2% in a contract ratification vote, the membership is pretty much okay with the agreement.

Members of the Writers Guild of America have voted overwhelmingly to ratify the new three-year contract that was approved by the union’s leadership this month after a nail-biting round of negotiations with the major Hollywood studios.

The guild said in an announcement Wednesday that of the 3,647 votes cast, there were 3,617 “yes” votes, or 99.2%, versus 30 “no” votes, or less than 1%. There were 9,441 eligible voters. ...

In union Rep school, they teach you never to reveal raw voting numbers. But maybe that only applies to Below-The-Line unions.
