C. PROVISIONAL MEMBERS IN THE HOLE

1. If a provisional member reaches the end of cos six-month trial period and is not then in good standing in labor and/or money (i.e., is in the hole in labor, allowance, VE, PFF or any similar matter), the Membership Team will issue a public statement of the problem account and at the same time will issue a poll. The poll in this case presents a choice between:

EXTEND
EXTEND WITH FEEDBACK (includes possible contract)
ABSTAIN
REJECT

Reasons are required.

If 10% or less of the full members vote either EXTEND WITH FEEDBACK or REJECT, the result is EXTEND.

If 15% or more of the full members vote REJECT, the procedures in paragraph II.B.1.e,f and II.B.2 apply.

If more than 10% of the full members vote either EXTEND WITH FEEDBACK or REJECT and less than 15% vote REJECT, the result is EXTEND WITH FEEDBACK (and possible contract). In either case (EXTEND or EXTEND WITH FEEDBACK), the member’s provisional status is extended for three months (or for the duration of any contract that results). By this time, the financial or labor deficiencies must be corrected. There is no second extension.

2. If the deficiency has been corrected, a full member poll is issued to all full members at the end of the extension. This poll has only these options:

ACCEPT
ACCEPT WITH FEEDBACK (no contract possible)
ABSTAIN
REJECT

3. If the second poll results in 15% or higher REJECT votes, the person is rejected and must leave. Membership ends when the poll results are tallied. At the discretion of the CMT, co may have up to one month to leave the community.

4. If any of cos labor or money balances show a deficit at the end of the three-month extension, cos membership ends at that time and the provisional member must leave the community. At the discretion of the CMT, co may have up one month to leave the community.
