Can a legal fair-yes or no-vote by a union membership be later be rejected, because more then fifty percent of the membership felt they voted wrong the first time? The vote would probably swing the other way the next time.

Most organizations with a voting membership have in their bylaws a clause that allows a defined number or percentage of the members to call for an extraordinary meeting for the specific purpose of voting on a motion stated in this call for the meeting. If the union had this type of clause, it would seem that the original motion passed could be presented for a re-vote. It then would depend on the requirements for calling an extra-ordinary meeting - which may not be easy: signatures of 10%, 20%, ?% of the membership. And there would be a lapse in time, since there would be a minimum notice period before the meeting could be held. This would be significant, if action had already been taken after the first vote.
