Is the union obligated to answer questions prior to a ratification vote or face a DFR

I am a member of the Transport Workers Union and the current TA has many vague statements as part of the final language. The negotiating committee chairman has been sent questions asking for clarification on the language however he has chosen not to answer the questions. The ratification ballots are being sent out Monday and the membership is being asked to vote without fully understanding what the vague contract language means. Can a request be made to the Court, to stop the voting process until the questions are answered? Can a DFR be filed since they have not answered the questions?
