Enhanced EISP Negotiations

Negotiations between the company and the Union continued through the night. The company has the Union's latest proposal and we are waiting for a response. We are working hard to reach an agreement. 

Response to "Verizon Proposes Special Enhanced Incentive Offer" email

As many of you already know, the Union has been presented with a Special Enhanced Incentive Offer by Verizon.  The Officers of Local 827 have been, and continue to be, in negotiations with the company concerning this offer.  Today the company took it upon themselves to send an email to our members highlighting the “good” points of their proposal.  However, as is usually the case, the company failed to include in that email the “bad” and the “ugly” points as well.  The Officers of Local 827 are working hard to address these issues, and to bring the membership a proposal that fairly represents all of our members.  As we continue to negotiate this offer with the company please remember that it is our intention to work towards an agreement that rewards and protects all of you.  Please check back at www.ibew827.com and/or sign up for the IBEW 827 App for updates regarding this matter.
