Bargaining Reports

Bargaining Update 1-15-16

The Bargaining team worked diligently over the last several weeks on a comprehensive proposal which would address company concerns yet meet the needs of our members. This afternoon your  bargaining team presented the company with a package including health care benefit modifications, wage increases and pension improvements. We will continue to bargain for a fair and equitable contract.

The company will review the Union’s proposal. No dates for further discussion have been set at this time. We thank you for your continued support and patience throughout these negotiations.

We remind the company that our members are the reason for the successes which Verizon reaps the rewards.

Your Bargaining Committee reminds you……..Work Safe-Be Strong- Stay United
