Bargaining Update

As you already know, CWAIBEWand  Verizon began meeting for a two-week period to attempt to negotiate the terms of a possible extension to the collective bargaining agreements that are set to expire in August 2019.   We have agreed with the Company to extend the negotiations for a few additional days after the holiday.  Meetings are expected to resume in the middle of next week. 

We will provide additional updates as appropriate.

Hope you all have a happy and safe holiday.

Bargaining Update

May 27, 2016

We have reached an Agreement in Principal with the company. The details of the agreement will be made available upon finalization of contract language on several issues, including the return to work agreement. These details should be available on Saturday May 28. We will be scheduling ratification meetings across the state where you may come to ask questions, be informed, and vote on the contract. This agreement was not given to us. We fought hard for this in the streets, in the public, in the media, and in our neighborhoods. We thank all who stood with us and donated their time, food, money and support. Local businesses and individuals did an extraordinary job. Remember these folks and please patronize these businesses and remember the ones who looked the other way. Make smart choices.

The Officers and Executive Board would like to thank our members who stood tall in their beliefs and acted with conviction. The rallies, marches, picnics, support of families,  and numerous other acts of kindness and brotherhood were remarkable. This was not an easy fight. It was tough….and Youdug inWe know how much you sacrificed and the struggle you went through. Our Chief Stewards, stewards, picket captains;members and retirees are the very best. Thank you for the inspiration YOU provided to us. We are Union and we are one day stronger than whave tbe! Let’s build on this and move forward as one. Attend your general membership meetings every month. Get involved in what is going on at work. Don’t let this fight be for nothing.make it count and move forward together.

Thank you again for your hard work, dedication and faith in the process and the team. We look forward to seeing you all at the upcoming ratification meetings. Enjoy the Memorial Day weekend. Remember to thank a veteran and their family for their sacrifice, service and dedication. 

In Unity,

Your Officers and Executive Board
