New Contract Ratified!

IBEW Local 827 members in New Jersey and Pennsylvania have overwhelmingly voted to ratify the new Verizon NJ, Comptroller and Accounting, Verizon PA and Verizon Connected Solutions contract that was negotiated following a historic 45-day strike by nearly 40,000 workers.  The ratification votes were conducted throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania at unit membership meetings, unit offices and work locations between June 7 and June 16, 2016.  A count of the ratification votes was conducted today by unit election personnel at IBEW Local 827 headquarters under the supervision of Alternate Statewide Election Chairperson Sean Cocliff.

Your Officers and Executive Board thank our members for their unwavering support, perseverance, and unity with our CWA brothers and sisters. This was a victory for the middle class!
