Regional Bargaining Report #44

CWA District 1/IBEW Local 2213 and IBEW New England Regional Committees met this week at the Rye Town Hilton in Westchester. After high level discussions between the Union and the Company during the last few weeks the Union bargaining committee worked all week to develop a proposal that addressed both parties' needs which we presented to the Company late Friday afternoon.
The Union and the Company are scheduled to meet again on Tuesday January 19, 2016.
We are ready to do whatever it takes to get a fair contract!
Members should continue to send the message to Verizon that their retrogressive demands are not acceptable. Do this by participating in Mobilization actions. Whether you are a current employee or a retiree, we need you to be involved.
It's time for every member and every retiree to pledge to spend at least 2 hours per week participating in off the job mobilization activities.
Call your local or talk to your steward and find out what you can do to help.
