Regional Bargaining Report # 8
July 2, 2015
CWA DISTRICT 1 NY/NE
CWA District 1 Regional Bargaining Committee met with the Company today at the Rye Town Hilton in Rye, NY.
Discussion centered on their proposal to the Force Adjustment Plan (FAP). The proposed changes to the FAP could result in the following, with little or no regard to seniority:
· Closing of work locations/centers
· Reduce the number of job vacancies to surplus employees.
· IPP offers
· Forced Transfers throughout the State.
The proposal also weakens the Union’s ability to return contracted work back to the bargaining unit.
Bargaining will resume on Tuesday July 7, 2015.
We need every member to make plans to attend the July 25th, 2015 rally at Verizon Headquarters at 140 West Street in NY City. The Rally will begin at 11 AM.
IT’S TIME TO GET ANGRY!
IT’S TIME TO GET INVOLVED!
IT’S TIME TO FIGHT BACK!
WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS COMPANY TO GUT OUR JOB SECURITY PROVISIONS!
