Regional Bargaining Report # 38
Friday, October 23, 2015
CWA District 1/IBEW Local 2213 and IBEW New England Regional Committees met this week at the Rye Town Hilton in Westchester.
There is no progress to report on any of the major issues. The Company is still proposing to shifts thousands of dollars of healthcare costs onto our members, diminish our retirement benefits, they want the ability to contract out call center work and eliminate our Job Security.
All this while Verizon has just announced $4.2 billion in profits last quarter.
Their GREED has no boundaries!
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.
IT’S TIME TO FIGHT BACK!
NOW MORE THAN EVER WE NEED TO MOBILIZE!
Mobilize! Mobilize! Mobilize!
