The IBEW System Council T6 and CWA District 1/IBEW Local 2213 Regional Bargaining Committees reconvened today in Rye, NY. The Union negotiators worked on proposals, reviewed information provided by the Company, and continues to wait for more information that has been previously requested from the company. There were no meetings with the Company today.
We are less are than 3 weeks from expiration and Verizon is hell-bent on destroying tour Unions and its members standards of living. All Locals and members need to continue their mobilization efforts. The bargaining teams need our support. Some union members are reading the company emails about their proposals and not thinking about just how demeaning and egregious Verizon's proposals are for us and our futures. Make no mistake, the company proposals, no matter how they describe them to you are not fair and in no way acceptable. Your best source of information is at union meetings and through our tapes and websites. We will keep you posted of any developments.
