  • Regional Bargaining Report #16
    Posted On: Jul 29, 2015

    Regional Bargaining Report

    IBEW System Council T6 MA & RI,

    CWA District 1 NY/NE

    Monday, July 28, 2015 
     

    The IBEW system Council T6 Business Managers, CWA District 1, and IBEW NY Regional Bargaining Committee met with the Company today on an informal basis yesterday to continue discussion on issues involving Flexibility.  As the clock keeps ticking toward expiration, the Company will not even engage in honest, informal discussions around difficult issues that both parties need addressed even though we have tried to engage them in these discussions.

    While the unions are still reviewing some of the information provided by the company on their proposals, the unions are still waiting for much more information to assess and cost out their proposals and the effect on our members.  This has always been a long process, however this time around, there seems to be no sense of urgency on the company’s part to supply the information needed and to have discussions on a contract.  The company just wants what they want and are not interested in what the union members need.  So, therefore, it is the company that has been deliberately bogging down the negotiation process and this should not be a surprise to anyone.  In case you don’t know, this is not really a good company to work for. Verizon has never been good to their employees, and it is because we are unionized that they have aggressively moved work and jobs out-of-state and overseas, and purposely created chaos with center consolidations to try to force people to quit.  So, they can advertise all they want on how great they are, and we can get these letters and e-mails from Verizon’s empty suits like Marc Reed and Bob Mudge telling us how fair their proposals are, but we know the truth: they don’t want a union and do not care about their employees and their customers.  What they fail to mention is the flexibility they seek is eliminating job security and contracting more work out to eliminate more jobs but fail to mention this to you and the public…. They also fail to mention just how bad their healthcare and retirement proposals really are.

    It is the Company that needs to get serious and remove their retrogressive demands and start bargaining with your Union. 

    With only 3 days left until the expiration of our contract it is clear that there is no urgency on the part of the Company to reach an agreement. Verizon has no regard for our members who built this Company and made this Company profitable.

    Now more than ever we need to mobilize!
