The System Council T6, CWA District 1/IBEW Local 2213 New York Regional Committees met this week in Rye Town New York,
Over the last month there have been High level discussions between the Union And the Company and this past week the Union negotiating committee worked all week to develop a comprehensive proposal that addressed the union needs. This proposal was presented to the Company late Friday afternoon.
The Union and the Company are scheduled to resume negotiations next week starting on Tuesday January 19th.
Keep in mind that despite the fact we are almost seven months into negotiations, we are very far apart from what the company is still insisting on with their proposals. The union negotiating team remains committed to the membership in bringing back a fair and just contract. We thank you all for your patience during this long process.
We will keep you posted on any further developments.
We must remain vigilant and united as one while the negotiations continue. If you are not helping with mobilization, you should be. We need to send Verizon a message that we remain committed in solidarity and we all want a fair contract or we are willing to strike.
