The IBEW System Council T6 and CWA District 1/IBEW Local 2213 Regional Committees met this week in Rye New York.
In our last bargaining report we informed you that after high level discussions between the Union and the Company during the last few weeks the Union bargaining committee gave the Company a proposal last week which addressed both parties’ needs.
This week the Company rejected the Unions proposal and gave another unacceptable proposal to the Union.
We have made meaningful proposals yet the Company has rejected every one of our proposals saying they don’t go far enough to meet their needs. At the same time, almost every proposal the Union has placed on the table has been rejected by the Company.
We are reviewing the Company’s proposal and planning our next steps. In the meantime, we need every member to get engaged. The Company is still not hearing us so it is more important than ever that we take this fight to a new level.
If you are not helping out with mobilization, you should be, less than 1% of the union membership is involved or taking the time to attend union meetings to get informed and ask how can you help. With this type of support, the Company has no concerns with what they are proposing.
