    Regional Bargaining Report   #1

    Monday June 22, 2015

    The IBEW System Council representing MA & RI, CWA Districts 1, 2-13 as well as IBEW New York (NY), and New Jersey (NJ) opened negotiations with Verizon today.  CWA District 1 and IBEW NY and NE are negotiating for new contracts at the Rye Town Hilton in Westchester County. CWA Districts 2-13 as well as IBEW NJ are negotiating for new contracts in Philadelphia.

    Myles Calvey System Council T6 Chairman and Dennis Trainor, Vice President District 1 gave opening statements to the Company at the Regional Bargaining table in NY.  Chairman Calvey spoke of the lack of respect by the Company in dealing with the Union in past negotiations.  He made it clear that our issues would be dealt with in this round of bargaining. Vice President Trainor closed his statement by stating, We are united in our commitment to grow with Verizon. The Company cannot keep claiming surplus after surplus while hiring more contractors or moving our work. It is not fair to our members and your employees to tell them there are too many of them but yet you need contractors to do their work.

    We are united in our commitment to fight for fairness – we are the foundation upon which the success of Verizon rests.  We have helped to boost the company’s earnings and productivity even through a global recession.  It is now our turn to share equitably in that growth.

    When workers at Verizon improve their living standards through collective bargaining, all of our communities also benefit.

    When IBEW and CWA members succeed at the bargaining table and we secure a better standard of living for our members, we help to boost the entire U.S. economy.

    Verizon- it is time to stop the greed. Enough of the givebacks. It is time to negotiate a contract that is fair to your employees, one that protects good union jobs and that gives our membership the opportunity to grow with the company.

    Verizon- it’s time to set the right priorities in these negotiations. This means meeting its responsibilities to employees, as well as investors, executives and consumers.”

    After opening statements, Verizon gave the Unions an insulting and retrogressive comprehensive proposal. This proposal looks to wipe away many years of blood, sweat and tears of this membership. Attacking pensions, 401K, disability, movement of work and doubling the cost of healthcare for our members and retirees. These are just some of the disgusting highlights. The Regional Bargaining Committee has adjourned for today and will resume tomorrow to review the Company’s proposal.

    The Regional Bargaining Committee attended a rally tonight at the Rye Town Hilton, which was hosted by CWA Local 1103. The rally was a huge success and was attended by hundreds of CWA and IBEW members from New York State and New England.

    The time is now……You need to mobilize and show Verizon that you are ready to stand up for your rights and will accept nothing but a fair contract. A contract that will protect our families and take us into the future.

    Hang tough, we have only just begun!!!!!!!!!!
