The IBEW & CWA have been working hard with Verizon to reach agreements to protect our members, while at the same time maintaining our network. We have made the following agreements:

Work from Home:

Members who work an inside desk job, who have the required broadband service at their residence, who requests to work at home, have been allowed to do so.  At this time, more than 90% of eligible employees have chosen to work from home. If you have any issues, please call the Union office.

Today, the System Council T6 has agreed to extend the Work at Home and Home Garaging agreement until September 30, 2020.  Both CWA and Mid-Atlantic have also agreed to the extension.  Continuing this option will help keep people safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19 until there is more information about the progress of the Coronavirus Pandemic. 

In this webinar, Steve Raymond, Regional Manager with Scarborough Alliance Group provides important information to help navigate these turbulent times.

This webinar reviews timely information, such as:

  • Understanding Market Downturns
  • Common Investor Mistakes
  • Smart Things to Do During the Downturn
