CWA District 1, IBEW Local 2213 and IBEW New England Regional Committees met with the Company today in Rye, NY.
Today the company asked questions about some of the Union’s initial set of proposals, then immediately following, they rejected just about all of the Unions Proposals on Job Security, Pensions and Healthcare.
It is clear that Verizon’s agenda has not changed. The Company is still hell- bent on retrogressive demands regarding Pensions, Healthcare, Job Security, Disability, Work- Family Issues and more.
We need to send a very clear message that this is not acceptable, that we will not be passive as they seek to gut our contract. This is not a Company facing a financial crisis. They are extremely profitable, yet with their proposals, they seek to destroy our future.
Tomorrow, thousands of CWA and IBEW members and retirees will be at the Rally at 11AM at Verizon headquarters at 140 West Street in New York City. Every member should be at his rally, and should bring their families, neighbors and friends. Remember to wear RED!!!
We just about a week away for the expiration of our collective bargaining agreement, we need to mobilize now more than ever!
