Regional Bargaining Report
Tuesday, July 14, 2015
IBEW New England, IBEW Local 2213 and CWA District 1 Regional Bargaining Committees met with the Company today at the Rye Town Hilton in Rye, New York.
We met in the morning and afternoon to submit more Union proposals highlighted by a comprehensive proposal on call sharing which would assure all calls would be handled by a CWA or IBEW union member.
Locals are in the process of conducting a Strike authorization Vote. We need to send the Company a strong message that we will do whatever it takes to achieve a fair and just contract.
Don’t forget about our annual summer union meeting tomorrow. The morning meeting will start at 9:00 a.m. with breakfast and a bargaining update to follow. Then at 5:00 p.m. there will be a cookout followed by a bargaining update. Please make every effort to attend one of these meetings in order to hear the facts not the propaganda from the company. If you can’t make one of those times please feel free to stop by the hall and we will be glad to give you an update on bargaining.
