Regional Bargaining Report
August 26, 2015
CWA District 1/IBEW Local 2213 and IBEW New England Regional Committees spent Tuesday and Wednesday at the Rye Town Hilton in Westchester. On Tuesday, there were further off the record discussions on workplace flexibility.
This morning the Union Committee presented another comprehensive proposal to the Company. The proposal includes continued protection of our job security, pensions, contracting of work, quality and affordable health care and more.
There are no more meetings scheduled for this week and we are attempting to schedule additional bargaining sessions for next week.
This corporation has made $1 billion dollars a month for the last 18 months and has rewarded the CEO with a 16% raise. Meanwhile, at the bargaining table, they want to strip you, your family and our retirees of the wages and benefits you work hard for day in and day out. It’s time to say “enough is enough”!
In September, we will be resorting back to our normal schedule of Union meetings. Please make every effort to attend and bring a sister or brother with you.
