Recently, Verizon has decided to have technicians returning from light duty, medical restrictions or disability go to a 1 day refresher class for pole climbing (gaffing). If they do not pass the refresher, then they are required to complete the 5 day pole climbing class.
We are disputing that gaffing is a necessary part of your job.
