STAND UP - FIGHT BACK!

Verizon is still trying to BREAK OUR UNION.  If we stand together, we can and we will prevail. We have over 30,000 active members that work for Verizon.   If we let VZ break us, it will be our fault.    Stick together, get involved, stay informed and don't let them win! 

UNITED WE STAND!

We Are Not On Strike.....Yet

At this time, your bargaining team has decided that working without a contract is the strongest tactic we have. We can decide to strike at any time.

The key issues on the table remain job security, health care, retirement security, contracting out and offshoring of jobs.

There are several reasons why your union leadership has made this decision:

  • The company expects a strike and has been preparing for months. They have spent tens of millions hiring contractors, recruiting scabs, and training managers to climb poles and do the rest of our work. They have spent tens of millions in the media to portray themselves as the good guys. Why should we give them what they expect, and maybe even want? Let them pay the scabs and pay their hotel bills while we work.
  • The company is under significant pressure from elected officials and regulators because of their refusal to build out FiOS or meet the obligations of FiOS franchises they have already been granted. We are going to use this time continuing to build additional public pressure on the company.
  • Staying on the job enables us to send the message to the public and to elected officials that we want to provide the highest quality service to the public.

NO BUSINESS AS USUAL

We will not simply be working as usual. We will be doing informational picketing, rallying, seeking community and political support, pressuring company executives and members of the Board of Directors. In short, we will do all the things we normally do when we are on strike.

  • Negotiations will continue.
  • You will still earn a paycheck.
  • All benefits, including health care and pension, will remain in effect.
  • The grievance procedure continues, but the company has the right to discontinue the arbitration procedure.
  • Discipline can be negotiated at the bargaining table.  You have the right to participate in concerted activity. This means you can mobilize on the job, including filing group grievances, leafleting, informational picketing, etc.

WE ARE NOT ON STRIKE

Statement to Members

After considering all of our options, your leadership has decided not to go on strike at midnight tonight, even though we have not yet reached a contract agreement.

The two sides remain far apart. Despite $18 billion in profits over the last 18 months, and a quarter of a billion in compensation to its top executives over the last five years, this greedy corporation is still insisting on destroying our job security, forcing us to pay thousands of dollars more for our health care, and slashing our retirement security.  They have basically not moved off their opening bargaining position from June 22nd.  It’s a disgrace.

We are disgusted by Verizon’s attitude at the bargaining table.  Their greed knows no bounds.

But we are not going to let our anger allow us to walk into a trap.  It’s quite possible that Verizon is trying to provoke us into a long strike in order to try to break us.  They have spent tens of millions of dollars preparing for a strike, training managers, hiring scabs and contractors, advertising against us on TV and radio.  So your leadership has decided that if and when we strike, it will be on our terms, on our timing.

We know that you are angry.  We are all furious at this greedy company.  Now our job is to turn that anger into pressure on the job and in the community.  We cannot have business as usual.  We will rally, engage in informational picketing, build political and regulatory pressure on the company, follow all the company rules to the letter, never take shortcuts, pressure company executives and members of the Board of Directors.  We will be disciplined, militant and united.  

This was not an easy decision.  But it is the smart decision.  And if and when the time comes, we will strike the company on our terms.

We thank you for your support and your solidarity.  One day longer.  We will win.

VERIZON Mobilization

As our contract nears expiration, Verizon is spending a lot of money on advertising.   If you listen to WMAL for traffic updates, you will hear them spouting what a great company Verizon is to work for.  For those of you who have the pleasure of working for Verizon, there is a very different story.  Any Verizon worker that would like to express their version of what it is like to work for Verizon is encouraged to send an email to your Local at CWA2222@verizon.net.   You need not sign your submission.  The intent is to gather TRUE accounts of working conditions from the real workers and let the general public know what the life of a Verizon worker really looks like.

Regional Bargaining Report #5
June 26, 2015
CWA District 2-13 and NJ CWA District 1 Regional Bargaining Teams met with the Company today. The first thing we did was hand the company a laid off member’s family photo to remind the company that the 42 people they are laying off in PA are actual people with families, not just numbers. When they close their eyes to sleep tonight, we hope that family portrait is ingrained in their minds.
We requested information to the proposal Verizon passed earlier this week. Here is a sample of some of the retrogressive items in the proposal:
JOB SECURITY Remove the protections against layoffs and forced transfers.
COST-OF-LIVING No Cost of Living increase
CORPORATE PROFIT SHARING at risk if not settled by specified dates, no increase with no minimum.
DIFFERENTIALS AND PREMIUM PAY Tour differentials will be paid only for actual hours worked between 9pm and 6am, no Weekend differential, and eliminate all differentials that exceed 10%
OVERTIME only after 40 hours per week, eliminate all overtime payments over 1 ½ per hour, remove all limits/caps on overtime
TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE NOTICE reduce notice given to the Union of any major technological changes
BENEFITS the company proposes major reductions in medical benefits, including introducing deductibles and increased co-pays, co-insurance and premium payments, removing the Union’s ability to negotiate retiree health care benefits
PENSION BENEFITS all accruals will be frozen at 30 years, those with more than 30 years at the time of this change will be frozen at their accrued amount, the “lump sum” Cash Out provision will not be renewed.
401(K) PLAN PROVISIONS AND CHANGES a quarterly administrative fee and a $50 fee for processing new loans, no 401k option for members in the pension plan
DISABILITY BENEFITS eliminate the “Accident” portion of the Sickness/Accident Disability Plan. Limit the use of full paid weeks under mental illness, drug and alcohol condition as well as for musculoskeletal disorders.
SHARING OF CALLS AMONG CENTERS giving the Company additional leeway to route calls out of our bargaining units and to contractors while giving contractors the exclusive handling of all new products and services.
TEMPORARY ASSIGNMENT to any state.
Tuition Assistance Expanding the list of “excluded” studies
ACFC/TABEC COMMITTEES’ drastic reductions
EVALUATIVE OBSERVATIONS remove any restrictions on when evaluative observations may be taken
VACATION SCHEDULING PERCENTAGES reduce the percentage of vacation time
CONTRACTING FIBER FACILITIES TRANSFERS AND RELOCATIONS Allows the Company to use contractors to transfer fiber optic facilities and associated electronics between poles and perform other work current prohibited under the “Broadband” and other Agreements
ELECTRONIC RECORDING OF CALLS no advance notice and extend feedback from 24 hours to 7 days
INCOME SECURITY PLAN Employees will be required to sign a release; offer will be reduced to 15 days
Any one of these items could drastically change your life. Imagine if they all were implemented. Stand united!
Training Opportunity

Verizon Regional Bargaining Report #1 June 22, 2015

Regional Bargaining Report   #1
Monday June 22, 2015

Bargaining with Verizon began today with the Company and the Unions exchanging opening remarks and stating their respective goals for this round of bargaining. CWA District 2-13, CWA District 1 NJ and IBEW NJ are negotiating for new contracts in Philadelphia while CWA District 1 and IBEW NY and NE are negotiating for new contracts at the Rye Town Hilton in Westchester County.
Ed Mooney, Vice President District 2-13 gave an opening statement to the Company at the Regional Bargaining table. Ed closed his statement by stating, “CWA is committed to Verizon’s continued success.  We are united in our commitment to improve our living standards for our families, to provide security for our retirees, and to secure good well –paid union jobs for the future.  We are united in our commitment to fight for fairness – we are the foundation upon which the success of Verizon rests.  We have helped to boost the company’s earnings and productivity even through a global recession.  It is now our turn to share equitably in that growth.
When workers at Verizon improve their living standards through collective bargaining, all of our communities also benefit.
When CWA members succeed at the bargaining table, when we secure a better standard of living for our members, we help to boost the entire U.S. economy.

In IBEW 827 Local President Bob Speers’ opening statement he reminded the company of the achievements reached over the years when Verizon worked with the Unions and not against us. He also committed to work to reach an agreement that is in the best interest of all of our members.
After opening statements, Verizon gave the Unions an insulting and retrogressive comprehensive proposal. The Regional Bargaining Committee has adjourned for today and will resume bargaining tomorrow.

VERIZON DECLARES LTSD
AND SO IT BEGINS......On our 1st day of bargaining,
A little after 12 o'clock noon today, our bargaining chair, Gail Evans received the following e-mail from Verizon Labor Relations: 
From: "Stribling, Thomas J (Tom)" <thomas.j.stribling@verizon.com>
Date: June 22, 2015 at 12:12:01 PM EDT
To: Gail Evans <gevans@cwa-union.org>
Subject: Potomac OT Caps
Gail,

We’ve been accepting volunteers and forcing up to the overtime cap since the week of May 31.  The severe storms over the weekend increased the load to where we are going to lift the overtime caps for all of Maryland copper & FiOS, Northern Virginia copper & FiOS, and Western VA copper per the Overtime Administration LOU under a long term service difficulty.  We’ll continue to monitor DC and the rest of Virginia but at this point we will continue to take all volunteers and work up to the overtime cap.

What this means is that all qualified technicians who work FiOS or copper will be forced up to 12 hours per day up to 6 days in the first week and the company CAN NOT ASSIGN 2 six day weeks back to back per our contract.  The company CAN NOT ASSIGN 7 DAYS in any week.  DOT liscensed drivers are limited to 11 hours driving per day via CDL regulations. 

All members are asked to look out for one another, and to work safely.  It is going to be very hot this week.  Check with your crew mates to ensure they are safe and do not need help in order to finish with in 12 hours. 

If you get "no work assigned to technician" and you work in Chad Thompson's group, you should contact the DRC requesting work.  If after 5 minutes you have no work, contact your foreman,   If after  contacting your foreman you do not have work assigned within 5 minutes, contact Chad on 301 788-4484.  If after contacting Chad you don't have work in 5 minutes, contact Andre Sanders on 410 498-9408. 

Reasonable excuses should be accepted and if denied, please contact your Steward or the Local. 

Heat Stroke, Stress, Exhaustion
Please check out the information regarding Heat Stroke Stress and Exhaustion under the Health and Safety tab at the top of the home page.
