The Bargaining Committee is happy to announce a tentative agreement with CCI for the ILEC bargaining unit. Plan to attend a meeting to review the contract changes and the ratification vote on Tuesday, September 29 at 6:30 PM.
The Bargaining Committee reached Tentative Agreements on proposals related to telephone concession allowances, meal and boot allowances, lay-off allowances and SIPP. Additional meetings to discuss wages and standby are being scheduled.
While progress was made by the Bargaining Team, they continue to remain far apart on other key proposals, which includes wages. CCI continues to submit proposals that will negatively impact the contract.
CCI had few answers again in the latest bargaining session, although the Bargaining Committee reports growing closer to proposed agreements on training, long term disability and supervisors performing bargaining unit work.
