The Comcast Corliss and Nokia contracts were ratified by members! Current LifePath and PIW contracts have been extended. CenturyLink and Thryv are in negotiations. UPDATE: TA has been reached for CenturyLink!
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.
Comcast continues to push givebacks across the bargaining table to weaken our contract. The Union Bargaining Committee countered with proposals to improve shift bid opportunities, training, meal allowances, overtime and many other areas.
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.
This month: Extensions were reached with the Community College of Baltimore and Link Comm. Red Cross members took action this summer for safety at work, and CCI negotiations opened. Comcast Alle-Kiske, MWAA and Nokia negotiations continued.
