The CWA Local 13000 Bargaining Committee reports:
For the 2nd day in a row, the Union committee had a number of conference call bargaining sessions with the company. We were able to tentatively agree on proposals related to telephone concession allowances, meal and boot allowances, lay-off allowances and SIPP. These agreements are all tentative and will remain so until bargaining is completed.
Bargaining has concluded for the week and we are currently scheduling dates to get back to the table next week. We anticipate a difficult fight over the remaining issues on the table including wages and standby and will keep you up to date through these reports as bargaining resumes.
