The CWA Local 13000 Bargaining Committee reports:
Your Union committee met with the company by conference call for several bargaining sessions on Wednesday and Thursday to continue working towards a fair contract. One thing is certain, the company JUST DOESN’T GET IT! We provided responses, AGAIN, to the company’s most recent demands to weaken our CBA with proposals that, AGAIN, would help the company AND improve working conditions. Our sessions this week ended with the company passing a new, giveback loaded proposal.
We spent our time this week seeking to create improvements in the areas of better inclement weather language, shift bid opportunities, training improvements, and bereavement leave as well as meal allowances, overtime and scheduled time off. There is much left to do in this fight and your support is the key to our success at the table! Contact your Unit President or Branch Rep for additional information on bargaining and BE READY TO MOBILIZE.
United we bargain, divided we beg!
