At the T&T Conference, 200 delegates and CWA leaders showed solidarity with Nokia workers fighting to secure a fair contract. Local 13000 is gearing up for mobilization at Comcast Corliss, and Local 13101 reached a TA in Kent County!
On Friday evening, the CWA Local 13101 Bargaining Committee reached a Tentative Agreement with Kent County. The Agreement includes a 3-year CBA, as well as enhancements to attendance awards, work attire, overtime calculation, and Callout Pay.
Some progress has been made at the bargaining table, but CWA Local 13000 Bargaining Team reports there are still many issues to discuss. Local 13000 Reps will be reaching out over the next week to share upcoming mobilization activities.
We extend our deepest sympathies to the family and co-workers of Kent County’s Attorney and Chief Negotiator, William (Bill) W. Pepper Sr. who passed away unexpectedly. Bargaining is suspended temporarily.
Wages were the main topic of discussions in the latest bargaining session with Comcast. Your Bargaining Team appreciates the crew who joined the session to show support and solidarity by sharing stories.
Kent County is calling for concessions as Local 13101 negotiates a successor agreement. Concessions are of absolutely no interest to your bargaining council! Our members' support and work ethic is the Team's real strength at the bargaining table.
During this month's negotiations, the Bargaining Committee pursued safe staffing efforts and reviewed new job description proposals. The Union is committed to protecting our members' safe and ethical standards.
Negotiations have been hard fought as the Bargaining Committee pushes for the improvements members deserve. Comcast has shown reluctance to respond to economic proposals, but the Union is standing firm for answers.
Look for stewards and officers soliciting your input regarding recent PIW proposals. The Bargaining Committee is negotiating a fair contract to address as many as your needs as possible and your show of support is crucial!
