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.
Bargaining resumed today with LifePath rejecting all of your Union proposals and submitting a series of their retrogressive own demands. Today, LifePath demonstrated they clearly do not appreciate the value that YOU bring to work every day.
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.
