“My Friends it is solidarity of Labor we want. We do not want to find fault with each other, but to solidify our forces, and say to each other: We must be together: our masters are joined together, and we must do the same thing”.

BARGAINING SURVEY

.

As we all know, the Orange contract for AT&T Mobility, which covers Districts 1, 2-13, 4, 7, and 9 will expire February 11, 2017. To prepare for bargaining, we have put together a bargaining survey to be distributed to your members. The survey is a great way to begin mobilizing your members for bargaining, and is a process we must begin now!

Included here are links to both an online version of the survey, as well as a printable version you may download if you prefer to have your Local complete the survey that way.

.

Printable: http://www.cwa-union.org/sites/default/files/cwa_bargaining_survey_for_2017_mobility.pdf

.

The deadline to fill out the survey is October 21, 2016. If you post the online version on your website for your members and/or email your members the link, the results will be sent in electronically and added to the report. If you choose to use the printed version, we ask that you to tally up the results yourself and send them to your Staff Rep by the deadline.

Verizon 3Q surplus declaration

.

CWA District 1 has notified us that Verizon has declared is a surplus in 30 job classifications in FAA 1-6. This surplus is due to process change and it is the 1st surplus where the "Special EIPP" (Section XIV of the 2016 MOU) will be used.

Under the terms of the Special EIPP:

Each employee may only receive 1 offer per calendar year unless the employee moves to another title or to a different FAA(NY )/ ITA (NE)

For a period of 12 months following an employee leaving the payroll as a result of this offer, the Company cannot permanently force transfer or temporarily transfer employees into the job title in the FAA (NY) / ITA (NE) to which the employee who accepted the Special EIPP was assigned.

Election to leave the Company with an EIPP offer must be submitted by September 21, 2016.

The off payroll date will be October 9, 2016, or possibly a later date, to be selected at the discretion of the Company, no later than April 9, 2017.

When it comes to calling out and breaking down the Republican Party’s calculated “war on the poor and working families,” nobody does it quite like former US Labor Secretary, Robert Reich.

In this powerful video courtesy of MoveOn.org, Reich neatly summarizes the Republican Party’s 7-prongued approach to exacerbating socioeconomic inequality and relegating America’s poor and working families to a life of poverty. Think he’s exaggerating? Watch the 135-second video and you will agree that the ‘War on the poor and working families” isn’t a figment of his imagination, it is real and impacting Americans all across the nation.

Weingarten RIGHTS

If you reasonably believe that discipline or other adverse consequences may result from a meeting with a Company representative, you have a right to Union representation at that meeting. But, you must request it.
