CWA Local 1122 TAPE message
CWA Local 1122 Wednesday August 13th 10am
CWA District One has notified us that Verizon has declared a surplus in our force adjustment area six (6). The job classifications and the number declared surplus is as follows:
Driver A 1
To alleviate the surplus condition the Company will invoke the Force Adjustment Plan (article 55) of our current collective bargaining agreement. This surplus condition has been determined by the Company to be due to process change. The provisions of the respective Force Adjustment Plan articles 8(b) and 10 will not apply in this case (meaning NO Layoff). If the surplus condition requires the use of the Enhanced Income Protection Plan under step three (3) of the Force Adjustment Plan article 55, EIPP offers will be tendered to those employees in the surplus titles and force adjustment areas involved by Tuesday, August 19th. An employee's election to leave the service of the Company and receive EIPP payments must be in writing and transmitted to the Company by Tuesday, September 2nd. The off the payroll date for those employees who accept this offer will be Sunday, September 21st.
