Regional Bargaining Report # 55

Friday, March 18, 2016

As bargaining in Philadelphia resumed this week, high level discussions took place in an

attempt to find a way to move negotiations toward a successful resolution. While the sentiment

reflected at this meeting outlined a genuine desire to find acceptable compromises that addresses both

sides’ needs, the reality at the bargaining table was far less optimistic.

The Bargaining Committee passed a Medical Proposal this week which would have saved the

company hundreds of millions of dollars over the life of the agreement and still maintained the current

level of benefits we enjoy today without significant increases in costs to both active and retired

members. While the company acknowledged movement in our proposal, they indicated it was still far

short of their goal to shift significant increases to employees and rejected the proposal outright. They

also rejected our proposal to overhaul the RAMP process and fix the major obstacles that hinder job

mobility within the Verizon footprint.

On Thursday March 17th the Bargaining Committee met with Ken Lain and Kelley Kurtzman

to get a better understanding of the company's call sharing and expanded electronic monitoring

proposal. While the company feels that their need for flexibility is mandatory, the consequences would

absolutely result in a net loss of jobs, consolidation of existing centers and even more work being

farmed out to contractors. To be clear, if you currently work in a call center than the company’s current

proposal would absolutely endanger your future at this company.

We can’t stress enough the importance of everyone being ready to go out on strike on a

moment’s notice. We are at a critical point in these negotiations and if this company refuses to move

more in its proposals than what they are signaling than we will be forced to strike this company. Stay

Strong! Keep Mobilizing! This weekend would be a great opportunity to see CWA at all wireless

stores.
