On Tuesday, your Bargaining Committee met with Verizon late into the evening. With the
expiration of the CBA on Saturday at midnight, your Committee and the Company is committed to
working late nights to reach an agreement before expiration. We are very optimistic that this will
be accomplished . There is still movement that needs to be made on several key issues to get us
where we need to be. We all know that Verizon is a very GREEDY Company and it shows in this
round of bargaining.
