Verizon Bargaining Report #19

On Monday your Bargaining Committee met again with the Company to go over the

Healthcare proposal. We are still far apart on the premiums and out of pocket maximum. Also we

our still at odds over the COPE deduction. We still have several proposals the Company still hasn’t

addressed along with outstanding information requests they need to provide.

1) The Pension

2) Forced Adjustment Language

3) General Wage Increase

4) Scheduling

These are just a few of the items. We are asking that you reach out to your supervisor, ask them

if there has been an agreement reached and tell them you want a fair and just contract. Your

committee is here to bargain for the employees of this local. We will not be held hostage for what

they didn’t get in the East. Nor will we set precedent on retrogression, or any language that will be

used for future bargaining in other Districts.


Standing Strong,


Your CWA Bargaining Committee
