The Company seems to have no sense of urgency to reach an agreement at the Utility Operations table. It appears as though they may be protracting the process because of their lack of movement at the Main Table for the Southeast contract.
To date we have reached tentative agreements on five proposals. The Company has rejected twelve Union proposals and are currently considering approximately fifteen others, including counter proposals. The remaining proposals include relief from excessive overtime, safety and health issues, employment security, benefit plan improvements, reduction in discipline entry time limits, and illness day payment.
Please take every precaution to work safe and be safe, whether performing your job duties or walking an informational picket line. CWA really cares about our Members’ safety.
Work Safe! Stay Strong! Keep Mobilizing!
IT’S OUR TURN!!!
