Although we presented proposals and counter proposals to cover the demands of our membership and maintain the benefits acquired during the struggles and efforts of our members,  the Company rejected every one of our proposals and presented another outrageous, exasperating and derogatory package of proposals that still aims to snatch and degrade the benefits already protected by the previous agreements. Let's continue demonstrating to the Company that the LOCAL 3010 DOES NOT SURRENDER!

February 20, 2019 — News


Our proposal aims to make justice to our members and follows the hundred of suggestions our members submitted.  We are hopeful that the Company will understand our concerns and that we can move forward on this new benefit package.  At the same time, the Company presented the most injurious, aggravating and offensive Package Proposal.  Part of that “package proposal”, aims to decrease our benefits including vacation, overtime and others

Although we continue to wait for an abundant amount of requested information, the Company has progressed slowly and has only provided some of that information, thanks to the GREAT MOBILIZATION that our members have made. The Union has proved our willingness to negotiate a contract on time and fair for our membership. 

February 18, 2019 — News


Even as we continue to wait for information that we have requested from the Company and that is vital to represent adequately to our membership, we have proved our willingness to have an on time agreement that is fair for our members by submitting all our remaining proposals except a Benefits Proposal due to a lack of information from the Company that keeps dragging their feet.

CWA-DEXYP BARGAINING UPDATE DAY #12 9:00am - 8:00 pm 11/14-15th 2018

The Company grew frustrated and indicated they are seeking a contract this week. Two thoughts, District 3 has only been bargaining for less than three weeks collectively. 2nd CWA again expressed receiving incorrect data was disrespectful and intentional. There is no way CWA would/could bargain without the correct data. The company presented their Last best Offer for full settlement. We are still so far apart on accepting this offer. All of their proposals are retrogressive.

Your Bargaining Team reconvened today with a full agenda aimed at getting an understanding from the company on their stance on the following items: Seniority, Termination pay, Vacation, PPT, Sick Leave, Pension, Average Pay, Sales Drive Comp plan just to name a few. The company explained their position on all of the above-listed items which were not a great dialogue on the actual concept of bargaining. “Bargaining in good faith approach.”

DEX/YP Bargaining Update # 10

On 10/25/2018 bargaining team had a conference call to review the new data that was provided to us. During out last in-person session, the company, submitted wrong data to CWA for us to examine. This quite troubles some. This has been the constant theme with DEX/YP. This was a very brief call, our Bargaining team voiced their concerns about the inaccurate data and suggested it appears intentionally. and told them we are not reconvening until the company’s data is accurate.

Contract extension for DEX/YP

CWA District 3 has agreed to extend the current YP contract that is set to expire on 8/11/2018 to September 10, 2018 @ 5pm. This is a 30 day extension. All current provision in the contract remain intact. An extension means we still time to mobilize and organize non-members. In the past few weeks, we have received some membership cards from longtime non-members. Please I urge every local to make a concerted effort to sign up non-members.
