Dear Co-workersWe wanted to email everyone with an update on bargaining.When we started negotiations with VZW, we really thought, and hoped, that the company would want to listen to our concerns and be reasonable. We proposed improvements to our compensation and a fair procedure to ensure job security. This past Saturday, over 8000 CWA and IBEW members rallied in front of VZ headquarters at 140 West Street. It was an amazing show of force. Bianca from Brooklyn and Mike from Everett spoke, and the crowd went wild in support. The solidarity and support shown to us by our union brothers and sisters has been amazing.
Here is a brief video of Bianca’s speech. We think you will enjoy watching.
