THANKS TO ALL THAT CAME OUT THIS MORNING FOR THE INFORMATIONAL PICKET IN FRONT OF 2315 SALEM RD IN CONYERS! YOUR EFFORTS DO NOT GO UNNOTICED BY THE COMPANY!!

August 2, 2019

Last night, the bargaining team met with the company. The company rejected our comprehensive proposal and presented another draconian proposal, which fell well short of anything we could accept. We have arranged another counter package to present the company today, and we expect a realistic response.
Thanks to Local 3704 for our lunch. Prepare! Mobilize! Engage!

Yesterday, we received a comprehensive package proposal from the company. After giving the package its due consideration, we determined it is far short of what our members deserve.  Last night and this morning, we continued compiling our extensive counter package, which encompasses all the things we are fighting to gain. We will present our counter to the company today and await their response. Thanks to the D3 Mobilization Team for lunch.

Today the company presented another mediocre healthcare proposal. The company continues to say they sincerely want to reach an agreement before expiration, but based on their proposals, it is ostensible they are not serious about getting a deal.  It may be time for the membership to show the company how serious we are about reaching an agreement with improvements for all our members.  Mobilize! Mobilize! Mobilize!

Brothers and Sisters,

 

Today we met with the company and passed several counter proposals to issues we have previously discussed. The company said they hear us loud and clear on our issues, and will take that information back to their team. They have told us that they are working on a package of proposals that will address our needs. We are hopeful, but will not let our guards down or accept anything; without thoroughly reviewing the content and meaning of each item in their proposal package.

Due to events scheduled around 2019 bargaining with AT&T Southeast, we have rescheduled our next District 3 town hall conference call.

We have made some movement towards reaching a tentative agreement.  Thus far, we have agreed to some clean-up language, addressed issues regarding the contractual language on safety in the UFO Addendum, addressed issues for members who serve our country, and a plethora of modifications to the surplus process. We are working hard to close the gap and make improvements for the membership.  Mobilize, Mobilize, Mobilize.
