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!!

July 23, 2019

Today the bargaining team gathered data and information necessary to respond to the company's open proposals.  We are scheduled to meet with the company later this afternoon. We expect to receive another nauseating healthcare proposal.  Thank You to the Mississippi locals for dinner yesterday! Continue your mobilization efforts.

We met with the company today and countered their atrocious benefits proposal.  We are still working to keep our members who serve in the armed forces pay protected when serving this great country. It is very discouraging to have to argue this point, and have the company leverage this issue against some of the other improvements we are seeking. MOBILIZE. MOBILIZE. MOBILIZE.

Today your bargaining team had discussions with the company around Wire Technician and call center employees' work-life balance, changes to the surplus process in order to gain greater job security in the event of further force reductions, and several other issues brought to the team through the bargaining task force. Continue your mobilization efforts. They are noticed.  Thanks to Locals 3603, 3607, and 3616 for the meal provided today.

Your Utility Operations Bargaining Team met with the company today and received some proposals that we will have further discussion on. CWA responded by passing multiple proposals that addressed your main concerns regarding Forced OT, Days Off, Safety, Job Security, etc. in an effort to improve our quality of life. Thank You so much Local 3205 Covington GA. for the excellent care package.

Over the last two days, the team has discussed proposed changes to improve the surplus process, improve work rules for all our members, and a comprehensive benefits proposal.  We are working diligently to achieve a fair contract prior to expiration.  Mobilize, Mobilize, Mobilize.

Today your bargaining committee met in caucus to formulate a counter to the company’s catastrophic benefits proposal.  It is far from what we consider a fair proposal. We will do our best to move the company to where we need to be, to achieve a good contract for the membership.  Thanks to Local 3517 for the care package.  Keep up the mobilization and remember: Blue Monday, White Wednesday, Red/Orange Thursday, and Black Friday.
