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!!

June 17, 2019

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.

Today we met again in Sub Committees.  We had immense discussions about the surplus and the associated road blocks.  We are working to gain greater job security, and as many options as possible for all members in a surplus. Keep mobilizing.

We continued meeting in subcommittees today. The subcommittees are discussing solutions to the issues raised by the membership.  There are numerous issues being addressed and we are looking at innovative approaches to reach solutions that our members expect.  Mobilize!!

The bargaining team met in various subcommittees throughout the day today. Subcommittees provide the parties a format to advance negotiations by discussing open proposals, related to common groups of employees, in an attempt to close the gap between our initial positions. We are diligently working to get you the contract you deserve. Thank You to the Alabama locals for the gift. Mobilize! Mobilize! Mobilize!
