CWA Local 13101 11-6-19 hotline update;
Verizon bargaining unit;
There was a recent arbitration decision found in Verizon’s favor regarding the last section of 5G placement. The arbitrator ruled that the work can be given to contractors and that even the placement of a rate demarcation point was unnecessary.
There are grievances regarding the assignment of work as well as the inability of management being able to follow call out procedures.
There seems to be a new issue within labor relations not honoring long standing agreements in Delaware. This is a fight that has no end in sight due to their inability to understand that a process in place for decades without a written formal agreement can still be honored. The new attitude is for this local to show documents etc, when we are well aware that the working environment in Delaware was one where a handshake could work until now…
VCS bargaining unit;
The problematic “no light” issue is being worked on through the grievance procedure and this local is working diligently to provide a resolution to this unnecessary issue.
