CWA Bargaining Reports #8 and #9 summarize the Company’s initial proposal to the CWA Bargaining Committee. It is obvious after analyzing the Company’s proposal that they intend to delete as many work rules as they can from the Labor Agreement. In addition they seem determined to pass on substantial costs regarding Benefits to Employees. Your CWA Committee is determined that this will not happen. But it takes all of us sticking together to send a strong message to the Company. Talk to your fellow Union Members, educate them as to what the Company is attempting to do. Tell your Managers that you stand shoulder to shoulder with your Union Committee, and that we will not rest until we have negotiated a fair Labor Agreement.
