Mid-Atlantic Regional Bargaining Report #32

September 2, 2015

The Regional Committee met with the company today in an off-table discussion regarding healthcare.  These discussions are an attempt to clarify information and find areas of agreement where we can move forward in these very slow negotiations.  Tomorrow, members of the committee will meet regarding local issues.  A report on the local meeting will be provided to the specific bargaining unit.

Today, we understand, Verizon released a new logo. We are sure this took months and months of heavy design costs to come up with this masterpiece.  You have to believe that if the Company has the money to design a new logo and replace it on all of the buildings, vehicles and literature than they damn sure have money for fair and equitable contract for our members. 

This weekend, most areas will be having Labor Day activities. The committee encourages everyone to get out to the events in your area.  We must take this opportunity to join with our other brothers and sisters in labor and tell the story of our fight with Verizon to other labor organizations and the public at large.

Why We Wear RED on THURSDAYS???

The History of Wearing RED:

The idea of wearing RED as a sign of Solidarity began at the Communications Workers of America in 1989. It began as a movement out of love for a brother who lost his life to a SCAB. Tricia McNamara had to get to work and drove through the line of picketers.

In her desperation, this summer-hire SCAB struck down Brother Gerry Horgan. He gave his life for what he believed in, for what he loved, for what he lived for. He wanted what we all want, a good life for his wife, his children, and his friends. Local 1103 in Westchester County N.Y. lost a Brother that day. A wife lost her husband and two little girls lost their daddy to Corporate GREED. This greed still exists today. The members of that Local wore RED for the first time in Unity for Brother Gerry Horgan.

That display of Unity is what CWA members are supposed to be all about. Is it too much to ask that we wear RED on Thursdays, to say with a color or your voice "I'm Proud To Be A Union Member, I'm Proud To Be With CWA!"? Remember, wear RED on Thursday, and please remember Brother Gerry Horgan! We wear RED on Thursdays, and we encourage all working people to wear RED on Thursdays, too, because every working person deserves a good paying job with benefits.  

WE ARE CWA!!!
