Local Update 3/13

Tomorrow is Thursday so remember to wear RED.  We have met with the members of the Legacy T bargaining team and they insured us that they have all of our members best interests in mind when bargaining. They are willing to meet with the company, whom is apparently not willing to change their stance on AT&T's final offer from almost a year ago.
 
The following represents the currently scheduled VTP/Surplus declaration windows
for represented occupational employees for the year 2019. 
 
Declaration Date VTP Off Payroll Date Surplus Off Payroll Date
1st Quarter 12/14/2018 01/18/19 02/22/19
2nd Quarter 03/15/19 04/19/19 05/17/19
3rd Quarter 06/14/19 07/19/19 08/23/19
4th Quarter 09/13/19 10/18/19 11/15/19

 

Reminder

Tomorrow is Thursday so we ask everyone to wear RED.

Bargaining: Well there has been absolutely no movement since August and there is a rumor that the company will meet with the bargaining team this month. Considering the fact that it is the 23rd we'd be surprised if it did happen this month. AT&T has made it clear that they can legally layoff people and they are doing just that. There are also news articles circulating about the closing of the Syracuse call center in April and it being moved to Orlando. Along with other articles of office closings all over the northeastern US. This is unprecedented actions that have never happened in the company before and they are clearly showing how much they don't care and that their level of greed is at an all time high.

AT&T wants to hit a watermark and apparently they will get to that number one way or another.

We need to continue to try to fight for a fair contract and have the company actually sit down and negotiate with our bargaining team. If we don't stand together as a united front then we have already lost. 

VTP offer today

And AT&T keeps reminding us how much they value us by presenting another VTP offer today. This one is for 80 members under the Legacy T contract. There is no surplus attached. They are moving this VTP at a surprisingly fast pace with members being off payroll in 3 weeks, where it is usually 30 days.

December VTP/Surplus

AT&T (the Grinch) strikes again. It is sad to say that right before Christmas they have announced yet another VTP/Surplus. Luckily for Local 1150 it did not affect any of our members. It did however affect others in NJ and across the nation.  Total of 17
