WHAT THE COMPANY IS NOT TELLING YOU!
With Verizon’s Pension Proposal, the days of a Happy Retirement could be a thing of the Past!
We Should Not be Sitting In!
Since Verizon has allowed the contract to expire without giving us a FAIR contract, we should not be sitting in for Management. Let’s make them work.
While our Bargaining Committee is in formal bargaining with Verizon fighting the toughest negotiations we have experienced in decades, please stand united and refuse to take management work.
