    • Without a good offer who will retire now, I can work until I am 70. I thought they wanted the older workers to leave. Why are they screwing with us? I expect an enhancement to leave, you know they will yank the health care the minute we do leave. I gets worse by the minute dealing with this outdit

    • Very sad. I had my bags packed

    • VZ/CWA/IBEW put the contract online

      Its now 3/30/10 a little over a year from expiration and the membership still doesn't have a copy of the contract. That is why all the rumors are out there , not too many people know exactly what the company is bound to do regarding the EIPP. Its pretty absurd when you think about it.

    • Still in Mass & RI....

    • Some tried to hold the Union's feet to the fire.

      "The national union should have seen this then and built in safeguards into the last contract but didn't , the company doesn't "have" to do anything extra and apparently will not. Actually why would they want to payoff the older employees, they will retire eventually after this workforce reduction anyway."

      If the contract is so great.

      Do you think that the company and the Union will put the actual contract on line,before the members vote? You know, post the new contract on the Company and CWA sites for the employees to see. This is of course a Communications company and union they can do it, if they want to be open. One has to ask why they would keep their employees / members in the dark and only share talking points before they vote on the contract. What would they want to hide from the employees.
      As time goes on, you see that the COLA is only at the third year of the contract. Employees did not even match the inflation rate for the past year, they are already behind on inflation now. This aggrement does not even bring them up to being even with inflation. 3.25% gain in the first year, is no where close. I guess you could call this a negative gain to put a positive spin on the contact. You see that the contract seems to be weighted more to the future. Waiting for more of the older work force to leave.
      Does anyone know about the letters of understanding? Or even if we have such letters. It seems to be that this contract sold out the newer employees. Stockholders can see reduced benefits for the future of the Company, which is a positive for the Company. HR,well, I think they are starting to chill the Champagne for a post approval


      ......................
      Now who are the suckers?

    • Some help please.
      I thought Verizon was out of New England.

    • sounds like the union is talking in past tense, I guess that's it for negotiations. There is no worse feeling than going to work every day knowing the company doesn't want you, there is no future, and knowing that the harder you work the quicker you are sealing your fate. This should come as no shock , they wanted to and did reduce the workforce before the build, they lost, but needed the employees anyway for the build, but now that the build is winding down it stands to reason that the workforce will be reduced. The national union should have seen this then and built in safeguards into the last contract but didn't , the company doesn't "have" to do anything extra and apparently will not. Actually why would they want to payoff the older employees, they will retire eventually after this workforce reduction anyway.

    • Today from IBEW 827 NJ
      The following is a message from the joint IBEW/CWA Bargaining Committee related to the talks on enhanced offers to relieve surpluses.



      Representatives of CWA Districts 1, 2 and 13 as well as IBEW New Jersey and New England met again today with the Verizon Labor Relations. No agreement was reached. The Union Committee presented ways that would relieve surpluses such as returning contracted work to the Bargaining Units, offering any job openings that existed in all Verizon subsidiaries and increasing the IPP, ISP offers.

      Verizon refused to do any of the things that the Union suggested except for increasing the IPP, ISP slightly.

      The Union Committee's efforts were aimed at saving jobs but the company believes that it needs to shed 12,000 employees without regard to our Contract, common decency, or the state of the economy.

    • here is the deal

      ipp= 1100/year capped at 30 years.....no one does this, you would have to be a dope

      eipp is called ENHANCED income protection plan..2200/yr capped at 66,000

      when someone says double Eipp, or double eisp it gets confusing, it makes me think of double 2200/yr, or 4400/yr which i don't think is going to happen...that would get people off the property though imo

    • Need to check contract. $2200 is double. :o(
