All union members and anyone else who doesnt want to see the middle class exterminated in this country ---
please sign this petition and keep bumping it up to the top of this page.
The union should have fought this fight in 2003 when the union was stronger and Ivan was Still sitting on the other side of that board table you knew cwa this was coming now the union is not as strong and verizon is twice as rich now you got the tiger by the tail and you better know how to let him go cwa this is a brand new beast why do you think the teachers and other large union hasnt approached this situation yet. they are all waiting to see who the winner is befor they cast their vote. Cwa is going to need a judge just like Wisconsin I hope the verdict isn't the same, because I hope this wasn't all a ploy to get cwa to court so they can be broken broken by a judge just like the new telephone split in the eighties. Cwai say again you should have walked out without a contract this is a ambush verizon is gong to wait until they get cwa to court and make them spend alot of union money they had not anticipated on spending you better send your members back to work so you can continue to collect union dues to help with those legal fees because you better believe verizons coming with deep pockets way deeper than cwa pockets.
Signing this petition by us non-union people, how will this help us. We will not get an increase in our salaries or pensions or help with our medical.
All I can see is it will help you and hurt us. This does not make any sense to me. Any non union people that sign it to help you needs to have their heads examined.
When union people get raises , we on fixed incomes or low wages get a big hurt. Our standard of living goes down.
This contract CWA is trying to get, and you want non-union people to sign the petition, What do we, the non-union, low income wage earner and fixed income people get? I think all the benefits are for union members and union leaders.
Usually what we, the poor people get with your contract is: an increase in our cost of living; increase in our taxes; reduced employment; and you make more of us poor people.
Non-union people thinik about it.
Union is great for union members, but terrible for those of us that are not members. Never has a union helped us in any way.
you will find out what a useful tool you were if the unions disappear.Then all workers wages will go down and benefits will be non existent. Pick up a history book and find out what things were like in the late 1800's to early 1900's .
Go look on YouTube workers crossing the picket line you know why because just like in 2003 when members ask should they take that buyout the union said nothing to it members about fighting so they felt discouraged not encouraged so just like now people are starting to feel discouraged with the union. So don't be shocked and enraged I bet most of those people are the ones who were already laid off befor who the hell in this economic climate are will to risk their livelyhood again for the same ones who put in that position with a contract in 2003 and your asking them to do it again with no contract. Hey cwa your board members need their heads examined they already got coverage. You know what cwa now stand for in other industries C=come on W=walk away from your jobs, A=!$#%-holes.
