What's New at Local 1170
Tape Release Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 -
On behalf of the Union, I want to extend our sympathies to the family and friends of retiree James DeGennaro who passed suddenly on November 19th. Jim retired as a switch tech in June of 1996 from Frontier with 32 years of service. He was a great coworker and a dedicated Union Member who attended most retiree functions. His presence will be missed.
A funeral mass is being held this morning at 10am at the St. Joseph’s church, 43 Gebhardt Rd., Penfield, NY.
The Annual Retiree Christmas Luncheon is being held at Rick’s Prime Rib on Buffalo Rd. on Friday December 5th. Start time is around 11:30am. Please call the Union Hall and ask for Marge and Angela to reserve your spot.
On behalf of the Union Hall we want to wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
This is your President John Pusloskie, thanking you for calling your Union tape.

The four Officers will comprise your Bargaining Committee as we bargain a contract with Frontier in 2015.
I want to add a special thanks to the Election Committee: Rich Sarkis, Janice Rubsam, Dianne Ostrander, Michelle Damiani, Kim Hill, and Wordene Day for the important work they did in running the election.
I also want to thank the members for voting. I look forward to leading our Union into the New Year and the opportunity to bargain a new contract to improve our pay, working conditions, and benefits with Frontier. It will take all of us working together to improve our situation and we will soon be looking for Volunteers for different committees. United together we cannot be defeated.
