Tape Release Thursday, September 25, 2014
An announcement for all switch techs: We have scheduled a conference call for 5pm this evening to discuss the details of the arbitration settlement concerning the elimination of the SCC. Also on the Agenda will be discussion in regards to the reorganization of the switch techs that will be taking place. The Company is going to begin polling today for a backfill for the systems group as well as openings for metro central offices. The details for the conference call have been emailed to each switch tech. You may also call into the office for this information.
As part of the settlement in regards to senior members being bypassed for the PBX positions, the Company will be offering AC/DC Classroom Support On October 14th and 15th with the test to be administered very soon thereafter. The test is open to all bargaining unit members. Please call into the Union hall to advise us of your interest and any questions that you may have. Also notify your supervisor as soon as possible that you would like the study materials. The Company has them readily available.
Posted as of yesterday on the Union’s website was information concerning a Veterans discount program for the following counties; Monroe, Livingston, Orleans, Ontario, and Genesee. Under the discount program a Veterans identification card is issued and provides veterans with discounts for products and services from participating vendors. This is a great way for veterans to save money.
We have a great turnout for the Annual Clambake and it looks like it is going to be a great day. See everyone there.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union tape, the place where we fight for the respect you deserve.
