Tape Release Thursday, October 30th, 2014
Open enrollment for 2015 health insurance benefits for active employees begins today for Frontier employees. I cannot stress enough how important it is to print out your confirmation statement. Once the enrollment period is over you will be locked into your selections. The Union has posted to its website under the Member Resource, Frontier Telephone section the different plans and prices for 2015. For anyone who has the Excellus Blue Point 3 plans, they’ve become totally unaffordable compared to the Anthem Frontier Select plan. Please do your due diligence in reviewing the benefits, especially if your currently signed up with the Excellus Blue Point plans.
The Union has recently become aware that the Company has changed the performance standards program for the Sales and Service Techs. We have sent notice to the Company to demand to bargain and a cease and desist from implementing the new program and put the former plan in place. We will be calling for a stewards meeting very soon for the Sales and Service Techs to discuss the matter. Stewards will be notified of the Date and Time of the meeting. A reminder, please call for a Union steward if you’re called into a meeting to discuss your performance.
The Election Committee will be mailing the ballot for the election of your Local Officers next week along with any letters that the candidates will be mailing to the members. You will be voting for the office of President and Vice President. The following candidates will be on the ballot: Rick Sanchez and John Pusloskie For President and Andy Cimino and Tom Tartaglia for Vice President. You will receive a letter along with the Ballots with the date and time that the Ballots must be returned by. Please take the time to return your ballots, as the Union puts a lot of time, effort, and money into conducting the election.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union tape, the place where we fight for the respect you deserve.
