Tape Release Tuesday, December 8th 2015
Today is the Final announcement on the CWA EPoll for Presidential endorsement for 2016, most of you are probably happy about that, there are only 4 days left to fill out the poll. We need 30 more members to go to the website CWAVOTES.ORG to get to 10% participation by the membership. This is an unprecedented effort by the CWA to seek membership input on what candidate to endorse. The poll takes less than 2 minutes to complete, I’m asking for your help in getting this done. The Poll can also be accessed by going to our website CWALOCAL1170.com where you can link to the poll.
Members have until December 15th to submit a lead for the 2015 Take the Lead Bonus. As of today, we’re at one half % of payroll for this year’s bonus. If 10 more members who haven’t submitted a lead put one in by the 15th , it will increase the bonus by $35 for every member, which would be an extra $13,000.00. If you haven’t already done so, please get a lead in and everyone will get a little extra dough in their check before Christmas.
An email has gone out to the entire bargaining unit for a show of interest for the Desk Tech job openings. The Company is honoring the AC/DC requirement until the end of the year, as well as the new requirements put in place. If you have any questions, please call the Union office. If you would like to take the AC/DC test, please contact your supervisor as soon as possible.
Update on the Sales and Service openings: It is unlikely that the moves that were polled for will take place before the end of the year. The Company is also interviewing candidates off the street for the 4 remaining positions. It is expected that all the moves will take place in early January.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union tape, the Place where we fight for the respect you deserve.
