Tape Release Wednesday December 23, 2015
On behalf of the Officers, Staff, and Executive Board of Local 1170, I want to wish all of our members, retirees and your families a Merry Christmas.
2015 has been an exciting year as we negotiated new Contracts with Frontier and some of our affiliates as well as welcoming new employees on board.
There have been 11 New Desk Techs and 6 New Clerks hired in the Commercial NOC center at Plymouth Ave. with 24 new positions yet to be filled. We will have new Sales and Service techs after the first of the year. All in 45 new positions need to be filled.
The transfers associated with the Sales and Service techs will be executed shortly after the first of the year. The Union will be working with the Company to make sure that the Polling’s for the Network tech positions and the Desk tech positions get filled as well.
We had another good year with the Take the Lead program as the members generated over $600,000 in annualized revenue and an additional $600,000 in commercial revenue for the future. All members will receive a bonus of $287.00 next week as a result.
There is much work to do heading into 2016 and I look forward to working with you to accomplish more. Thank you to everyone for your contributions in making this a successful year.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union tape, the place where we value families, freedom and fairness.
