Tape Release Tuesday, November 8th, 2016
Yesterday afternoon the Company reached out to your Union about the reorganization that was announced by CEO Dan McCarthy. As you may already know NYS VP Elena Kilpatrick has been reassigned to the West Virginia, Ohio, and Michigan Region. Paul Quick who was the Connecticut VP will be taking responsibility for New York and General Manager Bill Carpenter will be named as Director of Operations overseeing Rochester. Unfortunately the Company has begun the process of eliminating supervisors. At this point in time no CWA 1170 bargaining unit members are affected.
For those of you who don’t know your contract, this Friday, Veterans Day, is a Holiday that was negotiated for the elimination of the Day after Thanksgiving and 1 additional vacation day.
At Last Thursdays Sales and Service Unit meeting the following members were elected to the Executive Board. Jim Lynch and Steve Spector to represent the East side and Mike Sutphen and Bill Peacock to represent the West side.
Today is Election Day. Your Union is asking that you support our Congresswomen Louise Slaughter who has walked our picket lines, called on and written letters on our behalf to Frontier officials, she is deserving of our support as well as Adam Bello for county clerk and Harry Bronson for state assembly.
This Friday is Veterans Day, please take the time to thank one for their service to our great country, no matter who is elected President of the United States, our country will still be great because of the men and women who are willing to serve and hard working men and women like yourselves who go to work every day with a purpose to make lives better for your families.
And lastly, thank you to everyone who made contributions to the family of Gary Wagenhals. We will be meeting with the family later this week to present your donation. Gary will be missed greatly.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union tape the place where we’re proud to call ourselves Union Members.
