A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
During this difficult and challenging time I have instructed all Business Agents to reach out to each and every member to see if you need anything work related or on a personal basis.
Over the last 5 weeks, all Local Presidents have been on daily conference calls with the district as they work with Verizon and other employers on various issues such as paid LOA, home garaging and bonus pay to name a few.
I have been in constant contact with second, third and fourth level managers at Verizon to ensure safe working condition are adhered to in CWA Local 1120. We have sent out questionnaires prepared by the District to all other employers to ensure they are also adhering to safe working condition for our members.
We as an Executive Board will continue to monitor each and every situation that arises to ensure you are safe the best that we can.
We have suspended garage visits during this time to adhere to Social Distancing Guidelines. We will also make a decision on our May quarterly membership meeting shortly.
Some things you can do during this time:
*Wash your hands frequently with antibacterial soap and use hand sanitizer often.
*If you feel there is an unsafe working condition, contact a steward immediately to report it so we can rectify the situation.
*Practice social distancing at home and in your personal life when ever possible. Stay 6 feet apart whenever you can.
*If you feel sick, stay home and quarantine for at least 14 days.
*Lastly, check on the elderly and the most vulnerable in need. Help out however you can while keeping yourself safe!
ON BEHALF OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF CWA LOCAL 1120, BE SAFE AND STAY SAFE!!!
Frank J Fauci Jr
President, CWA Local 1120
