A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Friday, May 22, 2020
I hope this message finds you and your families healthy and safe.
We are fortunate that there have been no new cases of Covid-19 in Local 1120. All indications are that the 5 members that tested positive are either recovering well or have returned to work.
CWA continues to meet with Vassar College for unofficial dialogue with respect to their plans moving forward. Discussion have centered around voluntary furloughs at this time. As always, if an agreement is reached, it will be in the best interest of the CWA members, not anyone else. You as members will have the opportunity to vote on any agreement that may be reached. I WANT TO STRESS THAT THERE IS NO AGREEMENT IN PLACE! CWA has been canvasing members to see who would be interested in taking a voluntary furlough. IT IS JUST A CANVAS TO GAUGE INTEREST FROM OUR MEMBERS. CWA realizes that furloughs may be advantageous to some members, so we want to see what your interest is, if any.
There is no new news from Marist. As soon as we know anything official, you will know.
At Verizon, there have been several President conference calls with the District in relation to Verizon wanting to lift restrictions of techs going into homes. Business continues for our members under the same restrictions as when we started. Work from home, home garaging, bonus pay and customer premise restrictions continue to be in effect.
Any rumors coming out of any units are just that, rumors. DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU HEAR THAT DOESN’T COME FROM YOUR UNION!
Remember, if at any time you feel there is an unsafe condition that may put you at risk, report it to your Supervisor and contact a Steward or Business Agent immediately!
ON BEHALF OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF CWA LOCAL 1120, BE SAFE AND STAY SAFE!!!
Frank J Fauci Jr
President, CWA Local 1120
