This afternoon the Bargaining Team passed a comprehensive proposal on DirecTV.  In addition we passed proposals on Article 21 (Excused Work Days), The Career Support Coorindator Position and CWA-COPE PAC.  We rejected the Company's proposal on Electronic Monitoring.

The Company rejected our proposals on Relocation Pay in Articles 16 and 24.  The Company also rejected the following Union proposals under Article 43:

  • Minimum Interval Differential
  • Shifted Tour Differential
  • On Call Payments (increase)
  • Certification Incentive Payment Program (increase)
  • Sunday Differential
  • Relief/Meal Period
  • Add Operations Specialist to Certifications

As you can see the list of rejections continues to get longer.  It is clear that the Company has no interest in even incremental improvements for our members.

Let the Company know loud and clear it is time to agree to a fair and just contract.

Remember, the Company’s net profit in 2017 was $29.3 billion. That equates to $80,273,972 a day, including holidays (that’s like you winning the Powerball every day of the year).

In Unity,
