Nokia Bargaining Report #59

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Today the Bargaining Team met with the Company to pass additional data requests based on discussions yesterday with the Company’s finance team.

  1. addition, since we have several major issues in front of us and in an effort to move things along the Bargaining Team presented the Company with a counter proposal on Post-Retirement Medical, Dental and Group Life Insurance. Our goal is to reach a common understanding regarding this important issue so that when we are ready to resume bargaining several components of an overall agreement will have been reached. To be clear, if we do reach an understanding of Post-Retirement Medical, Dental and Group Life insurance it will be contingent on us achieving an overall Agreement that provides for employment and retirement security.

Once again, we are asking that we gear up our mobilization activities around the country. It is critical that we have the support of both our active members as well as our retirees. If you are an active employee please reach out to your local, if you haven’t already, to ensure they have your contact information. If you are a retiree (or you know a retiree) please make sure you register with the CWA at www.cwa-union.org/nokiainfo so you can join us in our fight!

One Day Longer. One Day Stronger. An Injury To One, Is An Injury To All. United We Stand.

Your Bargaining Team,

Mary Jo Reilly
