Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Today the Bargaining Team met with the Company who presented us 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. The Union will be reviewing the Company proposal and will resume discussions in the upcoming weeks.
We continue to wait for the company to provide key financial information that was requested by the CWA Research Economists as part of the NLRB Settlement. Once the data is received and reviewed we will re-engage in contract negotiations.
As always, we are asking that you 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/nokiainfoso 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
