FOA Lead exposure

As you may be aware, a recent Wall Street Journal investigation found that aging lead-clad telephone cables could pose a potential health hazard.  Toxic lead is a serious health hazard, especially for children and workers who may come into close contact with telecom wires and cables. Lead poisoning can occur through inhalation of lead dust or through direct skin contact, making those who handle or come near these cables particularly vulnerable.  

 

Lead exposure in adults can have a range of symptoms, but it is important to note that some individuals may not exhibit obvious symptoms even if they have elevated levels of lead in their bodies. The symptoms can vary based on the level and duration of exposure.   

 

It is essential to recognize that lead poisoning can have long-term effects, even if the symptoms are not immediately apparent. Prolonged exposure to elevated levels of lead can result in serious health issues. Blood tests can help determine lead levels, and early intervention can prevent further health complications.  

 

Past and present CWA members exposed to toxic lead due to their work assignments may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits and have a separate cause of action against the parties responsible for the lead exposure.  

 

FOA has represented CWA members for over 50 years, and we are uniquely qualified to review each member's personal situation and advise them on their legal rights. Not everyone will have a claim, but we will provide the proper information and guidance to people who contact us. We have created a separate web page, information sheet and phone number to address this critical issue.  Click here for more information: https://www.foalaw.com/practice-areas/personal-injury/toxic-lead-in-telecom-wires-and-cables/or call our dedicated toll-free number 1-888-533-3655 to learn more.   I have attached the information sheet to this email so your members can be educated on the harmful effects of lead poisoning.  Kindly print and hang in your locals and garages.

Message from CWA Dennis G. Trainor, Vice President, CWA District One:

CWA, IBEW and Verizon have reached an agreement in principle to extend the collective bargaining agreements for a three-year period. The current agreements are set to expire on August 5, 2023. If finalized, the agreements will extend through August 1, 2026. 

The company and the unions are documenting the understanding in signed contracts and expect to have that completed next week at which time we will communicate further details. 

The contracts will be subject to ratification by union members. 

The contracts will include long-term work- from- home provisions. Pending ratification of the contracts, the current work-from-home arrangements are continued.

Wishing you all a happy and safe 4th of July!

CWA and Verizon early bargaining

As you already know, CWA IBEW and Verizon began meeting for a three week period to attempt to negotiate the terms of a possible extension to the collective bargaining agreements that are set to expire in August 2023. We have agreed with the Company to continue meeting for the rest of this week and if necessary, to extend the negotiations into next week. 

We will provide additional updates as appropriate.

work at home arrangements
As you know, CWA and IBEW have been negotiating with Verizon since May 16, 2022 to determine whether it’s possible to agree on the terms of a contract extension. The current Covid-19 work at home renewal expires on Saturday, June 4, 2022. We have mutually decided it is everyone’s best interest to extend the work at home arrangements as the contract extension discussions continue. The work at home arrangements have been extended through July 16, 2022.

YOU ARE THE UNION

UNION BEGINS WITH

 YOU 

MOST PEOPLE FEEL THAT THE "UNION" IS THE BOARD, 

THE PEOPLE WHO "RUN" THE UNION. THIS COULD NOT  

BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH. 

THE "UNION" IS YOU: YOU ARE THE ONE WHO 

ELECTS YOUR OFFICIALS TO REPRESENT YOU. YOU ARE 

THE ONE WHO HAS THE PRIVILEGE TO GO TO YOUR 

MEETINGS AND SPEAK WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND, TO LET

YOUR BOARD KNOW OF ANY GRIEVANCE YOU MAY HAVE. 

A STRONG UNION IS ONLY AS STRONG AS ITS MEMBERS. 

SHOW VERIZON YOU STAND BEHIND YOUR UNION, ATTEND 

MEETINGS, REPORT INFRACTIONS BY MANAGEMENT TO YOUR 

SHOP STEWARD OR LOCAL WHEN THEY OCCUR. YOU WILL 

NEVER AGREE WITH 100% OF WHAT YOUR LOCAL DOES OR 

DOESN'T DO. BUT, IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU GET PAST  

THAT AND CARRY ON AND CONTINUE FIGHTING FOR YOUR 

RIGHTS. REMEMBER, YOU ARE THE EYES AND EARS OF YOUR

UNION. WITHOUT YOU...THERE WOULD BE NO "UNION". 

REMEMBER AGAIN UNION STARTS WITH U...N...I...
