Verizon wants the FCC to violate union contracts

Verizon wants the FCC to violate union contracts

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering changes to its pole attachment rules, including “One Touch, Make Ready” (OTMR). One Touch, Make Ready allows third parties to move, alter, or remove cable, telephone, and utility company equipment on utility poles. Verizon wants the FCC to adopt One Touch, Make Ready, even when it would violate legally binding contracts between employers and their union workers.

There are plenty of reasons to oppose OTMR: There is no accountability in cases where the contractor doesn’t do the job properly and customers lose services. Contractors don’t have the rigorous training needed to perform this dangerous work. And this work has been a subject of negotiation between union workers and their employers for decades.

CWAAT&T, and Frontier want the FCC to make sure that any new pole attachment rules respect longstanding collective bargaining agreements that ensure skilled union workers do this work. But Verizon broke ranks, and urged the FCC to ignore these agreements and support OTMR, violating the rights of the workers who negotiated them in their labor agreements.

AT&T Contract Talks
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
40,000 workers at AT&T just announced that they will walk off the job for three days starting Friday at 3pm ET/Noon PT if they haven't won a fair union contract by then. Workers have been at the bargaining table for months fighting for good jobs against a company dead set on lining its pockets at the expense of the workers who make them billions. This weekend we are sending AT&T a message that we are united and ready to fight.
 
This will be the biggest strike in the United States since Verizon workers walked out last year, and may be the biggest strike of retail workers at a national company in U.S. history. The strike would include 21,000 retail and call center workers at AT&T Wireless across the country, and 19,000 AT&T West landline and DIRECTV workers in California and Nevada, along with landline workers in Connecticut.
We are asking you to email all of your members and supporters, and let them know about this important strike. And we are asking you to mobilize to bolster our picket lines this weekend. You can access a package of support information here, including a version of this letter, another possible version of an email blast, and social media materials. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B3AE1ah7Z4ascWxpMG1iZE5VNEk?usp=sharing
 
Click here to find a location near you and RSVP. We’ll be back in touch to let you know if there is no settlement and we are on strike Friday. [https://actionnetwork.org/event_campaigns/strike-at-att-mobility]
 
If you can’t join us on the picket line, click here now to send an email to CEO Randall Stephenson to say you stand with workers fighting for good jobs. [https://actionnetwork.org/letters/send-a-message-to-ceo-stephenson?source=YOURORGNAME]
 
Workers at AT&T have seen benefits get more and more expensive year after year and have watched as AT&T downgrades and offshores thousands of jobs. And this isn’t just about AT&T, which is the 10th largest company in the country and made $13 billion in profits last year. We have to take a stand to say working people can’t be used and abused while companies make billions off our backs.
 
If workers do hit the street on Friday, they will be striking to protect their jobs (which are being outsourced left and right), preserve affordable health care, and stop their wages from stagnating.
 
Please sign up here to join a picket line either Friday, Saturday or Sunday! [https://actionnetwork.org/event_campaigns/strike-at-att-mobility]
 
This fight is bigger than AT&T, this is about working people standing up to corporate power for good jobs and a better future. I hope you’ll join AT&T wireless workers on the picket line this weekend.
 
In Solidarity,

Momentive Strike

Big news! Momentive workers have reached a tentative agreement to end the 14-week strike in Waterford, NY.

Supporters like you came out to the picket line, signed petitions, came to rallies, and donated thousands of dollars that helped support the working families on strike.

Your help has been invaluable and we offer our sincere thanks.

Details of the agreement are being withheld until they are presented to workers at contract explanation meetings this weekend, but we are confident the agreement addresses the concerns of workers about retirement and health and pension security.  

Workers will vote on the contract next week and, if the contract is approved, will return to work on Wednesday, February 15.

Thank you again for standing with the working families on strike. Your support helped strengthen the power of working people not only in Waterford, but across the country.

In Unity,

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...
