Ratification Announcement

August 17, 2018

 

The IBEW System Council T-6 announces that a four year extension has been ratified by the Members of IBEW Locals 2222, 2320, 2321, 2322, 2323, 2324, and 2325.  96% voted in favor of the Agreement.

 

The current Collective Bargaining Agreement, which was set to expire in August of 2019, will be in effect until August 5, 2023. 

 

Wages will accrue to an 11.2% increase during the four years of the extension.  Benefits will continue to be among the best in the Telecom Industry.  Protecting jobs and giving Members security for themselves and their families until 2023 was a direct result of the steadfastness of IBEW SCT-6 Members during the 2016 Strike of Verizon.  Verizon believed that they could break the Union in 2016.  Cancelling Health Care Benefits of our families did not sway Members.  It angered them.

 

In the end, Verizon did not achieve its goal of fracturing the Union.  Instead, we achieved a fair contract that protected Members and their families.  And now, after spending 7 weeks holding the line in 2016, the result is 7 years of Contract protections. 

In sum, this 4 year extension is a direct result of you, the Members, showing great resolve and a willingness to fight for your future in 2016. 

 

Verizon will continue to make money.  Union Members will continue to be able to care for their families.  It is a two-way street.  If it becomes a one-way street again in 2023 we know where we will be found.  Right in front of a Verizon Wireless store or anywhere we need to be, fighting for our families.

 

Thank you for your support.

 

Fraternally,

John D. Rowley Sr.
