Brothers and Sisters of the IBEW System Council T-6 Locals,

As you are aware the Business Managers of the IBEW SCT-6 Council, along with IBEW Local 827, CWA District1 and CWA District 2-13, have been engaged in discussions with Verizon working towards an extension of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement.  At this time we are able to report that a five year extension has been reached in principle.  We expect to sign the tentative agreement in the very near future.  We believe this extension will afford Union Members the ability to continue to care for their families until August 5, 2023.

Complete terms of the tentative agreement extension will be made available once the Tentative Agreement has been signed by all parties.

We thank you for your patience and support during this process.
