Know Your Weingarten Rights!

If an employee has a reasonable belief that discipline or other adverse consequences may result from what he or she says, the employee has the right to request union representation. Management is not required to inform the employee of his/her Weingarten rights; it is the employees responsibility to know and request.

"If this discussion can in any way lead to me being disciplined, I respectfully request union representation before I answer any questions"

Protect yourself! Learn it, use it!

A Message From The President

The Executive Board welcomes all Communications Workers of America, AFL,CIO Local 1120 members to our web page. The purpose of this web page is to provide a means of supplying information about our local and labor issues.    To all cwa local 1120 members. I want to thank all of my fellow union brothers and sisters for their commitment, and determination in keeping our local strong. Together we can overcome any challenge that we may face.

Frank J. Fauci Jr.
President, CWA Local 1120

           

 We must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.
Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone…Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote.”

Martin Luther King

IMPORTANT UPDATE

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

FridayMay 29, 2020

 

I hope this message finds you and your families healthy and safe. 

 

Unfortunately we learned of another positive test of one of our members. This was in the Town of Saugerties DPW. That makes 6 members testing positive for Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic.

 

CWA has reached a tentative agreement on an MOA with Vassar College, which includes voluntary furloughs, wages and an extension of the CBA. As promised we will present this to the membership early next week for your approval and ratification. You will be notified Monday of the format of the meeting. CWA Local 1120 believes this agreement is in the best interest of our members. But that is up to you to decide.

 

We will also be meeting with Marist on Monday to discuss their plan for reopening in the fall. We will update you ASAP. 

 

Verizon has notified technicians of their plan to lift restrictions of techs going into homes. They have also changed the bonus pay from $300 a week to $60 a day for the days you work. This could be $420 a week if you work 7 days, or $60 a week if you work 1 day. The work from home agreement and home garaging will continue at this time. Contact your Business Agent if there are any questions on these issues. 

 

Any rumors coming out of any units are just that, rumors. DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU HEAR THAT DOESN’T COME FROM YOUR UNION! 

 

Remember, if at any time you feel there is an unsafe condition that may put you at risk, report it to your Supervisor and contact a Steward or Business Agent immediately!

 

As this pandemic eases and businesses and the economy start to reopen, we must remain smart and take whatever precautions we can to avoid a setback. 

 

ON BEHALF OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF CWA LOCAL 1120, BE SAFE AND STAY SAFE!!!

 

In Solidarity

IMPORTANT UPDATE

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Friday, May 22, 2020

I hope this message finds you and your families healthy and safe. 
We are fortunate that there have been no new cases of Covid-19 in Local 1120. All indications are that the 5 members that tested positive are either recovering well or have returned to work.
CWA continues to meet with Vassar College for unofficial dialogue with respect to their plans moving forward. Discussion have centered around voluntary furloughs at this time. As always, if an agreement is reached, it will be in the best interest of the CWA members, not anyone else. You as members will have the opportunity to vote on any agreement that may be reached. I WANT TO STRESS THAT THERE IS NO AGREEMENT IN PLACE! CWA has been canvasing members to see who would be interested in taking a voluntary furlough. IT IS JUST A CANVAS TO GAUGE INTEREST FROM OUR MEMBERS. CWA realizes that furloughs may be advantageous to some members, so we want to see what your interest is, if any.
There is no new news from Marist. As soon as we know anything official, you will know. 
At Verizon, there have been several President conference calls with the District in relation to Verizon wanting to lift restrictions of techs going into homes. Business continues for our members under the same restrictions as when we started. Work from home, home garaging, bonus pay and customer premise restrictions continue to be in effect.
Any rumors coming out of any units are just that, rumors. DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU HEAR THAT DOESN’T COME FROM YOUR UNION! 
Remember, if at any time you feel there is an unsafe condition that may put you at risk, report it to your Supervisor and contact a Steward or Business Agent immediately!
ON BEHALF OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF CWA LOCAL 1120, BE SAFE AND STAY SAFE!!!

IMPORTANT UPDATE

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Friday, May 15, 2020

I hope this message finds you and your families healthy and safe. I was encouraged that many more members have signed up to our website for these updates with over 50 in the colleges alone.

We are fortunate that there have been no new cases of Covid-19 in Local 1120. All indications are that the 5 members that tested positive are either recovering well or have returned to work.

CWA continues to meet with Vassar College for unofficial dialogue with respect to their plans moving forward. Vassar has approached CWA and other Unions about possible financial relief for the College during this Pandemic. As some of you may know, SEIU has reached an agreement with Vassar on this issue. Keep in mind that SEIU did what they felt was in the best interest of their members. As always, if an agreement is reached, it will be in the best interest of the CWA members, not anyone else. You as members will have the opportunity to vote on any agreement that may be reached. I WANT TO STRESS THAT THERE IS NO AGREEMENT IN PLACE! CWA has made it clear that we will listen to all of their concerns but, initially we do not believe that Vassar has made a compelling case for the need for relief. During this time, CWA will be canvasing members to see who would be interested in taking a voluntary furlough. IT IS JUST A CANVAS TO GAUGE INTEREST FROM OUR MEMBERS. CWA realizes that furloughs may be advantageous to some members, so we want to see what your interest is, if any.

As of this date, Marist has not given us any indication of their plans moving forward, although we remain in constant communication with them.

At Verizon, business continues for our members under the same restrictions as when we started. Work from home, home garaging, bonus pay and customer premise restrictions continue to be in effect.

Any rumors coming out of any units are just that, rumors. DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU HEAR THAT DOESN’T COME FROM YOUR UNION! 

Remember, if at any time you feel there is an unsafe condition that may put you at risk, report it to your Supervisor and contact a Steward or Business Agent immediately!

Update from the President 5/8

IMPORTANT UPDATE

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Friday, May 8, 2020

I hope this message finds you and your families healthy and safe. We still have 5 confirmed members that have tested positive for Covid-19 in Local 1120. There are 2 in our Marist unit, and 1 each at Vassar, Monroe Library and Verizon. Those members continue to recover, quarantining at home, or have returned to work. 

We are awaiting information from Marist on their plans for reopening.

At Vassar we continue unofficial dialogue with Vassar on their plans moving forward. Vassar has approached CWA and other Unions about possible financial relief for the College during this Pandemic. CWA has made it clear that we will listen to all of their concerns but, initially we do not believe that Vassar has made a compelling case for the need for relief. They have also not done anything to show they are taking any first steps to alleviate the problems they think may arise.

Any rumors coming out of any units are just that, rumors. DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU HEAR THAT DOESN’T COME FROM YOUR UNION! 

At Verizon, in light of Covid-19, The Regional and Local Work Family Committee have updated the Health & Wellness Application. Since gyms are closed we will start to accept Home Fitness Subscriptions to the program. As long as the subscription is in the member's name and they make the payments they qualify for reimbursement. The updated application is posted on our website. Contact your Business Agent if you have any questions or need assistant.  

AT&T Mobility will no longer pay any bonuses related to Covid-19 effective May 10, 2020. The Union and employees were notified on May 4, 2020 of this change. 

Remember, if at any time you feel there is an unsafe condition that may put you at risk, report it to your Supervisor and contact a Steward or Business Agent immediately!
