A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Friday, July 10, 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.
At Marist, the college has moved forward with their plan for the elimination of 10 CWA Union jobs. I have spoken to many of you by phone as well as email. I feel your pain. It is inexcusable that Marist refused any of CWA solutions to help them out financially, as opposed to job elimination. The benefit that Marist will receive pales in comparison to the damaging effects that will take place for the effected members and their families. Let this be a stark reminder that this is not the Marist we all knew and loved. This is Marist Corporation, where the dollar is the bottom line for them. Rest assured, CWA will hold firm to make sure Marist follows OUR contract as we see it. Hopefully, the burden will be limited, but one Member harmed is one too many!
At Verizon, CWA has agreed to extend Home Garaging as well as Work from Home agreement through September 30,2020.
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!!!
Frank J Fauci Jr
President, CWA Local 1120
