Come to a Fair Settlement with CWA Local 6171 Union Bargaining Committee

    1. Petition by

      Communications Workers of American Local 6171

For the past six months Verizon workers have been actively engaged in contract negotiations with Verizon management.

While Verizon reports billions in profits and their top six executives received pay totaling 70.3 million dollars in 2011, the Company is demanding excessive reductions from their employees covered by Collective Bargaining Agreements as well as capping and freezing future retiree benefits.

The Verizon workers are not asking for those kind of riches. We want a good standard of living and fair working conditions. With the Natiional unemployment rate being 7.8% we continue to seek job security and to reduce the number of jobs being outsourced.

Please join our efforts to fight for good jobs and stand up to Corporate greed at Verizon.

To:
Pedro Correa, Verizon Telecommunications, Region President, Consumer/Mass Business Markets
Come to a Fair Settlement with CWA Local 6171 Union Bargaining Committee

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Unless you are very wealthy this effects you. We are all in the same boat. These are regular working people and they as we all do, deserve a decent life for the work they do. It's justified. The ever increasing profits of large corporations are not.

      We are Verizon customers and think that the union should get a fair shake and settlement. Stop your posturing and give these people a fair wage with enough benefits to provide for a decent retirement. If you want a good work crew, put them first.

      My husband is a union member and has been through strikes. I feel people should be given a fair shake by their employers.
