CWA, IBEW and Verizon have reached an agreement in principle to extend the collective bargaining agreements for a four-year period. The current agreements are set to expire on August 3, 2019. If finalized, the agreements will extend through August 5, 2023.
The nomination process for the office of Business Agent in CWA Local 1103 closed at 4:30 pm today. There is only one nominee for the office and delegate to the CWA National Union Convention certified by the election committee. Therefore the Election Committee has convened and cast one vote for the nominee and declares Chis Calabrese duly elected.
As you already know, CWA, IBEW and Verizon began meeting for a two-week period to attempt to negotiate the terms of a possible extension to the collective bargaining agreements that are set to expire in August 2019. We have agreed with the Company to extend the negotiations for a few additional days after the holiday.
