    CWA Social Media Policy Guidelines

    CWA strongly supports the use of social media sites to discuss and advocate for the important issues facing members and working families today. While these sites offer many advantages, they also can cause serious legal problems if they are not properly used and can lead to complicated legal proceedings as well as potential disciplinary action against employee users. We have developed these guidelines for CWA members to consult when using social media to help avoid legal or other problems.

      2015 Bargaining Survey

      Union power is impossible without the full participation of an organized, educated and mobilized membership. We cannot protect ourselves or make any gains without it.  A few leaders cannot do it alone. It is always important for us to come together as a unified front, but this year is even more crucial.

      THE 2015 CONTRACT FIGHT BEGINS TODAY

      IT'S A FIGHT FOR GOOD JOBS....

      FOR QUALITY SERVICE FOR ALL....

      Verizon has declared a surplus in FAAs 1-6.  This surplus  has been determined by the Company to be due to a process change, not an external event. The provisions of FAP Articles 8(b) and 10 will not apply.

      If the surplus condition requires the use of the Enhanced Income Protection Plan (EIPP) under step three of the Force Adjustment Plan, the EIPP packages will be distributed to employees in the surplus titles and FAAs involved by November 26, 2014.  The election period will be until December 10, 2014, and the off-payroll date will be December 21, 2014.


      The Regional Work and Family recently approved increases in the current programs. The following description outlines the program enhancements.

      Dependent Care Reimbursement Fund ( DCRF):  The weekly reimbursement is increasing from $50 to $100 effective June 1, 2014. Members will submit their paperwork in July.  An email notification to participants announcing the change is planned.

      Summer Camp:  This summer 2 children will be eligible for 2 sessions of summer camp.  The reimbursement will be increased from $200 per session to $300 per session.  Each child is eligible for a reimbursement of up to $600 for both sessions.  A family could receive up to $1,200 in reimbursements for 2 children.  

      Pendants:  Members will now be able to receive reimbursements for 2 family members.  Current participants will be notified via e mail of this change in the near future.

      In the coming weeks this material will also be available on the Work/Family website: www.regionalwfrc .com

      A great job was done by the  Local Work Family Committee who worked hard on presenting these changes for approval.
