Windstream Bargaining Report 5/7/2020

Sisters and Brothers,

The Union countered the company proposal on Monday. Our Staff Rep checked with the company on the status and they informed him that they probably won't have an answer until mid-week next week because of having to get approval due to them being in bankruptcy and there is money in the counter. We will update again when something develops.

A second issue that was addressed with Bruce Hurlbut was the step wage increases that have been reached since expiration. The company says because we do not have a current agreement with wage schedules they did not implement the step progression. I told him we will file grievances until it is rectified to protect our time limits. I suggest we continue to file one for each individual that has not received one. Once we establish a new wage table the retroactivity should be given. We will monitor that once an agreement is ratified.
