CWA-AT$T Legacy T Bargaining Report #14Bargaining Report #14 - March 20, 2012

Vice President Maly said clearly ? ?Here we are in the fourth week of bargaining and the Company has NOT OFFERED ONE IMPROVEMENT. We are not here to do concessionary bargaining. The bargaining process is give and take ? not just we give and you take.?
In addition, the Union resubmitted its demand to equalize Termination Pay throughout the contract to the Article 25 level, and responded to the Company demand to eliminate the day after Thanksgiving as a fixed holiday.
