Photo Above, May 20 at the Local in Manhattan: Our last 1101 RMC membership meeting until the active members ratify a new contract at Verizon. We are suspending our monthly RMC meetings so we can more easily participate in mobilization activities as events require. The Verizon contract expires August 1. This fight is our fight.
Our Fundraiser at the Dempsey Scholarship Golf Benefit was once again a huge success. Thanks to Local 1101 officers and staff for allowing us to participate, to all the volunteers who were so helpful, to all our union brothers and sisters who contributed with $$$ and a smile, and to our fundraisers especially Mary Anne and Bill Haas.

Januray Membership Meeting

RMC Membership Meeting January 21, at Local 1101

The first 1101 RMC meeting of 2015 began with a lengthy update on the Verizon Life Insurance for retirees, and the status of the new (and very bad) AT&T medical plan for Medicare eligible retirees. Please go to the Benefits & Medicare page of this website and scroll down for full details about both.

We also got a report on the situation with the Fairpoint strikers in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. This was one of the many pieces of the old Bell System that Verizon sold off. In this case it went to an outfit that went broke in 2009, emerging from bankruptcy with hedge fund owners, instead of the original half a million stockholders. Now they have forced a strike.

AT&T contract is up in April. The Verizon contract is up in August. We are planning to mobilize to support the Local and the CWA, and to let everyone know the union retirees are organized. Hands off our pensions and benefits! Further details about our plans at the February 25 membership meeting at the Local.
