Yeah because 14 states is such a small area.

"Well skippy, There may have been ratification in Qwest area...but there's a LOT more to the company than just the failed Qwest area. yall ratified a garbage contract ? glad your proud of it. Glad you drank the Kool-Aid. There are many areas who are getting ready to go into contract negotiations come first quarter 2020. Some of these areas have been DECIMATED by VSPP areas that used to run 25 men are now running 7 !!!! VSPP has also laid waste to Union membership numbers as well. Im sure they are close to the 50% maybe below in some areas i speak of...Yall high and mighty on the hill, and just cast off your union brothers whom are being picked off slowly but surely. Some area's may be entirely run by contractors theses days. Hell they even let em park in the yards overnight i hear. so just know Qwest Boy there are a LOT of non-qwest areas too and a load of rural plant that has been IGNORED solidly for 10 years or more......Its pretty obvious to all with eyes the end is near...does that mean all of you monkeys will be gone? Time will tell....maybe youll just contract for unit pay....hell maybe you already are on unit pay? "

They take the bigger group and settle first and use that as a baseline for other areas, the represented areas will be encouraged to follow the contract that was approved with no changes to anything other then the medical, which means the VSPP and surplus language is the same, That's REPRESENTED AREAS, non represented areas are going to be treated as they always have, no notice, no options other then what the Company decides.

The whole company Union and Non Union is being laid waste, we all that actually do work here feel it every day. We also know it can't be sustained, things left undone, records not updated, people passing things to others due to lack of knowledge of technology, those Units will become outages because they don't know any processes or follow them. Even the National and GPON groups need the correct records and assignments to make money, daily I see where they change stuff and don't re issue and have reviews or document what they did in the field and things are held up till Senior people figure out what they didn't do. Hear where Contractors send stuff to Cable Splicers and in house Fiber Splicers because they don't want to spend time pumping out man holes or fix splice boxes they break open and damage the fibers within and then leave and not repair or report.

"The next "date" for you is of course obvious to all with eyes in they're sockets.....it is the expiration date of your current union contract . At which point v.s.p.p. bonuses go away, they don't sign a contract. They wait you out. without said contract .......and then simply slide contractors in!! there is no contract remember? Its happening everywhere.....all rural areas are in effect doomed. You may work an area where there is gpon and fiber, you have some time left. Except they are using contractors here for fiber now? .......tra la la la la la la happy Thanksgiving !! a lot to be thankful for ? did you get a card? a turkey? an e-mail? hahahahahaha no need to answer . looking forward to the Christmas Holiday !!! and that stellar bonus ...er uh well no not anymore these days "

So with the ratification of the contract your saying 3 years plus in Legacy Qwest areas . I think things happen before then, I suggest you get you facts in order before you troll post again

In Utah 30 something broadband/network techs. Off the books by early Feb. There seems to be enough opportunities for them to move to open positions if they want to. Nothing in Utah though.

"This time of year the company always seems to lay people off, we call it the “holiday nutcracker”. Sad way this company conducts its business in the 4th quarter. "

Sadly in by gone days people used to put aside money so their families could celebrate the holidays and have a few nice items under the tree, now they try to put something aside so they can have a rood over their heads come January and February.
