Crickets from the union, the company, and of course Bernie. As other states like CA are actively negotiating in good faith there has been zero movement on FL negotiations since the old contract expired. Meanwhile the headcount in FL has significantly decreased with no new workers to take their place.

Quitting paying dues? Value for your dues? Only what that there has been layed down in your contracts. Down abandoned by your union.? Poorly managed perhaps, but still of some use, against the "corporation". Keep the faith.
IBEW Local 363 should have at least challenged the company if even for the sake of the court costs. First they caved to the use of contractors (CWA Poughkeepsie NY, should never have allowed this). The company walked all over us. Local 363 allowed swapped emplyees (lots of flexiblity for the company) to send their members for work in Monroe and Local 503 and even for Local 320 in East Fishkill. Yeah that was solidarity. Should have never been allowed but no, while they attended conventions and drove automobiles provided by our dues. Shameful, no embarassment.

Stopped payin mine a couple months ago...best decision I ever made.
Quit paying dues to IBEW824 !!!!
To Verizon NJ,
As a law biding etc. etc. what would they have done these days. I say throwing rocks and bottles, setting fires and overturning police cruisers. Could might have helped rather than our families going down the drains. Do something, bring them to court at least. Challenge them for what we paid in dues.
We would have a new contract already if the techs would just agree to a pay cut. Their greed is going to sink this company and destroy the rest of us. Makes me nauseous.
IBEW 824 no Balls rid of that do nothing union .
$80 k for union hall workers is nothing compared to the hundreds of thousands of dollars just sitting in all of the union bank accounts.
To "Old School"
And yes the rurals here don't even deserve some new batteries for the remotes (and they immediately go on their arses). And our customers just love it Their just waiting for Spectrum to come down their street to jump ship.
Re: Just Plain Over It
Sounds just like most of our blessed politicians in this country. Democrats & RINOS.
I’m beginning to think our union only cares about money and not us. I heard people in the union hall make $80k a year with a car allowance. That really burns my biscuits when I think about them living the high life. SMH
I really can’t stand anyone from the Florida workforce. They think they know it all. Can’t wait til it’s just us the original rural customer service crew. We really handled business!
Bernie if you or your do nothing VPs are reading this it’s pretty clear.... cut FL loose!
Months ago I called the glorious 824 hall and asked what the status was. I was told that Frontier only has one bargaining team and that they were busy with Connecticut, but Florida would be next. Well I guess I was feed a big ole stinking pile of BS by the union once again. If that’s true why are they negotiating with California?
If they offer us all $35K each, that would be a nice buyout.
They really should just buyout all FL employees and then re-hire whoever is willing to accept a non-union wage. There is nothing stopping them right now from doing this so they really should consider it. A buyout would be the best thing for both sides.
How much of a buyout does Frontier have to give us if they close?
If I was a FL worker i wouldnt be giving the union a dime of my money
Just give us a buyout and stop playn wit me!
Frontier has filed for BANKRUPTCY....................maybe that's why no contract for FL ?
well if theyre going to reduce headcount you want it through attrition and not layoffs. just saying.
