President/Business Manager’s Report


On January 18 I attended the Tier 1 Safety Meeting in Syracuse.  January 22 – 24 I was in Atlantic City, NJ for an IBEW Organizing Conference.  January 29- February 1 IBEW International Representatives Brian Brennan and Craig Duffy visited Buffalo, Syracuse and Albany with me to lead training sessions with our Executive Board and Stewards. On February 19 I attended the Central South Unit meeting in Binghamton.

Our Work Issues Committee and 3rd step grievance meetings that were scheduled for this week have been postponed, we are working on new dates.  We are also in the process of scheduling two arbitration cases to be heard.
Good news – the Health and Wellness reimbursement has been extended for 2019!  I sent the information via email last week and it was also in our newsletter.  If you have any questions, please reach out to me, or your area ABM.
There are lots of payouts coming in the first 3 weeks of March; attendance, CPS and the RSU grant. Remember – these things aren’t gifts, we work hard for every cent Verizon pays us!
In Solidarity,

Barbara Carson
President/Business Manager
