New Members at EDS Ratify First Contract

A lot of the work they do was previously done by contractors, so we're happy to have that work now under the CWA umbrella.

The three-year contract expires in 2021.The contract includes wage increases, a 20% decrease in medical premiums, and paid short and long term sick leave. It has two additional weeks of paid vacation time, an additional paid holiday (the day after Thanksgiving), an Enhanced 401K plan, and double time on Sunday. The contract makes crystal clear: WE ARE ALL BETTER OFF UNION!

Congratulations to the newest 1101 members who worked hard to make this happen.

The Bargaining team included:

John Dempsey, CWA District 1 Staff Representative

Jerome Parades, Local 1101 Vice President Bronx

Ken Spatta, Local 1101 Business Agent Bronx

Brendan Tobin, Local 1101 Chief Steward
