Earlier today, Verizon announced that management and non-union employees who report to company buildings and retail stores will be mandated to be vaccinated against COVID-19, unless they have a medical or religious exemption.
CWA has launched a national vaccination survey for members. It is strictly voluntary. We want to know what you think about COVID-19 vaccines so we can make sure we provide you with information you need to make informed decisions about vaccinations. The survey is for all members whether you have had a vaccination, plan on getting a vaccination, or do not want to get a vaccination.

Unions are one of the most powerful tools we have to overcome divisions. When we organize against injustice in our workplaces, bargain a contract, attend a rally or raise funds for disaster relief we are taking action to benefit everyone. Being CWA Strong means that we are there for each other, every day, no matter what.
Last week we announced the Union and the Company had reached an agreement in principle that ALL members who put in for the surplus would receive it, and that the details were being finalized. Attached please find the Letter of Agreement with the details.
