Union meetings are the second Tuesday’s of every month at 6:30PM. If you are called into a meeting with management, you should be asking the following questions: “If this discussion could in any way lead to my being discipline or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I respectfully request that my union representative, officer, or steward be present at this meeting.” We have too many members going into meeting with management without representation. You may call the local at 404-688-1256 for representation or reach out to me via email or phone. firstname.lastname@example.org 404-614-3230. Please remember you do not have to answer any questions until your representative arrives.
JANUARY 2018 UNION MEETING
From December through January we had 4 LGP meetings for groups covering our ET’s, MMT’s, and our Service Reps. We received notice that the company will be moving from 675 Peachtree to 754 Peachtree in the coming months. I ask that members remember to keep writing checks to pay their phone, U-Verse, and Mobile bills to save our collective bargained jobs. We have members who process those checks.
We have a group of MA’s at Morosgo who are having unnecessary issues because the company unjustly changed their vacation allowance, which is causing hardship on our members. We have filed a grievance on the behave of this group. I will keep everyone posted on the outcome of the grievance.
Our members in the Loyalty Department are still getting severe disciplines for alleged disconnects. The company is using the SORE Team, AKA “the RAT/Snitch” team against us. All because we are using the Service Promise Feedback tool, Please remember this is voluntary. It’s says: “The Service Promise Feedback Tool is intended to improve the customer experience by sharing feedback that can drive process improvement and coaching. THIS TOOL IS NOT INTENDED TO REPORT CODE OF BUSINESS CONDUCT VIOLATIONS which should be reported through your designated process. This tool may be used for quality control purposes.” We should not be turning in referrals against our on co-workers. Our members are getting suspended and terminated from these referrals. We need to let our neighbor know, ”I got you” because in these troubled times, we must build solidarity amongst each other.
