    CWA Social Media Policy Guidelines

    CWA strongly supports the use of social media sites to discuss and advocate for the important issues facing members and working families today. While these sites offer many advantages, they also can cause serious legal problems if they are not properly used and can lead to complicated legal proceedings as well as potential disciplinary action against employee users. We have developed these guidelines for CWA members to consult when using social media to help avoid legal or other problems.

      For the past 15 months, many of our members were able to garage from home during the Covid-19 pandemic. These arrangements were necessary to keep our members safe and to survive the unprecedented circumstances. When we left our workplaces, no one realized what our country was facing and no one expected it would last as long as it has.

      Verizon Members: D1 message: Work at Home extended through 6/30/2021! Home Garaging extended through 6/30/2021! As the Company is planning on returning to workplaces after this pandemic, they have made plans for their administrative groups which include their management staff and nonunion workforce. As you may have seen earlier this week, the Company released a video that described three different work groups, Work Based, Home Based and Hybrid Workforce groups who will be returning to the workplaces over the next four months. The plans outlined in the Company’s video do not include the unionized workforce. The Company has yet to have these discussions with the Union. We plan on meeting with the Company in the next few weeks to discuss their plans and the impact it may have on our members. In the meantime, we agreed to the Company’s proposals to extend the Covid-19 Work at Home and Home Garaging agreements for another 30 days. We will keep you informed with regards to those discussions. Please check out the Contracts/ Loa's section for the new extensions.
