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.
Verizon notified CWA of their intention to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for the unionized workforce. CWA has requested to bargain over the impact that any mandate may have on our members.
We expect to begin having meetings with management around October 25th, 2021, to discuss and bargain regarding the implementation and impact of any mandate..
We will keep you posted regarding any developments
