    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.

    Effects Bargaining Report

    COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate- Verizon

    November 4, 2021

    On October 14, 2021, Verizon notified CWA of its intent to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for the unionized workforce unless an individual has a medical or religious exemption. The Company cited safety of employees and customers and the need to comply with federal, state, local and customer requirements as its reason. 

    CWA requested to bargain over the effects that a mandate may have on our members.

    CWA Districts 1 and 2-13, as well as IBEW New York and New Jersey, met with Verizon on October 28th and November 3rd to open these discussions.

    In both meetings, we requested information related to the mandate, including to whom the mandate will apply, the processes for submitting proof of vaccination, and the process for requesting an accommodation for medical, religious or other legally recognized basis.

    The Union is evaluating the information provided before making any proposals.

    We will continue to meet with Verizon and will keep you posted regarding any developments.
