Picnic review- We spoke about the great time we all had on August 26, 2015 at our Chapter’s picnic at FDR Park. We had over 30 retirees attend and our guest speaker was Joe Mayhew, Local 1103 Secretary/Treasurer.


Mobilization - Your chapter’s Executive Board and fellow retirees have been busy lately mobilizing at Verizon garages setting up informational lines in front of the garages. We always need more retirees to show up so please be available when we call or e-mail you if you are interested in maintain your free benefits.


Contract News – The Company has been dragging their feet in recent negotiations meetings but have said in a letter to Dennis Trainor VP of District 1, that if a new contract is not signed by the middle of October the company will begin mailing out enrollment materials regarding changes to the Verizon MEP for NY and NE associates to be in time for the annual enrollment period for plan year 2016.  The enrollment materials will reflect the plan designs set forth in the Sept. 19, 2012 Memorandum of Understanding.    Per that memorandum, retirees will begin paying towards their cost of medical coverage in 2016.
