Comcast Bargaining Update #2

Posted in

The Union and the Company met for 4 separate sessions today to exchange Proposals. During one of the sessions today the parties tentatively agreed on one proposal that defined the benefit provided to employees who are summoned for Jury Duty.  Please understand that since we are bargaining a brand new contract we are starting from scratch and need to begin with the most basic provisions. The Union and the Company will be meeting again on October 22nd and 23rd.  We will continue to update you as progress is made.


In Solidarity,


Your Bargaining Committee


Comcast Bargaining Update #1

Posted in

Opening Statement from the Union as presented to Comcast-

The IBEW through local 824 comes to the table today with the goal to bargain a fair and equitable agreement for both the employees and Comcast in a timely manner. We commit to bargain this agreement in good faith and expect that Comcast would do the same.

In preparation for today, we have reviewed existing Comcast agreements in other locations.  But more importantly we have reached out to the employees and asked them to prioritize the items they would like to have addressed through bargaining. With that in mind, as the Union Chair of this committee, I will be keeping the employees informed of the progress made at the table throughout this process.  There will be no secrets behind closed doors and our hope is that the Company is honest with the employees as well.  The employees are only seeking a fair agreement.

We believe that our proposals, as presented, will show the employees that the Company does value their hard work and is committed to providing them the best benefits and wage package.

As we progress through this bargaining session, and as the need arises, we will bring additional employees to the table to address specific concerns within the different work groups.

We have prepared 8 initial proposals. We believe we should be able to work through these proposals since they are staples of most Collective Bargaining Agreements and should not be unfamiliar to you. Throughout the process, as we present additional proposals we will be prepared to discuss each proposal at length to ensure the Company understands fully the reasons for each proposal.

The Union reserves its’ right, as stated in the beginning of its’ package, to add/modify or delete any proposals.


The Company and the Union met at 3 different times throughout the day today to exchange proposals. We are reviewing each proposal, which was presented and are currently working on proposals to provide the basic provisions that most contracts are founded upon.  As we progress through bargaining we will continue to update this page.
