Vaccine Mandates

Verizon, like many employers across the United States, has opted to implement a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for non-union employees, and has notified the IBEW and CWA of their intention to do the same for bargained-for employees. Both IBEW and CWA have requested bargaining over the effects this mandate may have on our members.

This issue has raised many questions on legal rights related to vaccine mandates. The IBEW has put together a list of FAQ’s to help our members understand – Please take a moment to read.

We will keep you updated on any discussions with Verizon.

Verizon Vaccine Mandate

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. 

As of this date, union members are not included in this vaccine mandate. Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, before it can be implemented, it must be negotiated with the Union.

We will keep the membership up to date when the bargaining is scheduled. Please visit our website and call the union tape for any updates.
