IBEW T-6 Members Overwhelmingly Approve VZ Contract Extension

IBEW 2222 members, along with our brothers and sisters across the T6, have overwhelmingly voted to approve the new 4-year extension of our contract with Verizon, with 96% voting in favor of ratifying.   

The new agreement extends the current collective bargaining agreement, which covers more than 34,000 workers, to August 2023 and includes an 11.2 percent wage increase over the next four years.

The existing contract was ratified in 2016 after a 7-week strike.

“This contract represents a tremendous response and a great collaboration between the IBEW, CWA, and Verizon,” said Myles Calvey, IBEW 2222 Business Manager & Chairman of IBEW System Council T-6, representing 5,600 Verizon employees at 8 local unions across New England.

“Coming off the 8-week strike of just two years ago, I’m happy each side understood how important it was that we put divisive issues behind us so that we could focus together on the customers and the competition.”

The extension was ratified last week by CWA members.

“I’m proud of our IBEW members at Verizon, who stuck together and hammered out a strong agreement that only raises standards for telecommunications workers,” said IBEW International President Lonnie R. Stephenson. “I hope it represents a new positive chapter in our relationship with Verizon, one based on collaboration, not confrontation”

Paul Feeney for State Senate

PaulFeeney-StateSenate-RGB-02.new size

IBEW 2222’s own Paul Feeney, now State Senator Paul Feeney, is running for re-election for State Senate in Bristol & Norfolk County.  Paul has worked tirelessly for our membership and has brought that same work ethic to the Statehouse, fighting tirelessly for working families.

Paul has a substantial record in politics, having served as a Foxboro Selectman, Senator James Timilty’s Chief of Staff, Labor Director for Congressman Stephen Lynch’s campaign, state director in both Massachusetts and Connecticut for Senator Bernie Saunders Presidential campaign, and currently serves in the Massachusetts Senate representing the Bristol & Norfolk district. He is the Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Service, Vice-Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Health and serves on the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure.

Regular working-class people in our communities deserve a voice in the Massachusetts Senate. Since getting sworn in last year, I have worked hard in a bi-partisan way to improve our neighborhoods, address sky-rocketing healthcare costs, fight for our schools, protect our environment, provide for our veterans and seniors and give a voice to working people.  I’ve been able to deliver for the people of our district because I never let politics get in the way of progress.

Senator Paul Feeney.
