Local 2323 is a member of The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. The local primarily represents 900 workers of Verizon Communications, and retirees of their predecessor companies.
Local 2323 members enjoy what many considered the gold standard in wage and benefits in the telecommunications industry. Our local has a rich history of advocacy on behalf of its members, and fighting to protect our hard fought gains.

Business Manager Report
In 2018, our Local has some stuff coming out worth being excited about; we are developing a new smartphone app which will provide up-to-date information at your fingertips, access to an online Associates degree with “no money out of your pocket” for our members and their families, continued solidarity events, ongoing community action, and another election cycle for our Political Action Committee to engage in. Additionally, over the next few weeks, my staff and I intend on meeting with the Directors from each department to discuss their 2018 business plans. We will be sure to communicate updates to you as they become available.
With the extreme temperatures facing our members, it is imperative that we all take the time to perform our job Safely. Article G18.02 of our collective bargaining agreement states:
Safety is a concern to the Company and the Union. The Company and the Union mutually recognize the need for a work environment in which safe operations can be achieved in accomplishing all phases of work and the need to promote better understanding and acceptance of the principles of safety on the part of all employees to provide for their own safety and that of their fellow employees, customers and the general public.
Article P 8.01 is the inclement weather clause which states the Company recognizes that the nature of work and the health and safety of employees are important factors when assigning work during inclement weather……the Company will furnish protective equipment, such as tent heaters, heating equipment or heated motor vehicles so that employees can get of of the weather for periods necessary to avoid continuous exposure. Please take the time necessary to perform your job safely!
Finally, as we enter 2018, we are asking each member to make one of their New Year’s resolutions to begin saving for our upcoming contract expiration. Although it seems like we just got back to work, we are only a short 18 months away from another potential work stoppage! Obviously, no one has crystal ball to anticipate what “may” happen but between 2011 and 2015 we have missed nine weeks of income. While in Rhode Island, IBEW Local 2323 has been successful in fighting for and receiving favorable unemployment decisions on behalf of our members, nothing is a guarantee. Please take the necessary steps to plan accordingly, even small investments can accumulate quickly.
Over the next few weeks, we have numerous meetings scheduled. On February 8th we have a Plant Business Manager’s meeting, February 12th a System Council T-6 meeting, and on the February 14th a meeting with V.P. Julie Slattery. In addition, we also have numerous Labor functions and political fundraisers to attend.
The upcoming Plant meeting has an agenda set to discuss a wide variety of topics.
OPT staffing, training, assignments, qualification and procedures at the critical desk
The Power Follow Through techs responsibilities
Plans for CO and COEI including rumored upcoming bids
Any planned surpluses
DRC- scheduling issues, forcing when the DU’s home, etc….
On February 12th, the System Council T-6 will meet in our office for our monthly meeting. In addition to our normal business of the T-6 we will put together an agenda for our meeting with V.P. Julie Slattery on February 14th. As information becomes available we will be sure to communicate it.
Last month, Assistant Business Agent, Eddie Blackburn and I attended the 2018 kickoff for the FSC, FNT, MCO and EVRC work groups. While we are making great strides in those work groups including moral issues and a reduction in Saturdays in the FCSA title, we still have major concerns with overall skilling and ultimately the loss year over year in call volumes. We must continue to look for new work to bring in to these work groups to offset the reduction in calls.
Last year, in the February Business Manager’s report, we mentioned a need for help in our endeavor in organizing and how it is critical to our survival. It read “While we have put some attention on organizing we need the help of all our members, with the same enthusiasm as the work stoppage, to track down leads.…. I understand you may get sick of hearing me say it but if we do nothing to capitalize on our gains we will surely watch the Labor Movement dwindle in union density. Please help me educate those members, not in attendance, on the importance of this! It will make our life and the lives of our children a much better place”. The routine opening statement by Verizon, has included a comparison of our wages and benefits to our competition and the overall workforce in the country. According to the Department of Labor and Training website, Occupational wage rates are a product of the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey. Each year the Labor Market Information (LMI) unit of the RI Department of Labor and Training surveys over 1,400 employers to determine the RI wage rates for over 500 occupations. The median hourly wage rate for all occupations is $19.10. At the end of this contract, a journeyman SST will make $44.06. Therefore, it is imperative for ALL members to help organize workers in to our great Local.
