My Life At Verizon

I am an employee of Verizon. This blog will give you a glimpse into my daily life at Verizon.

Mixed emotions…

   I am going back to work on Tuesday. I am happy and anxious at the same time. We still do not have a contract. The strike proved how woefully un-prepared Verizon management was. I now get to go back to work and clean up the mess that was left behind. For the first week back, the company can force me to work unlimited overtime. The company can try to spin it any way they want. We, the workers, know that very little work was completed in the last two weeks. Hopefully, we get a contract in the next few weeks. I don’t think I would like picketing in the cold weather…  

Back to work…

   I will be returning to work on Tuesday. We will be working under the old contract until the new one gets worked out. The two sides must be close or we would not be returning to work. It feels good to be going back to work. There will be plenty of work to be done when we get back. The over-time in the next month should easily make up for the two weeks of lost pay. I am proud that we fought to keep what took 50 years to bargain for. Lets hope we get a new contract without many concessions…

  

The Beginning

I have spare time and decided to start a blog about my life at Verizon. I hope to write an informative blog and to interact with anyone who may read it. I do not plan to censor this blog, but reserve the right to do so. I have a few basic rules to follow. If you can’t follow the rules, your post will be deleted.

The Rules:

1: Keep it civil!
2: No profanity
3: No name calling

I feel that these are pretty simple rules and that they will be broken many times during the labor dispute.

I welcome comments, suggestions, and opinions…
