Mike Spillane, of IBEW 2326, and Don Trementozzi, CWA Local 1400, represent the nearly 2000 hard-working men and women at FairPoint who build, maintain, and service our critical telecommunications network. They explain that management has not been willing to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement. The company has been unresponsive to the workers' major proposals. Management has continued to be antagonistic and dismissive of all attempts to reach a fair and equitable agreement.
EQUAL TIME is where Vermonters talk about issues ignored by the corporate media—mothers opposing toxic pollution, workers fighting for decent jobs, nurses working for health care reform, students speaking out about their education, farmers struggling against corporate agribusiness, and more.
