Following two sixth-month extensions due to COVID-19, the NABET-CWA/ABC Master Agreement was scheduled to expire at midnight on Thursday, March 31, 2022. On Tuesday, March 29, the parties mutually agreed to extend the Master Agreement for an additional three months, with the expiration date moving to June 30, 2022. The Company has also agreed that, under the condition the successor Master Agreement is ratified by July 31, 2022, all wage and other payment increases will be retroactive to April 1, 2022. This extension means that all terms and conditions of the Master Agreement will continue in full effect through the end of June.
The Union has offered a number of weeks for future bargaining dates throughout May and June, but the dates and locations of the next rounds of talks are still to be determined. We will notify the members with the upcoming schedule as soon as those details have been finalized. Thank you for your patience throughout this process.
Please continue to monitor Sector and Local Union websites, and check email notices for updates relating to negotiations and mobilization activities.
