For questions about the Tentative Agreement (TA), members can call the union hall at: 614-485-1265.

Contract Ratification Voting will begin at noon Thursday, June 22. Watch for an email at your city account from Survey Monkey (via Susan Wilson). Please also check your spam filter settings and folders. Voting will remain open until 11:59 a.m. Monday, June 26.
This evening our Negotiations Team reached a Tentative Agreement (TA) with the city. The team will be working Friday to prepare a packet that will be posted online ASAP, but no later than Tuesday.
Don’t forget Monday is the Juneteenth holiday. Please be thoughtful in your celebrations and enjoy the day.
I am as excited as any to know the details of our TA, and I assure you information will be shared as rapidly as possible. I remain confident that our team is bringing us the best contract possible and very likely our best yet.
Very briefly on the process going forward: a contract ratification vote will be held electronically; if approved by our membership, the contract will go to City Council for approval. If turned down, we face the options of returning to the table or going to a Fact Finder.
Watch your city email for a message from Survey Monkey via Susan Wilson to vote on the contract; most likely on Thursday or Friday. We are voting electronically and will be conducting the vote as soon as possible to get ahead of the City Council summer break, and to get your benefits and money to you quickly.
Make no mistake, the Freedom Foundation has one goal: to weaken CWA Local 4502 right before we start contract negotiations with the City of Columbus.
Don’t be distracted by their patronizing breakup-themed email. The only thing the Freedom Foundation wants to break up is yours and your co-workers’ collective bargaining strength so we can’t improve your pay, benefits and working conditions. Apparently, the very idea of employees having a strong union as their advocate at work threatens the extremists behind the misleading email you received.
The Freedom Foundation knows how powerful a union voice can be — that’s why they’re spending so much money and time to mine your personal data and contact you at work. Let’s show them that we understand what a strong union is worth by remaining loyal Union members and negotiating a good contract with the City of Columbus.
The email they sent you should have an “unsubscribe” link at the bottom. Click to unsubscribe. If you are emailed again after you unsubscribe, please let us know.
Let’s stick together going into negotiations with the City and show everyone what the power of a union really brings. If you have not yet responded to your Union’s survey, please do so by February 26th. If you have not yet received a link to the survey, please contact Joyce at [email protected].
If you have not yet received a link to the survey, please contact Joyce at [email protected].
I Love my CWA Negotiations Team, seen here hard at work again today! Left to right: Hugh Williams, Brent Writesel, Jim Weber, Susan Wilson, (Eric Cunningham – absent) and Sarah Ingles (attorney).
The team along with our attorney have been meeting twice per week since January, (now three times per week) in preparation to begin negotiations February 27.
Members wishing to receive negotiations updates should provide their home/personal email address and home/cell phone to: [email protected].
