    I believe this discussion could lead to my being disciplined.  I therefore request that my union representative or officer be present to assist me at the meeting.  I further request reasonable time to consult with my union representative regarding the subject and purpose of the meeting.  Please consider this a continuing request; without representation I shall not participate in the discussion;  without representation I shall not participate in the discussion.  I shall not consent to any searches or tests affecting my person, property, or effects without first consulting with my union representatives.

    OUR GOAL IS 100% PARTICIPATION IN C.O.P.E. Now more than ever it is imperative that we have our friends in elected offices. We need all the help we can get to fight back corporate greed and maintain our job security through our negotiations for a new contract. Please CLICK HERE to print out and sign up for C.O.P.E. Please mail the completed form to I.B.E.W. 2322, 106 West Grove St. Middleboro, Ma 02346. $1.00 a week is a small price to pay.

      The IBEW System Council T-6, IBEW Local 2213, IBEW Local 827 and CWA in New York and Mid-Atlantic have reached a tentative agreement for a contract extension that would expire in 2026.  This tentative agreement is subject to final review of the MOU and ratification by the membership.  Wotk at Home is part of the agreement and our members that were slated to be moved to Providence will continue to work from home and be assigned a new reporting location within Local 2322's jurisdiction within 30 days of ratification.  Full details of the agreement and information about ratification meetings will be available by early next week.  

      I would like to thank the stewards, Executive Board and members of Local 2322 for their support through this process.

      I hope you and your loved ones have a happy and safe 4th of July.
