Verizon's Proposal Explained
Bargain67

Our members are receiving FED EX packages that contained the companys proposal.
It's not enough that they spent thousands of dollars producing videos before they gave their proposal to the bargaining committee.  It seems they are spending an awful lot of money trying to sway you to see things their way.
When you receive this - advise your members to write on it-return to sender and drop it back into a FED EX box. Let the company know this money would be better spent for long term improvements to a contract we are currently negotiating.

Message From the Secret Secret Squirrel
Talked to 3 temp agencies today. All have nearly the same process.  At Manpower, you can go to http://www.manpowerjobs.com , create a profile and attach your resume, skills,  experience, etc.  Then call the office to see what is available at 301/739/4567.   At Spherion,  just call to schedule an interview at 301/739/6900.   At Aerotek, call the office to create a profile and let them know what commute, pay, shift you are comfortable with and create a profile.  They have 3 offices near us.  Aerotek Hagerstown is  301/393/3330.   Frederick is 240/629/7100,  and Chambersburg is 717/267/0087.  You only need to contact one.  They are all on the same system.
