    * * * * *

    Help and support for employees and members experiencing problems with substance abuse, chemical dependency, other addictions or stresses such as domestic violence, workplace transitions and other life issues. 


    A brief history of PEIR… 

    During contract negotiations in 1986, CWA and Mountain Bell signed a Letter of Agreement to explore, develop and implement a programto raise employee awareness and education around substance abuse and to provide adequate help to employees seeking appropriate assistance in dealing with such problems. 

    PEIR flourished in the Central region of U S WEST Communications, which later became Qwest and is now CenturyLink,  and has since expanded to include the Eastern and Western Regions. 

    There are currently over 75 PEIR Facilitators throughout CenturyLink, both craft and management, offering confidential help and support for employees dealing with problems of substance abuse, chemical dependency, other addictions and serious life stresses and issues.


    PEIR FACILITATORS HELP BY:

    • Forming a bridge between employees and professionals who facilitate appropriate evaluation and treatment.
    • Encouraging adherence to a treatment plan developed by an appropriate professional.
    • Assisting employees involved in treatment with matters pertaining to daily life activities.
    • Participating in return-to-work conferences, if requested to do so by the employee.

    PEIR FACILITATORS FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES:

    • Activities are initiated only at the request of the employee.
    • Facilitators strictly follow the guidelines for confidentiality.
    • Facilitators do not represent themselves as counselors or attempt to function as such.
    • PEIR activities are carefully differentiated and separate from any and all grievance and/or disciplinary activities.
    • PEIR facilitator activities are in addition to the performance of normal job duties as a CenturyLink employee.
