NYC Parking Production Assistants (PPAs), who voted unanimously in February to join CWA Local 1101, have come to a tentative agreement on their first union contract!

Workers from the Daily Hampshire Gazette and Valley Advocate and AT&T Mobility vote to join with NewsGuild-CWA and CWA.

In remarks at this week's Democracy Initiative Annual Meeting, CWA President Chris Shelton urged attendees to take on the power of corporate interests in our political system to build a system that represents all of our interests.

CWA sent a letter this week calling on Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) to hold hearings in early 2019 on the proposed merger between T-Mobile and Sprint.

Approximately 400 children are infected with HIV every day. Together, we can stop this.

Detailed economic analysis by CWA has shown that the proposed merger would eliminate 1,705 jobs in New York and 30,000 jobs nationwide.

“The 1% and their high-paid mouthpieces want us to focus on what is different about us in order to prevent us from uniting and fighting for our families and communities”

IUE-CWA members who work on military installations and NASA facilities gathered to ask for support to pass the Workers’ Freedom to Negotiate Act, which would expand workers' freedom to join unions and negotiate collectively to win better pay and conditions.

The final deadline for the 2019-2020 school year is 11:59 p.m., EDT, April 30, 2019.

May each day bring you reasons to give thanks!

AT&T Surplus 12/14

There are no words that can describe what happened to Local 1150 members today. 
 
If you don't already know there was a surplus declared today and 22 of our members were affected, all of them in Piscataway NJ.
 
11 Customer Switch Technicians
10 Customer Maintenance Technicians
1 Reports Clerk.
Including our members there was a total of 77 Legacy T represented members surplused today. There are resources available to those affected, so please do not hesitate to reach out to us so we can help in any way possible.
AT&T has consistently stated that they want to extend the watermark to almost 50% which means they want to get rid of that many of us under the Legacy T contract. So apparently they are going to get to that number one way or another. There is a National Union call on Monday night and everyone is welcome to join. 

December 17, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. (EST) to give an update and discuss next steps in bargaining. To register for the call text LEGTCALL to 69866.

VTP offer today

And AT&T keeps reminding us how much they value us by presenting another VTP offer today. This one is for 80 members under the Legacy T contract. There is no surplus attached. They are moving this VTP at a surprisingly fast pace with members being off payroll in 3 weeks, where it is usually 30 days.
