As you may know we (CWA) have received a proposal from Verizon regarding a surplus offer. One of the provisions of the Company's proposal is to offer an option to make this offer on a local by local basis. The National Union has told the Company that we are not interested in dividing our Union in this way.
Activist from CWA Locals' 1103, 1105, 1118, and 1120 attended Political Boot-camp training for two days to become your 2014 Hudson Valley Legislative Political Action Team. The LPAT'ers joined together to learn and discuss how best to engage our fellow members in this year's electoral season.
CWA Local 1103 announces at press conference that it has forged an emergent partnership with Don Bosco Worker's, Inc. The reason: to counter the crime of wage theft which undermines our local economy and principles. Workers, including those belonging to a union, are only as strong as the weakest amongst us.
Dear Sisters and Brothers:
After much thought, I have decided not to seek reelection next June as President of our union.
I informed the Executive Board at our meeting today. I am confident that our Executive Board can support a strong candidate but this is not a campaign note and that decision is up to you.
Thank you to all of our Members who attended last night's General Membership Meeting. The meeting was well attended, lively and respectful. Much information was discussed and an overview of our union at the national and Local level was provided.
Today, August 15, 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the passing of Gerry Horgan. Gerry was a member of Local 1103 and was killed on the picket line during the 1989 strike. Please join us at the annual ceremony at 12:00 p.m.
