Fight for your Job Security!
Posted On: May 21, 2013
Last Thursday, May 16th, the New York Public Service Commission held a hearing for Verizon's attempt to abandon the landline in New York.  Verizon attempted to amend its tariff so that the company could abandon copper wire in favor of a wireless alternative, called Voice Link.  While Verizon focused on the west end of Fire Island, its amended tariff would have applied to all of New York State.  The PSC granted limited approval that will apply to Fire Island only, while they continue to review the issue and weigh public comment.  This small, but temporary victory is due to the work you put in collecting signatures on our petitions and having our local elected leaders lending their support.  Our work is not done!  We cannot let Verizon successfully change the law in New York State that will do away with your work and do away with you!  We will be in Albany over the next month working to get laws passed to protect our work and your jobs!  We need every member to call their Assemblyman and New York Senator to tell them we expect them to co-sponsor and vote for these job saving bills.  They are the following:

 

FiOS Study Bill Number A 6003

Call Center Bill Number A 7144 / Senate Version S4434

Voice Link Moratorium Bill - Bill Number 'pending' and

 

We cannot afford to have anyone sit on the sidelines!  Everyone must call to support our efforts in Albany!

The Assembly Switchboard # is: 518-455-4100

The Senate Switchboard # is: 518-455-2800

 

If you do not know who your Assemblyman or Senator is, Google NYS Assembly and NYS Senate and put in your address and zip code and it will tell you who represents you in New York State.

 

The time is now brothers and sisters to fight for our jobs!  The time is now to fight for our work!  Make the call now!

U.S. taxpayer money should not be awarded to companies that make a practice of sending U.S. jobs overseas – resulting in greater job losses here in the U.S., decimate communities, and jeopardize consumers.
