Let's stand together

In just about 2 months the Legacy T contract expires with AT&T. We need to stand together and show the company we won't settle for there layoff plans and increase of medical costs to us, and cutbacks on medical benefits. A lot of our members are approaching retirement years, we need to fight for retiree benefits, not just for us but for our sisters and brothers before us that helped get us where we are now. The last contract the company refused to negotiate retiree benefits. WE CAN NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!!  It's not to early to start showing them we mean business. We can start mobilizing with something as small as everyone wearing a red shirt on Thursdays.  This is a fight for your future and possibly your families as well. Let's stand together and show them we mean business. 

 

Also we will be utilizing the new local app for mobilizing efforts and updates on contract negotiations. so go to the itunes app store and Androis store and find the CWA 1150 app. download it for free and at the bottom register yourself.

Association of Flight Attendants-CWA International President Sara Nelson was elected Monday to the AFL-CIO Executive Council.

The AFL-CIO called for a new direction for U.S. "trade promotion authority," also known as "Fast Track," one that ensures that Congress approves trading partners before negotiations begin, includes objectives that benefit all, not just multinational corporations, and gives Congress the ability to strip out provisions that fail to meet these objectives.

Former Labor Sec. Robert Reich fired up a big crowd attending a rally in Atlanta on Tuesday, held in conjunction with the AFL-CIO Executive Council meeting.

CWA activists and allies met with their members of Congress and staffs, and organized town hall meetings to push back against legislators who won't commit to stopping 'Fast Track' authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

A state judge ruled Monday that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie broke the law when he cut $1.57 billion from a promised payment to public workers' pension system. Now the administration must work with state lawmakers to fulfill its original commitment.
