AT&T Benefit update

We have been informed that AT&T Benefits MISTAKENLY sent out letters to some of our members stating that their children were being removed from AT&T Medical Coverage because they reached the age of 26.  Unfortunately, they are sending it to people whose children are NOT 26 yet.  Though we will try to confirm that it is fixed from this end, I would encourage any member who gets one of these letters in error to call benefits and make sure it is corrected.
 
NOTE: AT&T Dental Coverage does end on December 31 of the year the dependent reaches age 23.

CWA International News

CWA members across the country celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.

CWA and coalition members are fighting back against Fast Track authority and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. This is how we'll stop Fast Track.

CWA President Larry Cohen and CWA members speak out on Fast Track and TPP.

The Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU) is rejecting criticism of CWA President Larry Cohen leveled by an unnamed "U.S. trade official."

A new survey of likely 2016 voters found that Americans want open-door trade talks that advance stronger protections for our economy and environment.

TNG-CWA President Bernie Lunzer was re-elected to a third term last week, but he won't be known as president of The Newspaper Guild-CWA.

The U.S. Supreme Court's controversial Citizens United decision five years ago on Wednesday turned our political system upside down, elevating money from corporations and the wealthiest individuals above the voices of ordinary citizens.

The NewsGuild-CWA, at its Biennial meeting in Orlando, FL last week, surprised President Larry Cohen with the creation of a movement building award in his name as he met with Guild activists. The award will be presented to a Guild member or local staffer every other year at The NewsGuild-CWA conference.

CWA has supported the president in initiatives throughout his presidency. However, we cannot stand with the president in his alliance with Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker John Boehner, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Business Roundtable to send more U.S. jobs offshore, undermine U.S. communities and weaken U.S. sovereignty. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has much more to do with protecting the investment of multinational corporations and maneuvering around China than lowering trade barriers.
