The Communications Workers of America along with other Connecticut AFL-CIO Unions and supporters held a press conference on the steps of the New Haven City Hall on July 2nd to protest layoffs and to bring attention to a plan that will privatize regional emergency dispatch services.
Over 20 members joined the Executive Board and showed up to fight for their job security at a town board meeting in Harrison, NY to demonstrate support for a new FIOS video franchise agreement. This is the first VFA in Local 1103's jurisdiction in over 5 years and was the result of a program intiated within Local 1103 called FIOS for ALL.
CWA Local 1103 filed an NLRB charge against Nyack Hospital last week for unilaterally changing medical benefits to a substandard medical plan. This is an outrageous and aggressive attempt to deny our members a contractually and mutually agreed to benefit. Stay posted.
