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.

Dear Sisters and Brothers:

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.
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.
