Know Your Weingarten Rights!

If an employee has a reasonable belief that discipline or other adverse consequences may result from what he or she says, the employee has the right to request union representation. Management is not required to inform the employee of his/her Weingarten rights; it is the employees responsibility to know and request.

"If this discussion can in any way lead to me being disciplined, I respectfully request union representation before I answer any questions"

Protect yourself! Learn it, use it!

A Message From The President

The Executive Board welcomes all Communications Workers of America, AFL,CIO Local 1120 members to our web page. The purpose of this web page is to provide a means of supplying information about our local and labor issues.    To all cwa local 1120 members. I want to thank all of my fellow union brothers and sisters for their commitment, and determination in keeping our local strong. Together we can overcome any challenge that we may face.

Frank J. Fauci Jr.
President, CWA Local 1120

           

 We must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.
Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone…Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote.”

Martin Luther King

      

                                                                                                                                                                                 


What's New at CWA 1120
Tentative Deal at AT&T

After almost a year of hard bargaining and unprecedented mobilization, we have reached a groundbreaking tentative agreement for 21,000 CWA members under the Orange contract at AT&T Mobility. 

Never before have we seen this level of mobilization for a fair contract, including a three-day strike that shut down hundreds of stores across the country, and never before have we won so much at the bargaining table. 

Click here to read the bargaining report with all the details.

For the first time at any wireless company in the country, workers have won guaranteed customer service work at U.S. call centers, representing an 80% increase in the share of total call volume over the current levels. We also won first-time job security protections and more stable pay and reduced intrusive surveillance at work. 

If you took part in mobilization activities, walked a strike line, wore a button or a sticker, passed out flyers, or called your managers demanding a fair contract - this is your victory. Our bargaining team could not have achieved this breakthrough tentative agreement without the hard work that you did fighting for a fair contract. 

We didn't win everything of course, but we moved forward together and will keep up the fight. 

Please join us for a town hall call on Thursday, December 14 at 8:30pm ET7:30pm CT6:30pm MT5:30pm PT to learn more about the tentative agreement. Text MobilityCall to 69866 to RSVP to the call.

Together, we showed that we can beat back regressive proposals and make improvements at work when we stick together and mobilize. Let this be a sign to all companies that put profits above workers: when we stand together, we win.

In solidarity, 
Dennis Trainor 
CWA District 1 Vice President
