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.

James Gescheidle
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

AT&T Bargaining Update
CWA-AT&T Orange Mobility-Bargaining Report #19
April 28, 2022
As stated in the last few bargaining reports, we continue to make good progress at the bargaining table. It is very clear to the Bargaining Team that this progress is a direct result of the mobilization going on out in the field. In order to get us to a fair and equitable contract, we need every member covered by the Orange Contract to step up mobilization! You are doing a great job, KEEP FIGHTING! There is still plenty of work to be done at the bargaining table, but we are encouraged by the continued progress.
We have signed another temporary extension that will expire on May 20, 2022. Please stay in touch with your Local and your mobilizers. Once again, we know that the progress is being made because of your hard work! Stay United, Stay Informed and Stay Mobilized!
WE will prevail—ONE DAY LONGER, ONE DAY STRONGER!!

Workers Memorial Day

Workers Memorial Day
 

Each year on April 28, Workers Memorial Day, working people worldwide mourn for the people who were injured or killed on the job. The best way to ensure that workplaces are safe is to make sure workers have the freedom to organize and join a union.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of workers have become ill from COVID-19, and thousands have died. 

During the pandemic, CWA and many other Unions have fought for safety protections for workers and demanded access to ventilation, personal protective equipment, and other measures that protect workers from inhaling aerosol transmissible disease-causing agents at work. 

Union members have always pushed for safe jobs and for good jobs. More than 50 years ago, we fought for and won federal laws to create federal agencies and laws dedicated to protecting the lives of all workers.

We still have much work to do to make workplaces much safer and ensure that significant standards are issued and enforced to protect workers.

All workers deserve a safe place to work.  Speak up, shout out, get involved. Too many continue to be injured or die on the job.  

Don't Mourn, Organize!

Dear Local Presidents,

Today's bargaining report is below. Download a PDF version here.


CWA & AT&T Orange Mobility – Bargaining Report #13
March 18, 2022
We have been bargaining for 8 weeks, and we still remain far apart on just about every issue. There has been some movement in the right direction when it comes to benefits but that movement is not nearly enough to provide you with an affordable plan for you and your families. In the middle of a global health crisis, AT&T continues to try to put more of the financial burden on its employees. Your Bargaining Team will not accept their greed, and we will continue to fight for a fair and affordable benefits package. All other major issues are still on the table as well, and we will remain at the table until we secure a fair contract.
Mobilization is continuing to ramp up, so if you haven’t already, we need you to get involved. Every Local in the Orange Contract has been included in the mobilization plan so please contact your Local to participate in the mobilization activities that are going on throughout the country. The Union and Company have agreed to another three-week contract extension through April 8, 2022. We need you to make your voices heard and let the company know you are here to stand up for what you deserve. Stay Mobilized!
WE will prevail—ONE DAY LONGER, ONE DAY STRONGER!!

Broadband Town Hall

Please hold the date for a virtual town hall with District 1 Vice President Trainor regarding the massive public investment into broadband:

  

Date: Thursday, March 24

Time: 7-8 PM ET

Register here

 

We want to use this opportunity to inform telecom members about major developments in the telecommunications industry.

 

The Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act includes $65 billion for State broadband programs. Each state will receive at least $100 million, and many will get much more to expand access to broadband and build-out to unserved and underserved areas. This could be a MASSIVE investment in our jobs, our families, and the future of our union, but we need to fight for it. 

 

Where that money goes and how it’s spent is up to our state legislatures. We need to fight for strong labor standards that ensure the creation of good union jobs for our members. Otherwise, there’s a real danger all that money and work could go to providers that use non-union contractors and leave CWA members out of this groundbreaking project. Please see my recent op-ed in Times Union.  

Please share this invitation with your members and join us for a virtual town hall on broadband funding on March 24th from 7-8 pm to learn about this important fight for our work and how you can help

 

We have also put together this website with more information: https://cwad1.org/build-broadband-better-cwa

 

 

Thank you.
