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

Broadband Petition

Dear CWA Members,

 
We’re almost at the finish line and we need your help. At the end of this week, we will be dropping our petition demanding that New York State’s broadband plan includes our proposals for good, union jobs. We need your help getting this over the finish line with as many signatures as possible!

>>Sign the petition to help ensure that New York State’s plan on how to spend our broadband dollars includes these proposals! https://action.cwa.org/petitions/stand-up-for-good-broadband-jobs/

As you know, CWA secured billions of dollars of federal funding for States to build out broadband to unserved and underserved areas as part of the Infrastructure bill. As part of the requirements for this funding, New York State is about to submit its plan to the Federal Government on how they plan to spend nearly $1 BILLION on broadband deployment and we need to make sure our recommendations are included in the plan. With big funding dollars comes out of state, fly-by-night contractors looking to make a quick buck with cheap labor, and we need to make sure the work goes to highly-trained, unionized broadband technicians - us! 

What are we fighting for?
    1    Fiber-optic technology wherever and whenever possible!
    2    Prioritization of high-road employers who have:
    1    A directly-employed workforce
    2    Robust in-house training
    3    Locally based workforce
    3    Transparent and enforceable workforce plans

In Solidarity,

Update regarding Verizon Vacation Selection
