Broadband Petition
Updated On: Nov 01, 2023

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 

>>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/


In Solidarity,
