Wear Red on Thursday

In 1989, the CWA  brothers and sisters in New York were on strike.  One of the New York members from CWA Local 1103 walking the picket line was Chief Union Steward, E. Gerald Horgan. 25 years ago this August 15th (2014), Gerry Horgan was killed from injuries he sustained when he was run down by a “scab” as he walked a picket line while striking for health care benefits.

Dear friends,   A new school year is here!  Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking to first year students in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at SUNY Polytechnic (formerly SUNYIT) in Marcy.  Exciting things are happening on the campus of SUNY Poly with construction of the Nano-Utica facility nearing completion.

Call the PSC NOW
Call the PSC opinion hotline TODAY! Dial 1-800-335-2120, press #1 then #2 and tell them "New York needs good telecommunications jobs and high quality service for all. Deregulation isn't getting the job done. The PSC should open a formal proceeding to investigate the state of telecom jobs and services."
Save at&t Jobs!
This week, two more call centers in Atwater, CA shuttered. That's almost another 400 jobs gone in one fell swoop. Jobs for your brothers and sisters that no longer exist. Now more than ever, leaders at AT&T need to hear from you — and we're starting with AT&T Regional President LeAnne Priebe, the person making the decisions. Let's flood President Priebe's inbox and demand that she and AT&T protect CWA jobs. Click here to send a pre-written email to President Priebe — it just takes 2 minutes.
We want FiOS!
Urge Verizon to give the citizens of CNY access to it's flagship FiOS product. FiOS speed, reliability, and security will provide incredible bandwidth to businesses and government agencies, provide educational entities access to high quality video conferencing, and give residential customers affordable access to telephone, television, and high speed internet.
