Chris Shelton for CWA President

Please sign up Sisters and Brothers, As I’m sure you know by now, CWA President Larry Cohen has decided not to seek re-election at the 2015 Convention. I along with others tried to convince Larry to make a different decision, but in the end he has made his decision and we must all respect that. Larry Cohen is a good friend and I believe he has been a great president of our union.

Verizon EIPP Offer **UPDATE 10/17**

President Cohen's Letter to the Members

September 18, 2014 Dear Sisters and Brothers: After much thought, I have decided not to seek reelection next June as President of our union. I informed the Executive Board at our meeting today. I am confident that our Executive Board can support a strong candidate but this is not a campaign note and that decision is up to you.

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.
